Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 170 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

Received my Greenland jacket today. Put it on the chase the dogs that got out. Obviously, I won't know for a few years how it is holding up, but here's what I can say: Sizing definitely runs a size large. I normally take a large and the medium is a good fit, trim enough to wear without layering, and large enough for a heavy sweater or fleece liner underneath. This is a shell only and can be worn by itself in milder weather, so if you want a jacket that's warm in colder weather without layering, the Greenland also comes in fleece lined and down versions. The proprietary G-1000 fabric is lightly infused with wax and should be water repellant, but would soak through in steady rain without more waxing. A major advantage of this jacket is that unlike some other waxed cloth jackets, it can be washed and rewaxed. The four outside pockets with snap flaps are big, even the breast pockets. The unlined hand warmer pockets are well positioned. The zipper is YKK brand, works smoothly and zips on the left, not on the right like most jackets marketed in the USA. It is made in Vietnam. None of the descriptions or reviews I have read mentioned the small inside zipper pocket that will just hold an iPhone 5. All closures are zipper or snap, no buttons to come off or hook and loop to stick to your knits. If you are looking for a well made, versatile shell with classic styling, the Greenland should have you covered.

The PreCip jacket is an excellent value and performs as advertised. Pay attention to the size chart. I ordered a large, my usual size in other jackets, and it was way too big. Returned it for a medium, which is a perfect trim fit but still large enough for layering. Went on a couple of kayaking trips in Florida and the Bahamas and wore the jacket as a shell to break the wind and repel the spray on cool March days. It kept me warm and dry. Light enough to pack or carry easily for travel and adventures.

Top hat for UV protection for beach and general use in warmer weather. Front of brim has a thin stiffener that I haven't seen mentioned in other reviews. It helps keep the brim from flexing in a breeze. Size runs very large. I normally take a medium and that's what I ordered. It was huge and I returned it for a small, which fits perfectly. Costs a little more than some other hats, but the quality is evident and this hat should stand up to hard use.
