So if you need a self-packing rain jacket, I can recommend the Marmot Precip without a single reservation now.
    Does this mean that you no longer néed the information of what size Travel Stuff Sack to use with your Marmot Precip, and that we can retitle this thread to something like "Hidden Self-Packing features of the Marmot Precip, Ways to estimate which size Travel Stuff Sack is right for your jacket, and Have you thought of using your Travel Tray instead of a Packing Cube?"

    Thanks for the helpful summary. Glad you made this discovery -- and maybe you could supply the YouTube video link for others who may be wondering about this? @timothy Check your Marmot Precip for hidden pockets!

I bought mine after reading the review The Wirecutter did last year, which mentioned the pocket, and when I noticed mine didn't have one I emailed the author. He did a little research and got back to me to let me know that they don't make it that way anymore. Still love the jacket, though!

    Also, for reference if anyone comes across this later: my jacket's weight is 13 ounces, and was purchased from Sierra Trading Post. Got it on a nice discount, too!

    Thanks for the answer (and great pictures) @Hawaii! The jump between "perfect fit" for the size 2 TSS and size 3, which I knew would work, without knowing the details of the jacket, was enought to make me nervous. And I hadn't thought of using my UV Travel Tray as an alternative packing sack, but that also works for my Icebreaker Quantum Hoody, although it takes up less space in the size 2 Travel Stuff Sack.

    @Dandelion, the YSS volume is 1.5 liters, which is the same as that of the Side Effect, and just a bit less than the 1.6 liters of the size 2 Travel Stuff Sack (though I doubt people who own the Ballistic Nylon version of the Side Effect would try using it as a packing cube; the 400d Dyneema or Parapack SEs could be tried out this way, though.) I enjoyed the link to the Patagonia M10, by the way, since I'd been looking at their R1 regulator line that finally made it to their first women's version in 2013.

    Not sure if this will help but This jacket size small will fit into a small Yarn Stuff Sack with room to spare.

    I think you can go with the size 3. I bought that size for my Women's M Marmot Precip and it was way too big. In fact, I could fit two of these jackets in the size 3 with room to spare. I used a Sea to summit stuff sack (the large size in the 3-pack they sell at REI) instead because I did not have a size 2.



    There's even room to spare in the smaller bag.



    I can fit a men's size medium fleece hoody in the size 3.





    Still room to spare for maybe one pair of chonies.

    @adalangdon Yes, I can put the Icebreaker Quantum Hoodie ((Women's S) into a Size 2 Travel Stuff Sack, but I'm using a tight roll when I pack these. (Remember that I said I could pack it into my 400d Dyneema Side Effect, but it felt pretty stuffed. The Side Effect capacity is 1.5 liters and the Size 2 Travel Stuff Sack is 1.6 liters. This doesn't work well for Ballistic Nylon SEs). I think for larger sizes you might have to go to the Size 3 TSS which has 3 liter capacity.

    So for @acilento, I'd probably recommend the Size #3 TSS, which will fit items between 1.6 liters and 3.0 liters. The caveats are: I'm not familiar with the men's Marmot Precip he mentions and I don't have a Nightflight Travel Duffel, so @timothy's comments about size relative to the NFTD end pockets don't convey a direct answer to me. However, @kkintea's pictures of the NFTD indicate that the end pockets nicely fit a Clear Quarter Packing Cube, which has a volume of 2.7 liters. So guessing at the volume of NFTD end pockets as being around 3 liters, "about half" of that might be 1.5-1.8 liters, and most likely would require the size 3 TSS.

    The estimates of volume by garment weight are only approximate, but did seem to roughly work for the merino wool jerseys (my long sleeve Ibex Giro of 10.15 oz fit into an Eagle Creek Specter 2 Quarter Cube of 1.2 liter capacity, and your Ibex Shak Lite Hoody of 32.8 oz fit into a 3 liter size 3 TSS.

    Hopefully, someone who is both familiar with the garment and with TSS sizes can give a better answer than I can. BTW, the Quantum Hoody weights are approximate, since Icebreaker doesn't tend to give this information. Last year's men's Quantum Hoody was 14.1 oz (Icebreaker's reply to a direct question on their web site), but women's Quantum Hoody weights from previous years seem to range from 12.8 to 13.6 oz.

    HTH, moriond

    @acilento Could you possibly specify the weight of this jacket? If I look this up, for example, at Moosejaw, the entry says "Weight: 13.1 oz / 371.4 g" I wear a Women's small, and basically I could get an Icebreaker Quantum Hoody that is 13.4 oz into Size 2 travel stuff sack (I can actually just fit it into my Dyneema Side Effect, which is smaller). I can fit an Ibex long/sleeve Giro (Women's Small) 10.1 oz into an Eagle Creek Specter 2 Quarter Cube, that is even smaller -- 1.2 liter capacity and dimensions 7.5 x 4.5 x 2.5 in / 19 x 11 x 6 cm vs the Side Effect 1.5 liters and dimensions 8.6" x 5" x 2" / 220 x 130 x 50 mm. The size 2 travel stuff sack is even bigger: 6.3" tall x 5.2" x 3.5" / 160 x 130 x 90 mm and 1.6 liter capacity.

    Best guess is that it will fit in either a size 2 or size 3 travel Stuff Sack. For the record, @adalangdon's Ibex Women's Shak Lite Hoody is 32.80 oz from EVO's web site -- she uses a size #3 travel stuff sack 7.9" tall x 6.6" x 4.3" / 200 x 170 x 110 mm and 3 liters capacity.

    HTH. Since I'm not familiar with your garment or men's sizing, hope this provides some information by garment weight.
