    Marmot precip rocks. It is light; repels water efficiently, ALWAYS stays with me. I wear it over a base layer upper, and have no fears. I go nowhere outdoors without it. Just sayin'.

    I know it is late, and im pretty drunk 'nshit but think of this, back in thr day I dropped like 4 bills o. A simms g3 wading jacket, it still works after 7 years. Now you may get a few seasons out of it, or you may end uo returning to cabelas every other month replacing the bitch. Me I'd rather drop the 5 bills on the slick jacket knowing that this thjng was designed by hardcore pnw steelhead junkies and get a decades worth of use out of her. Fishing gear ain't like girkfriends, you shouldn't be uograding to the newer model every other year. Jis typin.
