by fromGreat idea but does not perform REI typically has top notch gear. Not so with this item. First jacket I had leaked in a moderate rain then did not breathe much. I re-waterproofed it according to instructions and lasted a month or two. Returned it to REI hoping to get a non-defective jacket. Second jacket has the same problems. Not waterproof and not breathable. I am not inclined to purchase another Marmot product.

by fromWorthless in real rain I used a Precip jacket at Philmont Ranch. In 15 minutes the jacket was completely wet and I was miserable. If you buy one of these you really need to test it. Try it in the shower. The fabric will quickly become wet and the inside will quickly become damp and you will get wet. Beware of manufacturer's claims.

by fromAbsolutely NOT Waterproof I am a fly fisherman looking for a lightweight and easily packable rain jacket. This seemed to fit the bill and Marmot is known for quality products. This jacket is everything I wanted except it is not waterproof. I wicks moisture wherever there is a crease or any sort of bend in the fabric.

by fromThe 2nd one is going back I will be returning my second Precpi jacket. I returned the first one beacuse after a couple of years of use it would wet-out as soon as it started raining (I think I spent more on cleaners than I did on the jacket). I'm returning the second one because every seam leaks like crazy. I wish it didn't have these problems because I liked the price, the fit, and the weight. Oh well.

by fromWaterproof but Not Breathable I really wanted to like this coat since it was my second one. I had never owned a so called "waterproof breathable" jacket before my first one. It worked great as a "rain" jacket and frankly my main need was the "waterproof" factor. On that front it is an excellent jacket. So if you are standing or sitting at a rain soaked football game then it's a great jacket.But as I began to use it in backpacking, hiking and biking, I realized that I might as well just not wear the jacket because I'd still get soaking wet from my own sweat. Since hope springs eternal, and I fell for the marketing tagline of the "New and Improved" version of this jacket and its claims of better "breath-ability", I purchased a 2nd jacket. Unfortunately, it doesn't breath with even the slightest physical exertion. I must therefore assume that "breathable" was the figment of marketing minds. But the eternal optimist in me sustained my quest for "breathable" and eventually I was rewarded when I discovered eVent (In a REI brand jacket)So, if you are looking for the dual function of waterproof AND breathable, then this is not the jacket for you-unless of course you're a "[...]" who never sweats.

by fromNothing Special It was an alright jacket at first, however after a few days of heavy rain the jacket didn't seem to keep water off, even later on after it had dried.

by fromWater-resistant only; not waterproof. Water-resistant during light rain & sprinkle. Not waterproof in real rain. Water came through the shoulders after 20-minutes in a light rain. This jacket is a nice looking wind-breaker. I am 6'2"; the extra-large fits fine with room for layers underneath.

by fromNot durable--coating peels off I bought one of these about three years ago. It worked fine initially, but the interior waterproof coating is now peeling off and it leaks like a sieve. My daughter had the same issue with hers.
