It's never a good idea to get out in the hills and hope the weather behaves itself. Even the finest days can turn nasty and get a good soaking is at best a spoiler, at worst it can be life-threatening. Solution? Take a waterproof, and if you really want one that packs down small, weighs next to nothing (only 355 grams) and gives a superb performance you can't get better than the Mountain Equipment Men's Zeno Waterproof Jacket. The Drilite fabric married with YKK zips that boast both outer and inner storm flaps make a defiant barrier again the most driven rain. Movement is unrestricted thanks to the pre-shaped and articulated sleeves, in combination with an Alpine cut. Keeping the perspiration to a minimum even in a thunderstorm is easy, just open the pit zips and let your body breathe.
