GOSSAMER GEAR Lightrek Hiking Chrome Umbrella - is an 190 gram full-size trekking umbrella that provides sun and rain protection on the trail. Bring it along instead of rain gear. Thru hikers tested and approved that the Lightrek Umbrella can feel up to 15 degrees cooler under its canopy. The Lightrek is easy to use with the hands-free clip attached to any backpack and keeps you comfortable during hot sunny days or keeps you dry in rainy weather throughout the hike. It extends far enough back that it mostly protects your pack as well.
The Lightrek umbrella has a UV protection factor of 50+, which can help you to reduce the amount of sunscreen you need to apply during the day, so you could carry less sunscreen and lighten your pack.
The sun and rain protection is well worth the extra little weight. Combined with the hands free clamp and you’ll be a happy hiker.
