PreCip jacket excellent for my purpose and budget

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Phil from Blue Ridge Mts.in Virginia on Monday, April 27, 2015
I wanted a light weight jacket to stop wind and rain and accommodate fall/spring insulating layers when needed. This jacket appears to do all I ask. I have had limited chance to wear it in rainy conditions but am satisfied with what I have experienced and the reports of other reviewers. I like the external zipper cover (which seems to be out of fashion these days) and the pit-zips. I am not as happy with the system to secure the folded hood but perhaps it will work better than I think. I am about a 44 chest and the extra-large size seems just right for me: not too large when not layering but accommodates layers when needed. Sierra Trading Post pricing and discounts were excellent.
