This is essentially the Leadville with a hood. Not sure I really need the hood -- it won't fit over my climbing helmet and if I'm cold I'd wear a beanie. But, heck, I bought…

I've recently heard a quote "there's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing" - the PreCip Pant makes be believe it. I've worn them for a snow school practicing self-…

In the spring of 1974, The Marmott clothing company was fully implemented by three outdoor enthusiasts. But I'm jumping ahead of myself. Before that spring, two of the guys began making prototypes of down outdoor products right in their dorm room! They must not have been studying very much if they had all that time to make these awesome Marmot jackets including Marmot PreCip among all the other awesome Marmot products. Anyways, the ideas continued to grow and flourish in the minds of these two crazy kids and eventually they found a third partner in Colorado. That is when they officially formed Marmot, in the spring of 1974. I think I already said that.
Today, there are so many names of Marmot gear and Marmot clothing that I am sure you recognize. Ever hear of a jacket called the Marmot PreCip Jacket? This puppy is waterproof and breathable, keeping you dry, warm and comfortable even in the most abysmal conditions. I'm telling you, the Marmot PreCip is one heck of a Marmot jacket. There's also a great selection of Marmot women's and men's down Marmot jackets such as the Marmot Guides Down Sweater. These will keep you extra warm with their great down insulation.
Anywho, Marmot worked tirelessly to develop cutting edge fabrics to provide superior warmth and protection to those that used the Marmot sleeping bags, Marmot tents, and Marmot clothing. One day they stumbled upon a little thing called GORE-TEX. One of the three Marmot creators met Joe Tanner of W.L. Gore & Assoc., Inc. and was introduced to this new, highly innovative fabric. Marmot began experimenting with the fabric and incorporating it into many of their products including Marmot gloves, Marmot fleece and even Marmot pants. Eventually, GORE-TEX became a major component of Marmot.
Don't forget about the Marmot tents and Marmot sleeping bags. Both have excellent quality and protection properties. The Marmot sleeping bags are filled with down for extra warmth. You may want to check them out before your next adventure. I'm just saying.
With so many excellent products to choose from and innovative fabrics, it's no wonder Marmot is among the best in the outdoor clothing and gear world.
