by fromSoaked! I owned this jacket for one year, after I tore my trusty packable Gore-Tex raincoat.Despite what the jacket advertised, the "waterproof, breathable" material that the PreCip Jacket was made of retained a lot of heat and was not breathable either in hot or cold climates; I found myself sweating every time it rained.After about 8 months of wearing it on a regular basis, it no longer was waterproof. The fabric itself became saturated with water whenever it rained. I returned it after I got fed up with being soaked all the time. [...]I bought a new North Face Gore-Tex, and have been happy for well over a year and a half now; it is equally lightweight to the Marmot PreCip, breathable, and 100% waterproof.

by fromIt Works For A While The jacket is okay for short periods of rain when you first get it, but shortly after the coating begins to wear off, crack and peel, making it a heavy leaker . Marmot warranty will happily replace it, but so what.... you get another one that does the same thing! What a waste of resources. I can't believe people still buy these jackets. To each their own. Think about it .

by fromDoes not last, improved coating better? These jackets are very compact and light weight. Unfortunately they do not keep out water in heavy down pours, nor do they breath as well as some other products I have tried, but for breathable, and durable evidently you pay more. Biggest con is that the waterproof coating breaks down FAST. This happened within a dozen uses to my jacket, my wife's jacket and her precip pants. I'm sending them back under warranty, maybe just use the replacements for casual use around town... I hope the improved coating is better.

by fromNice jacket if you like being wet This is my second Marmot jacket. I returned the first one b/c the taped seams started to come apart but decided to stick with Marmot b/c I liked the fit. I will be returning this jacket as well. If I use it in even the slightest rain I am left feeling damp. If it were only while hiking I would chalk it up to sweat, but the jacket doesn't stop water even in city use. The fit is great. It's a stylish jacket and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes being wet.

by fromLow quality for this price I bought this hoping it would replace a similar North Face product that had worn out. The PreCip gets very low marks for water resistance. The hood seams on mine are either untaped or completely faulty, meaning that when it's worn in the rain, you get a wet head within minutes. Barely 6 months old and never worn with a backpack, it already gets fabric soak-throughs on the shoulder. Just returned damp from a 10-minute dog walk in medium rain. This is not a good jacket, and even for light recreational use, it feels clammy inside due to the lack of liner and plasticky finish.

by fromPoor Quality! My wife and I bought 2 of these jackets because they were so light and we needed something for the summer to keep in the backpack in case of rain. They are incredibly light and pack very tightly and are very affordable. First time we used them was in a moderate rain squawl (It does rain in the Pacific Northwest from time to time). Mine was OK but in a matter of minutes my wife was soaked to the skin...Fortunately we could seek shelter that day and we did, but often our hikes can last up to a week and getting soaked is a serious situation (hypothermia, etc.) Eventually the seams started to leak on mine but hers wasn't even remotely waterproof.No problems, take them back right?We only had the jackets a week after all...No, not so easy.[...]We only had them a week! Now we're out[$]and no jackets for the forseeable future and a kayak trip 1 week away! [...]

by fromExpensive wind breaker I was impressed by the many reviews (advertisements)that I read on this product. Unfortunately, I discovered first hand that it's nothing but a hyped-up wind breaker. It'll keep you dry in a light mist, but you'll get plenty wet if a moderate amount of rain falls. If you just need a wind breaker, go with something cheaper. If you want something that'll keep you dry, spend a little more to get something decent. This product is a waste of money.

by fromWorst rain gear ever This is the worst product I've bought at REI in the last 31 years. A plastic garbage bag would be more effective than this. Honesty. About half the rain beads up nicely, and the other half seems to just pass through. It doesn't seem useful for anything more than heavy fog. REI should really be ashamed for selling this. Perhaps as a windbreaker, but not as a "rain Precip" jacket. I was in deep mountains on a long day hike when it started raining and the air temperature dropped to the low 50's. I started out of the mountains and knew from experience that I'd fine with layered clothing and a waterproof shell, but was still two hours from anywhere when I realized my outmost layer was soaked. Because the jacket is windproof I made it out before hypothermia set in, but again, a plastic garbage bag would do that, and keep me dry.
