Better waterproof and breatheable features in the warm and humid area

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Eugene the traveller from Florida on Monday, July 4, 2016
Live in the Southern Florida area, I first bought Marmot PreCip jacket which gave me a very uncomfortable feeling during hot, humid with heavy rainy days, the inside of jacket sleeves got wet (either from rain water sipped in or my own sweet) adhere to my arms. I just received Marmot Optima Gore-Tex PacLite jacket jacket, with only once wore under the heavy rain condition so far it seems water proof and breathable ability are much better than the PreCip material. However, the Optima Gore-Tex PacLite jacket is a bit heavier than PreCip jacket and I also like the design of PreCip jacket to fold the rain hood into the collar. Also PreCip jacket material is softer.
