Rated5out of5byhillreefromColorful and functionalThis coat works wonderfully for wicking away water and can be worn in colder weather to keep rain out if you layer up. Love the color and a perfect size.

Rated5out of5bysnooksfromIt's in my hiking bag!I needed a lightweight waterproof jacket for my hiking bag that didn't cost an arm and a leg. I found this one on the sale rack in black and will also use it in my travel bag. Has a fitted look that add a little style.........

Rated4out of5byIxqfrompretty in mauveI wear this over my daily office wear, which is often fairly bulky indigenous dress. Probably should have gone up a size to accommodate lots of clothing underneath. Very comfortable with light Anglo dress underneath.

Rated4out of5byjekko12fromGreat Value JacketThis jacket is great for a light rain but might not be enough for heavier down pours. The hood is a little shorter so it is easier to see around you but it may not work if you have a big head. Sleeves feel a little long but nothing that can't be worked around. Love the color and the fit.

Rated4out of5byPdxbarbfromRainy Day JacketGreat jacket for moderate wet weather. Packs down well and pit zips help regulate. Not sure it's the jacket for a downpour or cold weather, although the precip pants are great in hard rain!

Rated5out of5byDaveHefffromBought as a gift for my wifeI bought this as a gift for my wife--she wanted a waterproof jacket she could wear when we go hiking but also everyday (i.e. to/from work). She was concerned about cost and style, and is very happy with both! I have a Patagonia Torrentshell that I love, but the Marmot was about 30% less expensive for essentially the same set up. If neither jacket had their respective branding on them, it would be difficult to tell the difference. Technically, these jackets are pretty basic--very light weight, waterproof, no-frills covers with hoods. The hood tightens and fits snugly, doesn't feel like it's loose or going to fall off easily. The pockets are amply sized for wallets, phones, keys, etc. The waterproofing is very good--neither her jacket nor mine has leaked at all.
I can't say anything bad about this jacket--If you're looking for a basic lightweight, waterproof jacket, the PreCip and the Torrentshell are both very good choices.

Rated4out of5bycgcgfromNice Looking and LihtweightI have had only one opportunity to test this jacket in the arid state of Colorado. It started out fine, but after a mile or so, I was getting pretty warm and after a few miles, fairly wet. So, it is not the best for displacing body moisture but it did fine keeping the rain out. I thought there were inside pockets but there is no bottom so they will not work to keep items inside and dry; a missed opportunity. Good collar/hood arrangement. Good fit. Lightweight.

Rated2out of5byGardenHikerfromNot WATERPROOFUsed this jacket for a multiday backpacking trip in the Maroon-Bells Snowmass Wilderness in Colorado last weekend. I've had the jacket for over a year, so I thought I'd be covered - it's worked so far. Well, up to this point it's been in light rain, as well as salt water spray, washed gently and air dried - and has performed great. Not so this weekend. We hiked for over four hours in continual gentle rain - I was SOAKED by the end - the jacket was wet and was NOT waterproofing. My pants survived the trek, but the jacket did not. Very disappointing.
Use for light rain, wind barrier, or occassional use. Do not take into the backcountry unless you'd like to have a brush with hypothermia.
I'd really saved and researched this jacket, but looks like other reviews state the same thing - not waterproof. Given the brand, this is a suprise amd disappointment.
