Seasoned hikers know what it’s like start with a sunny day at the trailhead and walk into howling rain at the summit. Next time you venture out, grab the Ghost Anorak and shove everything you need in your pocket.
The Ghost Anorak from Mountain Hardware is a water and wind resistant ripstop nylon shell that weighs a feather-light 53g (women’s is 49g). It’s about the same weight as your average energy bar. The Anorak comes with its own pouch that when folded, literally fits in your pocket. Its size may be small, but its price tag is big — both the men’s and women’s version retails for a hefty $US135.
