Extreme Layering: Rainy-Weather Clothing

Don't let a crappy forecast keep you home for the weekend. Just pack this deluge-tested system.

HAT

Mountain Hardwear Stimulus
In extended rain, hoods can be restrictive and isolating (since your hearing is muffled). This full-coverage sombrero is like wearing an umbrella. Made from a proprietary waterproof/breathable fabric and with a wicking Coolmax band, the Stimulus is breathable enough to double as a sun hat yet waterproof enough to use as a drinking bowl for your dog. $35; unisex M-XL; 2 oz. (M); mountainhardwear.com. Reader service #116
