the weather at the time was not bad  but the forcast for the day was rain.As we got towards whenside the rain came and as wgained height and went in to the low clouds the visibility  went down.So out cam the wet gear.I was using Army surplus Gortex pants and they did keep my legs dry.My jacket was from Cranetrail that kept me dry but I did sweat alot ant it just trapped the moisture inside so my top was soaked wiht sweat.so Im going to be looking for a better  base layer and a different Jacket
