Marmot PreCip

The leading jacket on the budget-friendly market is the lightweight and ecological Marmot PreCip Jacket. No wonder – the price tag is below $100, water-resistance is on point, and basic features are included. All of this calls for high ratings from those living a healthy lifestyle while biking, hiking and backpacking. You’ll love it too – there’s no way you wouldn’t.

Being constantly updated, this waterproof jacket keeps getting better and, as a result, more popular among backpackers as much as everyday wearers. It offers every single feature you would ever need in a jacket of this kind in addition to supporting the green movement. A jacket that protects you from heavy rainfalls while also contributing to their existence with leaving no waste? Sounds like a win-win scenario.
