Re: HUH?
Not sure he's making some specific point, other than the jacket wasn't made for a bit, and now it's being made again. And it seems like a pretty nice jacket. Kinda simple, really.

Re: Best rain jacket for under $150?
I've got a Marmot rain jacket. Not really sure of which model - I think it's a bit too heavy to be a Precip (mine weighs about 16 oz). It's in great shape (no rips/tears/stains/etc), ha...
