    Lost Lost Green Jacket

    Second day on the Camino Portugués and my jacket fell out of my backpack! It’s somewhere between Alpriate and Vila Franca de Xira. If you see it, please let me know and I’ll meet you. I’m on a year-long trip around the world and would like to avoid buying a new one. Marmot, olive green, XS

    This is not meant to start the rain jacket or poncho debate again, (I use a jacket). What I have reconsidered is the color, because in rain and fog pilgrims are less visible. I looked gallant, suave, overweight but cool in my black jacket but no one could see me. My new gear is safety yellow...

    Rainjacket/Packcover or Poncho in September

    We will be walking starting Aug. 31 st. Does anyone have a recommendation whether to use a jacket and packcover or a poncho that will cover our packs? It does not seem like there is as much rain in September as many other months. Thanks for your help.

    Cold on July mornings?

    Hi all! I'm walking the Camino Primitivo starting in early July, and I'm wondering if I can get away without a jacket (other than a lightweight rain jacket). I'd rather not carry one around, especially if I don't get much use out of it. I'm from North Carolina, but I feel like I'm pretty...

    Baggage weight

    I weighed my baggage and it is already more than 10% of my weight, that doesn't include yet the shampoo, soap, shoes, mobilephone and the charger. Since i will be taking my journey in the middle of August maybe it is not a good idea to take a fleece jacket. Is there an area along Camino Fances...
