Does anyone on the list use umbrellas when hiking here in the great Northwet? I'm starting a section hike on Tuesday (Snoqualmie to Mt. Hood), and considering the time of year I assume rain will fall during a large chunk of the hike. I found a lightweight, compact umbrella at a Fred Meyer store that's made by www.shedrain.com. In the website they have a model slightly different than the one I bought called the Hiker Featherweight Umbrella. I don't yet know the weights of either model, but the Hiker model comes with a more comfortable handle than the one from Fred Meyer. After my hike I will let you know how the umbrella worked, and by then I will have a weight comparison between the two different umbrellas.
I hope to see at least of few of you at the ALDHA-West Gathering on Sept 29. If you would like more info on the Gathering, go to http://gorp.com/nonprof/aldhaw/.
