Does the job but ...
For the money, the Precip does the job but it's the kind of jacket you keep in your trunk as an emergency piece or in a golf bag or in your boat etc. You get the picture. Yes it will keep you relatively dry from the elements but you're going to be soaked from the condensation. It doesn't breath very well. Bottom line is if you want rain gear that will work during any kind of physical activity ... spend the money and get Gortex or perhaps some of the higher end DWR finishes offered by top brands like Marmot, Mountain Hardware, The North Face ETC. You get what you pay for when it comes to rain gear.
