PreCip Jacket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Inexpensive shell jacket that does a decent job of blocking wind and rain. Durability is average. Breathability is better than average. Value is hard to beat. I'm 6 feet tall and 175 lbs with an athletic build. I purchased this jacket new to take on a year-long trip through South America. I used this jacket as my rain jacket, wind jacket, insect protection, and light insulating layer. After one year of demanding use this jacket held up slightly above average. The construction held up, but the DWR… Full review

PreCip Pant

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great for hiking, backpacking, any wet or chilly to cold weather. Summary - These are my go-to rain protection pants when hiking and backpacking. The full length leg zippers can not be overrated — adds ventilation when needed, easy to put on quickly in sudden downpour, and zippers do not leak in heavy rain. My Use - These pants have had a lot of wear on mountain backpacks in the Rockies and Sierras. Also great on day hikes in the rain when I want to be out for at least several hours and remain… Full review

PreCip Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Good mountain rain shell. Lightweight, with pit zips. Summary - This is my primary rain protection for spring/summer/fall backpacking and camping trips. It has held up well in a variety of conditions. Still have not found a jacket that breathes as well as advertised. My Use - This has kept me dry on downpours in the Rockies and Sierras. On chilly mornings and evenings, and some of them are downright cold, it holds the heat in from the insulating layers. Pit zips help in ventilating.  Folds up pretty… Full review

PreCip Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars Great waterproof rain pants! Lightweight and durable. Zippers and snaps on legs and an elastic drawstring at the ankles make this the best rain pant out there! I bought these last year to actually wear with a base layer and hiking pant to make a good snow pant and it worked great! The weather and activity on the mountain can change quickly so instead of snow pants I thought layering was the key, and I was right! I never even wore my Mammut snow pants that cost me a fortune this year. I just wore… Full review

PreCip Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars This is all the raincoat I need right now. Great on the trail and lightweight. Staying dry in Ohanapecosh! I love this jacket! I have looked at other rain jackets that are way more expensive and I just don't see a need for something that costs hundreds of dollars when this jacket meets all my needs at the moment. I have been caught out on the trail in the rain and this worked fine. I didn't get wet. Yes, it does get a little hot even with the under arm zipper vents, but it works great and I am going… Full review
