Re: [John Muir Trail] What's your Favorite Rain Jacket? and Favorite Down Jacket?
- I have a super light weight Montbell jaket and pants that worked great in light rain BUT down pours or even long lasting light rain got me soaked. The good news was I tried out very fast. I did re-water-proof the pair before heading out on JMT this summer, but they still did not hold up to one hour of rain and hail coming down from Mather Pass. I used the product recommended especially for the fabric.Linda

I'm looking at the Norrona rain jackets and Montbell down jackets for women, to replace my heavier units. Please share with me what you have found to be your favorite and most reliable rain and down jackets.
Always grateful for the input!
