What about wind? True. No umbrella can withstand a strong wind. That said, we find that we’re able to use our umbrellas in all but the most foul weather conditions.
What about lightning? When in doubt, put the umbrella away. Or consider the Chrome Dome Trekking Umbrella from GoLite. It’s spendy, but it’s fashioned without metal.
Though we never suggest leaving your rain jacket at home, we do recommend the addition of a small, lightweight umbrella in your pack. Our guides swear by them. If nothing else, it can make a rainy day seem a little brighter.
