Great Jacket....wish there were a 4.9 rating option!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Maine Hiker from Maine on Monday, April 7, 2014
I was looking for a lightweight, waterproof shell to layer over warm clothes to XC ski but then be able to wear in spring and fall as a windbreaker. I had ordered (and returned) two Columbia jackets that just didn't fit well. I had bitten the bullet and decided to order an expensive Hagloff jacket and placed the order. Unfortunately, UPS screwed up the delivery so I called Sierra to rearrange delivery. They were going to send out a brand new jacket express delivery at no expense to me, but in talking to the rep, he said that he loved his Marmot PreCip jacket and that it was a fraction of the price. I decided to order it instead and am so happy I did!

The jacket arrived. It fits perfectly and is roomy enough for a couple of really warm layers. It does not run small at all, but is sized for active movement...exactly what I wanted. I ordered the off white color, Cloud and it is really nice. So far, I have been very pleased with the performance. The only thing that I wish was different is that it is a noisy material and I don't like that. I hope that when it is washed, that will improve. It mainly is noticeable when you are putting it on or taking it off. It would have gotten a 5+ if the noise factor weren't an issue.
