Weather Comfort: Down Jackets, Wind/Rain Protection, Gloves

Last updated 2011-11-30 - Send Feedback
Related: clothing and footwear, health, weather

Because I often hike and photograph alone in the outdoors in remote areas, it’s essential to protect myself against calamity by taking adequate food and water, fire starting kit, my SPOT beacon, and appropriate clothing.

Most of the time, it’s about comfort, but clothing that protects against wind and rain and that keeps me warm might be just what’s needed after breaking a leg, or twisting an ankle deep in a canyon (an eventuality I’ve so far avoided). So I don’t mess around with mediocre gear, or bulky/heavy gear that I’d leave behind. Buy the best stuff, and it will both please, and last.

If you don’t take it, it doesn’t work

If something can’t be easily packed and carried, it gets left behind. There is no point in warm clothing that is too warm to wear, or too bulky to pack. I’ve looked long and hard for gear that is just right for what I do, and here I share some of it. I’m very, very picky about my choices.

Layering

Layering is key. A single heavy jacket is useless to me; I might switch between intense effort and standing still, like at the summit of Mt Dana; one heavy jacket can’t be taken off and packed, gets too hot and sweaty, etc. A much better solution is a wool jacket over a down jacket with a wind shell.
