I took a wind shirt but no rain jacket on the PCT until Washington. I wouldn’t do it again. This day detailed below could have ended much different. A rain jacket even a very lightweight one makes a great addition to your pillow. I also have become a huge fan of lightweight wind pants. They were the only pants I took on a recent Lofoten Island traverse where the weather could have been really nasty in September. I have also become an umbrella toter as well. https://www.postholer.com/journal/Pa...ora-Pass/24131
