Don’t call it a raincoat. While the PreCip is waterproof for rain, it’s so much more. A waterproof/breathable membrane in the fabric keeps the elements out and lets the body breathe. Taped seams, zipper flaps, and a hood make this jacket a veritable coat of armor outside through a huge swing of temps. Wind, snow, and, yes, downpouring rain, are kept easily at bay in the PreCip.
