Giveaway: My Trail Company Chrome Umbrella

Gleefully taking shelter from evening drizzle under my MTC Chrome Umbrella while preparing dinner ingredients in the Indian Peaks Wilderness.

The My Trail Company Chrome Umbrella is an alternative to conventional rain gear. It’s lighter, more waterproof, and more comfortable in warmer temperatures. Wind, off-trail travel, and poorly maintained trails are a challenge for it, however. Read more pros & cons of backpacking umbrellas.

I am giving away one new Chrome Umbrella, which was given to me my MTC for this purpose.

    I used e to e have one of those umbrellas. They are great. Lost it on a long hike. They are essential hikes in rainy or hot climates.

    It doesn’t look like it would attach to a backpack, which would make it hands-free, and more useful.

      Yes, it can be attached hands free. There are a couple places where you can find info on that (e.g., Walking With Wired, Lady on a Rock). I have used mine hands on a Golite Pinnacle.
