Thankfully, the summer monsoon season has begun in Colorado and Steamboat Springs is seeing a nice amount of afternoon showers. Now is not the time to head out for a climb, day hike, 14er, or backpack trip without the proper rain gear. I know it’s tough to think about rain in a drought year but if there is one way to make your outing miserable it’s getting soaked in a brief but potent monsoon.
You will be happy to pack the Marmot PreCip jacket with you. Some of the key features are: The PreCip weighs only 13.1 ounces • Offers a full visibility hood • 100% seam taped • Made with Marmot’s own proprietary PreCip Dry Touch waterproof/breathable fabric • Packs into its own pocket • Pit Zips for increased breathability.
The key to PreCip® is its barrier technology that allows small water vapor molecules to pass (breathability) but not the bigger liquid ones in (waterproofness). This keeps the rain out while letting your sweat vapor work its way outside, away from your body, to keep you dry from the inside as well as from the outside. PreCip® rainwear is compressible enough to stuff into a water bottle making it easy to pack into the smallest of daypacks.
The Ski Haus clothing buyers are always on the lookout for effective raingear that won’t cost our customers a ton of cash. Year after year they come back to the Marmot PreCip. For the dollars – we haven’t found a better value in rain jackets than this one. It is a perennial favorite at Ski Haus – especially when the afternoon thundershowers start to roll up the Divide!
The PreCip is made for men and women and comes in a variety of sizes and colors.
