Rain and similar liquids bead and roll off you like water off a duck’s back.

In addition to your skin, this protection extends to anything you are wearing or carrying. As a result, for example, you can walk outside during a downpour and remain dry. This effect also gives you a +1 circumstance bonus on saving throws against splash attacks, such as acid and flaming oil. Any damage from such attacks is reduced by 1 (but never can be less than 0).

This spell does not affect gooey liquids or those significantly thicker than water, such as grease. This spell also does not protect against immersion; wading through a puddle or falling into a lake still leaves the affected equipment and body parts soaked. In addition, this spell does not affect items that are already wet.
