The Tumalo line is GoLite's most affordable WPB rain gear, yet only gives up a little weight on their top-of-the-line offerings. Using Pertex's newest 2.5 material, Shield DS, it tries for a balance of breathability and good water protection. Upping the ante for interior moisture control it uses pit-zips and mesh pockets for further venting options.
