Marmot PreCip Jacket for Backcountry Skiing


This post by WildSnow.com blogger  

Thanks goes to Blog reader Chet for correcting me about the fact that the Marmot Precip jacket blogged below does NOT use Goretex, but rather Marmot’s own proprietary waterproof/breathable coating.

According to Marmot: “PreCip Dry Touch Technology, Waterproof/Breathable Marmot’s proprietary PU coating technology specially engineered for unlined garments with excellent durability. A special layer next to the skin reduces condensation and the sticky clammy feel of most coatings.”

We can testify that indeed the Marmot coating DOES live up to their claims. It’s works super well, and the PreCip line of shells are light, affordable, and fit well. If you’re looking for lighter weight gear that costs less, highly recommended. We test this stuff in harsh conditions and only recommend things we use ourselves and like. While the PreCip appears at first glance to be more of a backpacker’s garment, with it’s weight and functionality it is an excellent choice for backcountry skiing.
