A color stand-out

Marmot PreCip jackets are wonderful quality, and purchasing them on Sierra Trading makes them a great deal. Unfortunately, most of the colors are shockingly bright. I had to return mine because as much as I loved it-- wonderful flattering fit, breathable, soft-- it was just way too bright for my needs. I ordered it in Skyline blue, and it is really electric. I wanted a jacket that I can travel with and wear casually as an outer layer as well as for hiking. For me, this color would have been fine for outdoor sports and backpacking, but not for more town-touring activities. The fit is very nice-- it tapers in at the waist a bit, which is a welcome change from the boxier style of so many brands. I wear a size Medium (6-8), and I felt the jacket was true to size-- proportions were good, and there was space for a fleece underneath, though it was also okay loose over a t-shirt. The sleeves were a little long, but by cinching them with the tabs, they was fine for me.
