Review by Troy on Dec. 14, 2007
This is pretty much a precip jacket on steroids. Its got a better, more breathable material, and better ventilation. The zip off hood and driclime material in the cuffs is a nice touch that the precip is lacking. Great waterproof/breathable jacket that won't break the bank.
Precip material is still a waterproof coating, so its not going to be as durable as Marmot's membrane laminate or Goretex.
For something a little lighter, and with Gore's pac-lite waterproofing (but more expensive) Look to the minima by Marmot.

Durable jacket, heavier so its great for winter and colder months, can double as a light jacket by itself, Great water repellencey
Little pricier but still cheaper than gore-tex

Great features and cut, the material they use doesn't make you feel clammy on a warm rainy day (a big plus in my book!) Pit zips are huge, hood stores in the collar without being obtrusive. No problems with waterproofing or beathability (both excellent).
The hood is a tad shallow, not enough to bother me though (it might bother some people).
Precip is a less expensive alternative, Essence is lighter.
