Eighty degrees. The average daily temperature of the adventure.
When you are paddling miles a day, gathering and splitting firewood, and setting up camp in warm weather - you need a jacket to match the conditions. You need a waterproof jacket crafted from a ripstop nylon shell. There is also only so much space inside a pack; requiring you to carry the best and lightest gear possible. All of this is why I felt confident packing the Carhartt Acadia Jacket. What I'd call a feather weight jacket provided protection from the relentless rain and Northwest winds blowing across the lakes. Afternoons were equally as comfortable as the cool evenings.
I'm almost convinced that Carhartt provides a jacket for nearly every situation. This one may just cover multiple conditions all-in-one. Check out the color options over at Carhartt.
