Look for the "new," more breathable PreCip

Reviewed by Backpacker Joe from Baltimore on Thursday, August 21, 2014
Everyone loves the Precip and the new model (not this one) is supposed to be 43 percent more breathable than the last. I hope so because like most laminate waterproof jackets, I don't find this one breathable enough for strenuous exercise. It's perfect for walking around town and light hiking, but humid Mid-Atlantic summers? Keep those pit zips wide open! Look for some of the more technical fabrics for backpacking and other activities in truly wet and humid climes. Like Baltimore.
