The deal I've been waiting for. One is on the way. :) At that price it's like replacing my Precip top, which has seen it's better days, only I'm getting a better product for $60.

Is this thing as water "resistant" as the precip or more of "just a wind shirt?" I got the precip jacket last year on sale for 60.00 at an outfitter store and I love it.

The Precip is not waterproof, and is barely water resistant. The material soaks through in the rain.

My precips have seemed pretty waterproof to me. And they have been in some good down pours and steady rain.

Mine probably shed water when new, but I don't remember since it's several years old. But for the past couple of years at least, the fabric soaks through as soon as snow or rain starts to fall. I've applied water repellency stuff but it doesn't make a difference.

I'm thinking now that I may send the Windshirt back and order another Precip jacket, since the Windshirt doesn't have a hood. That is one of the best features of the Precip, the hood. It keeps the snow or rain from falling down your neck and back. With the Windshirt, even with a hat you'd get cold water running down your back, and that sucks.

The windshirt is used for layering. It isn't used for rain gear like the Precip or Frogg Toggs

If your PRecip leaks then you have a crappy one, are you sure it just isn't sweat??? Mine has never leaked but I always sweat in mine....the Driclime will hold up in misting or drizzle, but in rain, it isn't meant to be a rain jacket. It will keep you warm when wet, however.

Spray the DryClime with a DWR treatment and you'll notice quite a bit of difference in terms of it's ability to shed light rain.

I use this product:

But there are other similar products out there.

I recently bought an Outdoor Research windshirt through Steep and Cheap for $30.00. They sold out, but REI outlet has them for $50.00. It has a hood any only weights 3.5 ounces.
