RE: [pct-l] multifunctional rain gear
Where can we see this?
It's interesting to me that you suggest the poncho for a groundcloth.
I guess that still beats the heck out of the folks who advocate using
their poncho for a tent. They're stuck in camp any time it rains.
(It always rains in Oregon.) This is the closest to a 'functional'
use for raingear that I've encountered.
However, it still begs the question-- What do you do when it's raining?
Is the poncho raingear or a groundcloth? I have this image of you
ripping the groundcloth out from under your sleep pad and bag to avoid
getting wet in camp; or, taking your poncho on a day hike, but,
leaving your sleeping bag and pad attached to your pack under the tarp
for the day where they can't loft. In either case, unless you're
thru-hiking and therefore either on the trail or in your tent (no gray
area), this seems like the place I don't want a multifunctional unit.
What am I missing?
