Findings: Molehill consistently puts out a quality product. I haven’t ever been disappointed. So I took out the packable rain gear, I had high expectations. It rains a lot up here in Alaska, but not all the time, so I need rain gear that I can stash in small pockets of my pack. (Looking forward to the day when I just carry my own gear…) At the same time, I need rain gear that is going to perform under lots of heavy use like sliding on rocks, diving in mud etc. The packable rain gear line performs well in all areas. For hiking, backpacking, kayaking and even walks to the park, this is a great line of rain gear.
