Question for PNW boarders
Attention all PNW boarders (specifically Washingtonians and Oregonians where the temps are warmer and the snow is wetter) gotta question for you all:
What water proof rating do you wear?
You can also post here in answer to a second question: what water proofing do you wear and how do you like its performance in our wet conditions?
I ask because I used a 5K last year without knowing jack about waterproofing all year going to Snoqualmie (45 min from Seattle) and Stevens pass (90 min from Seattle), and it performed great. However, I also went <10 times so I encountered only a small sample of all the (potentially wet) conditions presented to us in the pacific northwest. I am planning on going up many more times this year and am considering getting a jacket with upped waterproofing. So, do you all think I need higher than 5K to do all right here in rainy Seattle?
