Threatening rain

Waterproof outer clothing should be packed near the top of packs and put on before rain hits. If there are significant breaks between showers it is worthwhile removing waterproof gear to minimise condensation build up. In wet scrub the first person in line will usually become drenched. With a beginner group it is preferable that this be the leader, or the strongest group member. Overpants will help significantly in these conditions.
