Rain Gear Call to Action

Before heading off on my South American Adventure (yes, that was over 5 months ago) I purchased a simple raincoat in Florida because it was on sale and I had packed nothing like it. It has now been in the rainfly compartment of my pack for past 5 months and never used (neither has the rainfly on my bag). Today with the rainy weather I remember that it was still packed in the bag so it has emerged and will face its first test today.

The coat has been in 13 countries so far including the one I purchased it in and this is its first taste of the elements.
