What’s In My Bag – Rain Gear

Hi Everyone,

In this issue of What’s In My Bag, I talk about the two pieces of rain gear I always have with me when I go out to shoot photographs.

The weather in Arizona changes, especially in the monsoon season. The news never seems to get it right. It will say there is a 0% chance of rain, and we get a downpour for an hour or two. Or they say there’s a 90% chance of rain, and we get nothing. I think the monsoons are too unpredictable for the weather man or woman to figure out.

I would rather have rain gear, and not need it, then need it and not have it. I’ve experienced the latter several times, and I didn’t like it. And rain gear is so small and light, that there’s no reason not to always have it with you.

With a little creativity, rain gear can serve many functions.

  • If you get lost, a couple of cheap ponchos can be made into a tent.
  • A poncho can be used as a solar still to make drinking water.
  • If a strong, cold wind is blowing, a poncho can stop the wind from penetrating your cloths and keep you from getting hypothermia.
  • There are also several first aid situations where a poncho comes in handy.

I hope you enjoy this video
