Patagonia Rain Shadow
For those of you who like to pack light, say goodbye to the black garbage bag with holes cut on the sides for sleeves, and hello to the Patagonia Rain Shadow Jacket. Available for men and women in basically every color you can find in a bag of Skittles and in a trench style for the ladies, this jacket is must-have if you plan encountering a hefty sum of rain... and shadows.
Lightweight and packable with features like those handy pocket handwarmers, watertight zippers, and a specially engineered interior lining, you're definitely getting superhero-level protection from H2O. Like, Spiderman even has one of these. No joke.
Match it up and snag a pair of Rain Shadow pants while you're at it. Also available for men and women, they're complete with durable water repellent (DWR) fabric and fully separating side zips with snap closures at the ankles and waistband, accommodating those of you who like to get creative when dressing and undressing your bottom half.
