Rain GearRain Gear

My rain gear serves not only as rain protection, but also as wind breakers and insulating layers. In cool weather they can be enough to keep you warm without insulation, and in cold weather they work very well with my winter insulation.

Weight in Ounces Item Description
8.1 ProVent Rain Jacket Cool jacket made from the same material as Frogg Toggs, but with a better fit and rain flap. A good rain jacket is essential.
3.5 Seal Skinz Socks Nice to keep the feet dry when light weight backpacking in running shoes, especially in cold weather. These are lined with GoreTex, but are also polyester knit, so they insulate like a normal pair of hiking socks.
1.2 OR rain mittens GoreTex rain mittens to keep your hands dry in cold weather. Keeping dry is 60% of staying warm. These are part of a layering system in colder weather.
5.3 ProVent Rain Pants Matching pants to the ProVent Jacket. Some hikers don't carry rain pants except in winter, but these are also my pants for doing laundry in, wind breakers on cool days, and a part of my layering system.
