Hello,

How well does the Osmo Pocket handle a little bit of rain/drizzle conditions? Will it remain functional after?

I wouldn't chance it personally.
The SD card slot is open, there are gaps where the gimbal motors rotate and no mention of any weather sealing as well as a warning not to get it wet in the manual. It may survive initially but water and Li-po batteries do not mix well and any internal moisture ingress will not be good for internal components. PC boards, in particular, are prone to delaminating in the presence of moisture unless they are glass fiber.
Maybe try an umbrella.

Hi, thanks for the inquiry. We would recommend using your Osmo Pocket in the recommended environment. Water or any liquid might damage the unit especially if the internal components would be involved. You may refer to our safety and guidelines for the Osmo Pocket. Thank you for your support.

Yes and no..  Last weekend I tried shooting a timelapse of a storm by setting the pocket on a covered balcony.. a little rain was blowing onto the osmo and I thought it was no big deal... and it wouldn't have been for just the osmo.. but I had the wifi adapter on it.  Drops hit the osmo and ran down into the wifi adapter and shorted out the usb connector...  I was lucky.. blowing the water out fixed it... but be ware... the wifi adapter is a water trap.

So Clearly DJI states not to expose it to water, but accidental exposure like light rain was what I was going after.. But looking through everyones experience I can see its better not to risk it.. Thanks everyone

I've used it in light rain for a few minutes at a time plenty of times with no problem. Just wipe it dry after.
