Pogge, Drew

When the wind begins to wail and rain falls high on a climb, things can get miserable pretty quickly. Unfortunately, most jackets are too bulky to pack as “just in case” insurance on a loaded climbing harness—but not the Berghaus VapourLight. This jacket weighs just 85g (about the same as a small Hershey’s bar) and packs into a ball the size of a gala apple. I’ve carried it all summer and fall on the haul-loop of my harness, right next to my chalk bag, and it’s bailed me out a few times on cold, windy belay ledges. Its adjustable hood fits over my helmet snugly, and keeps me completely dry. It doesn’t breathe well, and it won’t stand up to a lot of abrasion, but it’ll be a permanent part of my trad climbing rack and mountain-biking kit from now on. $150; berghaus.com.
