Backpacking Rain Gear : Backpacking Rain Gear: Jackets


When you’re backpacking one of the most important
things is to remember to try to keep dry because if you get cold and wet, it’s much, much more
difficult to get warm so one of the most important things is to look at rain gear. No matter
where you’re going, what time of the year, it’s really important to bring at least a
rain jacket. There’s lots of different types of rain jackets you can get. A lot of them
have like created a new kind of material that’s both a breathable and waterproof so that’s
actually helpful because a lot of the rain jackets like the cheaper ones, it feels like
you’re wearing like a plastic bag around you, it’s sweaty and really, really gross. Important,
make sure that your jacket has a hood. I know that it may sound silly but some of them don’t
and if you’re out there and you’re backpacking and it’s raining like crazy and there’s water
just pouring in the top of your jacket, you’re going to be cold and you’re going to be wet.
Also it helps if your rain jacket has a draw string on the bottom cause it can be windy
and so if your rain jacket is flying up in the air and there’s water coming at you, you’re
going to be cold and wet so make sure that you have a drawstring around the bottom, make
sure that you have a hood, make sure you get some waterproof with rain gear.

  1. Unless you are able to go backpacking NAKED.
    When it's not raining I'll wear sneakers with socks and whatever else is necessary to stay warm and appropriately dressed.
    When it is raining I'll quickly take off everything and continue on wearing nothing but a pair of sandals so that the only clothing that I'm wearing that gets wet is what I'm wearing on my feet.

    This way I keep the rest of my clothing from getting wet at all.

  2. Then after the rain stops I can stay naked until the natural environment dries my body enough that I can put my dry clothes back on.
