The Marmot PreCip rain jacket – Waterproof, Lightweight

The Marmot PreCip Rain Jacket is a great affordable warm and waterproof jacket for every outdoor enthusiast to wear while hiking the rainy Cascades or running errands around town, as these jackets provide mobility, comfort, and coziness.

This design is more comfortable across the brow and equally stable at sealing out blowing rain. The wrist cuffs also seal nicely with adjustable Velcro tabs; a feature some folks consider mandatory in their rain jacket. The Precip Eco will keep your waist covered when reaching with your arms overhead. It beads water well, and the DWR proved durable during our months of testing. A quick wash and dry restored it nicely after a few months of testing.
