Not only does PreCip® hold its own against water, but this highly effective weather-beating technology withstands harsh winds - with a 0 CFM (cubic feet per minute per square meter) rating. Our value-oriented Marmot PreCip® collection features a proprietary waterproof/breathable membrane and two highly technical coatings to keep you completely dry in wet conditions while never feeling clammy or restrictive. restrictive.
PreCip® is Marmot's proprietary PU (polyurethane) coating technology, specially engineered for unlined garments. It combines a hydrophobic and hydrophilic PU with our special Dry Touch Technology to create a very precisely controlled 2.5 layer coating system.
Dry Touch incorporates ceramic particles in the surface of the coating reducing condensation and the sticky clammy feel of most coatings.
The key to PreCip® is its barrier technology: a microporous polyurethane that is permeated with silicon dioxide particles. These particles create small, numerous, very consistent airways that keep the rain out while releasing body moisture to keep you dry inside and out.
PreCip® is not only waterproof, windproof, breathable and comfortable, but compressible enough to travel with you wherever the road leads.
