Re: [pct-l] rain gear in summer

check out the new Lowe Triple Point Ceramic ultra lightweight cloting. I picked
up a jacket that weighs 11 ounces, half the weight of my gore-tex Marmot
Thunderlight. Yes, it has less features, but it works in the rain and has a
hood. They're cheap, to, compared to gore-tex. $99 for the jacket.
I still recommend a poncho, but we all have our biases. (You can't use a jacket
as a ground sheet under a tarp!)
Happy Hiking!
