Ultralight weight outer shell!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by NutmegsMom from Michigan on Saturday, December 19, 2015
This was my first Sierra Trading Post purchase and my first Marmot purchase after much research on the manufacturer website and a few reviews I've read in this jacket. I bought this to wear over my merino wool hooded hunting jacket. Though it's not audibly stealthy it performs well in blocking wind and the light rain in which I've field tested it. Bone dry and no wind. I bought this in black and XL to cover my hunting jacket and it fits perfectly! The arm length is fine; the hood stays on (no high wind experience yet) the underarm zippered vents are efficient in temperature regulation after rucking the first mile, and it is so very light weight that I am not tired at all from wearing it. This jacket has allowed me to changeover from my heavy wool coats to a 320 weight merino wool jacket that is extremely light along with the PreCip shell jacket. Great zipper though a dual pull would be nice, and the Velcro on the rain guard over the zipper is well constructed; it lays well and the minimal Velcro doesn't attach itself to my wool jacket as I thought it might. I like the white interior; no more putting on jackets inside out when in a hurry. Fast shipping and extremely minimal packaging which I appreciate. Thanks, Sierra Trading Post!
