More Travel Gear I Recommend

First I want to congratulate luckysunset for winning the Mountainsmith camera bag. Luckysunset, whose name was picked at random from the many comments left on my blog post on December 10th, will be receiving the camera bag shortly.
Over the years, I've purchased many supposed waterproof jackets that never seemed to really do the job. And, when they did, they were bulky, hot and didn't pack well. So, when I need to stay dry, I wear a Mountain Hardwear jacket. I like the bold lime color which stands out well in forest -- no mistaking me for an elk. (Though they've got other functional waterproof jackets in more mundane colors.) Plus, it's got plenty of zippers for ventilation, it's lightweight and packs reasonably small in my carry-on luggage. And, of course, when I'm bicycling or hiking in a drenching storm, Mountain Hardwear keeps the rain out.
