SPECIFICATIONS of the Marmot Women's PreCip Jacket
Needed a light weight rain jacket to take on camping trips, did a little searching and found this bad ass beauty. I LURVE it so much that I take it into the office now. Compacts to a small bunch of fabric at the bottom of my work backpack. Very helpful when running across town to meetings. The vents help keep you cool. The cut is very nice and true to size (aka you don't look like you are wearing a trash bag). Two Thumbs up.
This is the best rain jacket ever. I keep my bright yellow jacket in my horse trailer and use it when I'm horse camping and horseback riding. Living in Florida, it's not unusual for rain to be accompanied by humidity and heat, and the armpit zips are wonderful for keeping me cooler. If it's a cold rain, I can close it up and even put a light sweatshirt under it. A little pricey but worth it!
This jacket is awesome. Got it as a gift a couple years ago. I wear it fly fishing, backpacking, camping, or just around town. Tons of colors fo the ladies. It fits true to size. I can wear layers under it no problem and it still isn't baggy without them. I have no complaints! And that's saying something given how much precip we get here in the NW.
This is a great rain jacket. It kept me dry during some crazy African weather in the winter. I sized up so I could wear a sweater underneath and be comfortable and warm at the same time. There were even nights where I slept in it to add some warmth. I thought the jacket ran a bit on the small side. When I sized up, it didn't make me look frumpy at all and was definitely more roomy.

"This is a great coat for Boston weather and perfect for layering."
I ordered this coat in April and wore it non-stop for those warm but wet days. I plan to take it with me to the Berkshire this summer to weather the July and August rain storms, and then bring it back to Boston for the windy fall. It's light and perfect for humid sticky days, but can be worn over a sweatshirt or Patagonia better sweater (my favorite) for colder, biting days by the harbor or in the mountains. I got the bright green and love the color.
"Not a full review but a comment on sizing."
Just gave this to my girlfriend as a birthday gift. She likes the color and style but it was to big. She normally falls between a small or medium. Someone had mentioned in the reviews that this jacket runs small. I would have to disagree as the medium on her was to long in the waist and sleeves along with being to baggy. She is 5'7" and 135lbs.Hope this helps others when trying to decide on sizing. Returning the medium for a small.
This jacket will definitely keep you dry if you ever happen to find yourself in a torrential downpour. I used to have one in green before it got swiped but upgraded to eggshell recently. The green one seemed more flexible and less crunchy when I moved but they both serve the same purpose.
If you're looking for a jacket to survive the worst rain storms, this is the jacket for you. My first experience with this jacket, I had to pack up my entire camp site in the pouring down rain. Kept me completely dry, absolutely no complaints. Have used it several times since in bad rain and has never let me down. Is dry enough to keep your cell phone on the inside of the jacket and the rain won't touch it. I am 5'6", 120lb and ordered the XS; fits perfect.
