    Saturday. Set up a half-shelter and tried some early whitefish fishing. No bites and too much of a hassle to move (rain). Nothing beats sitting relatively dry and watching it beat down around you.

      There was a post about using umbrellas while hiking for this very reason and the negativity was palpable. PrepHole doesn’t understand the ASMR of raindrops against fabric or the coziness of being in a tiny little dry spot.

          Californians. They can’t fathom rain outside of winter, so anything other than a rain jacket doesn’t make any sense to them. Also notice any naysayer is theory crafting; they never speak from experience, only false assumptions.

          Umbrellas now are exactly where hammocks were ten years ago and where internal frames and lightweight packs were 20 years ago. Just like those examples, umbrellas have been around for a while but we’re always super rare. Now they’re catching on, and some people just hate anything that’s popular (or becoming popular). “Everything popular is bad” is a PrepHole trait though.

          I was right about it maternal frame packs in 2000 when I attempted the AT, I was right about hammocks when I switched to one about 15 years ago, and I’m right about umbrellas which I’ve been using one since the early 2000’s when GoLite released the original Chrome Dome. All of these things are dependent on particular use cases, but anyone writing them off completely really is a homosexual.

            Because in other parts of the country it can rain any time of the year, not just Winter. I know you think California is great and all but not everyone lives there.

            That's bullshit, most "Californians" are transplants/immigrants from places where it does rain all year and everybody's got at least one umbrella around, usually in their car/truck. If anything I think the seasonal and sparse rain makes umbrellas more practical anyway since they're so much cheaper than a good rain jacket and people are much less likely to need to spend extended periods outside with their hands free in the rain.

            If anything I think rain jackets make way more sense in other climates anyway, the main advantages of modern rain shells is that they're waterproof while being thin and well-ventilated, and that they pack up really small so you can keep them handy for unexpected rain, and neither of those is really a concern in CA's climate. I'm an LA native but never even owned one until I moved away, I just used heavier waterproof jackets (ski jacket etc.) since rain always meant cool weather there.

              Most hiking in California is found at higher elevations, where rapid, unpredictable weather changes are very common. It’s also much colder at elevation, and there is a seasonal rain pattern (lots of rain when it’s cool, very little in the summer).

              The high temps this time of year in North Carolina are in the mid 60’s, and some spots will break 70. It’s already too warm for a jacket and will remain so until October. In a few months a rain jacket will be an absolutely ridiculous option, especially when you get further south.

                It sounds like you haven't really used a good, appropriate rain jacket for your conditions. I've used my ultralight Marmot one in full-on tropical summer conditions (Southern Japan), including in an actual typhoon, and it worked very well there because it was so thin, breathable, and had huge ventilation ports - and that's coming from a California native who has horrible tolerance for humidity regardless of what I'm wearing.

                Also, California is far from the only part of the country that lacks hot wet summer conditions, that's true of just about everywhere west of the Rockies and some places east of them, if anything it's probably a much smaller slice of the country that has the kind of conditions you're talking about.

                Also this specifically shows that you've never used a real rain shell, this is the low end of the temperature range they're meant for. They're thinner and less insulating than a longsleeve shirt and if you need more warmth you close up the vents and wear an insulating layer underneath.

                One thing I will say is that hoods suck in warmer conditions, but you can solve that pretty easily by leaving the hood rolled up and wearing a waterproof hat instead.

                Jesus tap dancing Christ, you homosexuals are so fricking incredibly wrong it’s laughable. Holy fricking shit.
                >I didn’t sweat wearing a fricking JACKET during a tropical summer
                Black person the only choices in those conditions are either an umbrella, a poncho (maybe), or just say frick it and get wet.
                >you’ve never used a real shell
                Just tell me what I should be using so I can laugh at you.

                I have an old Marmot PreCip. It's more like a waterproof shirt than an actual jacket because it's so thin and it has zippers that go almost from the elbow to the waist so it's really ventilated when opened. Obviously you're gonna sweat in it during a tropical summer but no more than you sweat without it when it's 100 degrees and 99% humidity and not raining.

                Now you’re wet anyway but hotter than you would have been otherwise.

        Probably because most umbrellagays autistically deny that umbrellas are affected by wind in one sentence and say shit like "you can catch wind with it" in the next

          gay here. I understand you wouldn't want the bulk for hikes (I'd take a tarp), but for fishing trips I'm already bringing a bunch of shit so who cares. It catches wind, but so does whatever you're casting out there. Great for fishing, poor for everything else I suppose. I've seen night fishermen string up a tarp in front but I think you should just bring a tent at that point.
