Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very lightweight and rainproof! This jacket is so lightweight I could stuff it easily into the side pocket of my pack. I chose a large size to accommodate a down sweater for cool rainy days. I used the jacket on my recent trek on the Tour du Mont Blanc and was most happy with its performance in the rain and wind. The jacket has only one chest pocket and I did miss having pockets for my hands and mittens. No pit zips, but the jacket has armhole vents that seemed to work fairly well. The jacket was expensive, but it looks good and worked efficiently. I am hoping Marmot comes out with rain pants in the same material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Jacket I got this a few weeks ago and have had the chance to use it in the rain a few times. The waterproofing works well and it is also very breathable as it claims. I think the armpit mesh vents work well at keeping air moving through the jacket. I haven't been in any heavy downpours but I think it'll hold up. I've rode it biking on windy days and it works well as a wind breaker. The material is really thin and seems like it could tear easily but I've found it to be really durable thus far. I haven't done anything too extreme in it though so it remains to be seen if it'll hold up to more adventurous activities. I'm planning on using it for a 7 day backpacking trip and it is really light and compact so I think it'll be perfect. I got the minty green color and I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wish Marmot didn't discontinue Sea Glass! Extremely lightweight jacket. Upon first wear, it felt weird like I wasn't wearing anything because it's light. Waterproof. Can't attest to how breathable it is exactly because I've been wearing a wool jacket (Chrome) or a heattech shirt (Uniqlo) inside. I tried on the PreCip jacket at a store to make sure I picked the right size. The PreCip jacket has a looser fit (regular) so I was worried Essence in small would be a bit tight (athletic fit). But it's totally fine. Even after I wear my Chrome jacket inside it's not tight and still looks great/slim-fitting. Kind of wish it had at least one hand pocket, instead of this breast pocket that if I put my phone in it, would look really weird. I like that the hood this velcro strap in the back so you can adjust it. I also decided on this jacket thanks to the recommendation by Backpacker mag. I should have bought the jacket right after I read that issue, when Marmot still had Sea Glass in stock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really light but good in the rain so far! I like the jacket material and design. The sleeves are long which is nice except that the cuff is very loose and the elastic is worthless so it hangs too long over my hand. I would like a tighter cuff, maybe adjustable but I realize that would make it heavier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the trifecta I bought this based of the Backpacker recommendation. Took it on my first ever hike and - it rained! I was dry and comfortable as could be. So light it feels like it will tear at any second but seems pretty durable. Can't wait to take it on more adventures.
