It took me nearly a year to use the Mountain Laurel Designs eVENT Rain Mitts enough to give them a thorough testing. In the western United States, rain mitts spend more time in my pack than on my hands, but when I need them, I really need them. In other regions of the country, rainwear gets a more frequent and thorough workout, so performance is very important. The MLD eVENT Rain Mitt is a good choice in either situation. At only 1.1 ounces per pair (measured weight, size Large), they are wicked light, and a no-brainer to carry them in your pack as standard equipment.
