Wet-weather gear stormtroopers were armed with E-11 medium blaster rifles, and some were equipped or customized their armor with bandoliers. They wore waterproof capes, known as slicks which were necessary for wading through the swamplands of Mimban during the Mimban Campaign waged by the Galactic Empire roughly ten years before the Battle of Yavin.
