WET & WINDy
You might want a warm hat for early-morning shoots, or to provide protection in strong winds. There’s no point in keeping your camera kit dry if you’re so wet and miserable you can’t concentrate. A waterproof jacket is essential for rainy conditions. This Páramo Velez Adventure Light Smock is waterproof and breathable in humid weather, and only weighs 575g. Some companies, such as Páramo (www.paramoclothing.com), design outdoor garments specifically with photographers in mind. They’re often worth paying a bit more for, as they’ll last you for years.
