Trailwalker Check 2: Precip-itation..

9650 869 7088
Marmot makes some of the better looking outdoor gear, including tents, jackets and sleeping bags. they are probably currently more famous for their sleeping bags, but i would rather talk about their rain jacket in preparation for the trailwalker. precipitation is a concern to us hiking on the slopes of the Maclehose trail. it can be 100kms of wetness or 100kms of hell. probably a bit of both, so to battle the precipitation that might occur, i have been using the Marmot PreCip. it is a rain shell that is light, packable and great value of the money (99.00 USD) it comes in many colors including yellow and orange, which i prefer for higher visibility. since i will be hiking through the night, it makes sense that i wear brighter colors. the hood is not retractible but that means it's far more waterproof than the foldable hoods. there are zippers on the armpits to cool off the humidity that may build up, there are pack packets that make accessing easier even in with a large pack on my back, and nice elastic drawstrings in all the right places to keep it tight. finally, the chin is protected from the zipper by a soft moisture wicking fabric. not bad not bad. i may actually hope it rains on that day so that i can try it out. on training day 1, the downpour was just insane. i've never witnessed such heavy rainfall in the northern hemisphere, but over here in Asia, it's a whole new world.
