Thumbs up Marmot PreCip jacket

Hey all.

I carry a packable rain jacket in my sling bag, until recently an Orvis SonicSeam packable.

The Orvis had a small manufacturer defect and since my local dealer was out of stock, they refunded my purchase, leaving me to find another jacket.

I ended up with a Marmot PreCip and have nothing but good things to say about it. My spouse has been using one for a year and now I know why she raves about it.

The Marmot PreCip jacket bests the Orvis in a number of areas.
  • it's lighter, and smaller when packed down into its own pocket;
  • the hood is better "sculpted" and offers better peripheral vision;
  • it has pit zips and mesh pockets for ventilation which the Orvis doesn't;
  • it's about 1/3 less costly, and;
  • it's available in many colours.

Material seems very similar to the Orvis jacket with the same type of lamination on the inner surface but a bit lighter weight.

I've posted a review on Amazon and linked a few of the photos below.

An amusing coincidence: the "Steel/Cinder" colour option I chose is an almost perfect match for the Patagonia Stealth Atom sling bag; they look like a matched set.

Nice review, I own the Marmot Aegis rain jacket which is a similar to the Precip. I agree with everything you stated, Marmot makes nice shells and the portability is outstanding. Despite the thin material, they are quite robust and can sustain some hard use (crawling / thrashing through heavy brush)
Unfortunately mine is bright blue...so clashes with the color of my Atom sling pack
