Episode 7: Backpacking in the Rain – what you need to know

The thought of backpacking in the rain usually keeps most people home on a weekend. But on this episode, Scott and Ariane talk about the beauty and scents that only the wilderness can provide when it’s pouring outside. “The wilderness comes alive”

They discuss the difference between Breathable and Non-Breathable rain jackets, and how you can multi-purpose your rain gear. Are rain Poncho’s the best piece of rain gear?


Ariane loves to hike in the rain

“New people ask “what if it rains”?

Scott say’s “water is good, put your pot in the rain and collect rain water”

Chasing down your Poncho on the trail in a thunderstorm isn’t fun

If you are new to backpacking then this episode is a must.  This Podcast is from their NEW LIVE SHOW on the BackpackerTV Facebook Page. Starting next week every Thursday at 11:00 AM EST.
