by fromLook elsewhere I bought this rain jacket before a 3 month backpacking trip through Europe. I expected to use it often for rain protection and for the pockets, layering underneath for warmth. Water seeped in through the seams AND the fabric. It was especially bad near the pack's shoulder straps. The pit zips were nice, but seeing as I needed a rain jacket, this product was not satisfying. Also, as it got colder I started wearing gloves that often got caught on the pocket velcro closures. Bummer.

by fromFalse Advertising! This product was a gift that was intended to be a fall/spring hiking jacket that would be wind resistant and waterproof enough to be a basic shell layer. I also wanted to use it while running in winter and rainy conditions. This jacket is perfect for cold weather running, as the pit zips allow for ventilation, while the material of the jacket still retains warmth. It is too warm for running in anything warmer than 50 degrees. It also has worked as a decent shell layer during temperate hikes (I wore while jogging down the Tuckerman's Ravine trail from Lunch Rocks after a warmish day of spring skiing). In rainy conditions, water leaks into the jacket through the fabric, making the inner sleeves, chest, and back damp, which could be a problem for someone trying to stay warm when occasional stops must be made. The seams are not sealed, so I'm not sure how Marmot gets away with labeling this as "waterproof." My advice: If you're really looking to stay dry, buy something with sealed seams and with GoreTex Performance or GoreTex Pro material.

by fromThis is not a rain jacket I bought the jacket as a rain jacket. It leaks water through the fabric. I returned it after 3 rainy days.

by fromA Huge Disappointment I hate to say it (because I'm out a decent sum of money), but this jacket was a farce. I chose this company after my other rain jacket wore out, based on its reputation. I read all the reviews for this product, and overall, they were good. I went back after the jacket took a dump (after approx 10 wears in light to moderate rain) and read the reviews from the time period I purchased it (April/May 2011) on forward, and they were horrible horrible horrible. Has this company considered the possibility that in the Chinese factory where they have all their products made now, a shipment of knockoffs was switched with the real deal? And does this company realize what that does to its reputation? Even if that isn't true, the cheapness (at full price) of this product is causing you to lose long-standing customers, and leaves you dependent on those who buy cheap, disposable clothing.

by fromAttractive but NOT waterproof This jacket is handy if you are trotting from the parking lot into the grocery store during a mild summer shower, but forget wearing it in real rain. I have worn this jacket in torrential downpours and regular rainstorms and in each case I have ended up with a jacket that is WET on the inside and out. My husband is an apparel designer and offered to test the jacket in his lab to see if it's waterproof, but why bother? I've tested it in the field and I know it's not. I am disappointed because the jacket is only a year or two old but I'm already in the market for a new one.

by fromLeaky, leaky, leaky I enjoyed the jacket for one month before the seams and lining began to fray and pull apart from the outer fabric. The collar and hood were particularly frayed and very quickly lost their weather protection properties. I live in Seattle, so this was a really significant problem even for everyday wear.

by fromNot Waterproof About 2 months after purchase (maybe 8-10 times worn), this jacket lost ALL of its waterproof capabilities. I'm not sure why I kept hanging on to it, but I finally switched it out for a Patagonia jacket, which has worked out much better (so far). The jacket was good, as a light layer, when there was little to no rain. Why bother calling it a rain jacket? It is a wind shell. My suggestion: steer clear of the Marmot PreCip; you'll end up returning it.

by fromSoaked to the bone every time Even with expensive treatments I get soaked everytime I do a long hike in this jacket. I've very dissapointed and have ordered an REI event jacket in the hopes that it will be better.
