“Does this version of the Marmot PreCip Jacket use the NanoPro fabric?”

  • Unfortunately the jacket is at my Seattle Washington home. I did wear it hiking in the rain and did not get wet. Unsure how a version is determined because most products change names when technology is changed. Found this on the internet. Also bought the sea breeze.

  • I don't know if this jacket is NanoPro fabric. It does not show that name anywhere on the jacket. What I can tell you that it is totally waterproof. I wore the jacket during our Alaska vacation. I fell into an Alaskan River (was quickly 'rescued' by guide), I took off the jacket, hung it on a branch next to me and it dried in minutes while I continued fishing. I wear it a lot for our mild, rainy days here in the NW.

  • I'm inclined to think that it does not though it is a bit confusing. When you go to the Marmot website, the Women's PreCip jacket is on the pages made from NanoPro material. That said, NanoPro is not mentioned on these jacket tags. They say "PreCip Dry Technology" and must be an older (but same style) version. NanoPro material was introduced in the Spring of 2014 and STP is selling these as "closeouts". Truthfully at $56 per jacket, they're still water repellant, stylish, and a great value. If your really need waterproof, go GoreTex and pay 3x as much...

  • The words "nano pro" do not appear on any of the tags that describe the Dry Touch technology, waterproof, breathable material. It refers to its proprietary PreCip coating technology. That is the best I can offer.

  • I cannot find anything on the jacket that indicates the nanopro fabric. It is a nylon polyester blend that is completely waterproof. I find it very comfortable to wear. Hope this helps
