The Trek’s brave leader, Zach Davis, is a big fan of the Versalite, having used it as his go-to rain jacket everywhere from the AT to the CDT, Wind River High Route, and beyond. It’s sufficiently waterproof at just 6.4 ounces. As Zach says, cutting weight at the expense of function is a bad idea, especially if you’re heading into cold and rainy environments, which is why hand pockets are non-negotiable for him. The Versalite is one of the lighter rain jackets that offer this feature.
