Excellent Fit, dry, warm body
The Precip Jacket has never let me down in a rain storm. It has kept me dry in the city, in the mountains, and in the English countryside, where the affinity for getting wet is much better testing ground then my home in SLC. I am 5'2 with broad shoulders for someone my size, but the small fits me well and comfortably. The cut is close to the body and figure flattering. I have also used the Precip during spring skiing, the pit zip ventilation is a huge plus, especially as many rain jackets don't have any ventilation. I also love the size and roominess of the hood. Many hoods are too tight/small and leave my neck feeling scrunched down to my shoulders, which is so uncomfortable I'd rather get wet than get put my hood up. However, the Precip has plenty of room for my neck and shoulders to relax comfortably and my head to move.
Don't Leave Home without It
The Precip is on my must have list for any winter run, any mountain hike, and for any long endurance race. I KNOW it will perform. I've tried other jackets, but still go back to the precip I find it to be the best balance between real waterproof protection and lightweight packability.. there are lighter jackets out there, but they are not waterproof. The precip will fold up easily and tie on the back of my pack, and it has performed well in warm summer downpours and sub-freezing winter outings in snow and hail and sleet. I am 5'2 and the medium size is not too big, but allows me to put this on over a hydration pack if I need to. the chin guard is not scratchy and the hood stays in place. For the price, you simply can't find a better lightweight rain jacket...
