If you are tired of the fuss of putting on and taking off rain pants, try a rain skirt. They simply wrap around whatever you are already wearing and snap at the waist, with extra snaps down the side if it is windy. They weigh the same or less as rain pants, and are just as easy to take off when a quick storm passes by. Plus, instead of sweating from the inside out and getting soaked when trying to stay dry, the skirts have natural air flow from the bottom.They work great! Hiking skirts and rain skirts rule!
