Why We Like It

Finding the right rain jacket can be tricky. Finding one that packs down, breaths well, and lasts more than a few season is even trickier. Fortunately, Marmot has found the sweet spot with the PreCip. This the jacket is lightweight and compressible with a generous feature set. Pit zips, a well-designed and packable hood, and Marmot's proprietary waterproof coating work together to keep you comfortable in most rainy conditions.

Tip: For a lighter-weight alternative check out the Outdoor Research Helium II. Consider ordering a size up as the trim fit makes layering a bit tricky.
