Perfect Oregon Coast jacket
I purchased this jacket for my husband. He is very particular about his rain gear, and this jacket has met his high standards. We live on the Oregon Coast, and good rain gear is essential. This jacket not only looks great, but is very functional for heavy rain and strong winds. We were also impressed by the great service and quick delivery from Altrec.

BEST LIGHTWEIGHT JACKET
First of all, it has the quality of all Marmot products. It is a very lightweight jacket, the fit is true to size, for example I use a Small size in everything and I got the Small and this one fits me very well, I could still use a fleece or a softshell base layer without sacrificing the range of motion in the arms. The breathability and durability are excellent, it is water resistant, not waterproof, because it is a very lightweight jacket, not designed to be a bombproof jacket. I bought this jacket because It has excellents features and it has his own stow pocket, it has a great packability, it is a very important point, I always take it wherever I am going. You could not go wrong with it.

Excellent Waterproof jacket
I had a Precip jacket for several years, but then lost it, so I bought a new one in Aug. 2011 to replace it. On the first day I wore the new jacket, I went to an outdoor event at which it started downpouring heavy rain. I stayed outside to see how the new jacket would work, and I was dry as a bone! The new model of the Precip seems to be much more waterproof than the prior model, and it does an excellent job of cutting the wind as well. For under $100, its hard to see how you could go wrong with this jacket. I use this as my regular jacket in the fall (as a windbreaker) and then use it for some of the wintertime with a soft shell underneath it. I also use this as a hard shell for climbing. Another nice feature of the jacket is that it has a hood that rolls up into the collar of the jacket, rather than just hanging off of the back. I strongly recommend this rain/wind jacket.
