Gossamer Gears Lightrek Hiking Umbrella is perfect to give sun protection as its reflective silver on the outside and opaque Black on the inside surface. Although ultralight its still a reasonable diameter at 95cm.

Gossamer Gear says: 

The world’s lightest full-size trekking umbrella now even lighter! Bring it along instead of rain gear. Just 6.6 it ounces keeps you out of the rain or the sun. The original Chrome Dome Umbrella. Thru hiker tested and approved it lowers the feel of the sun up to 15 degrees.

Our Verdict

Umbrellas definitely have their place in the trekking world, they are the most breathable of all waterproofs keeping you dry and comfortable, they are not so useful when the rain is horizontal or its very windy however. Also useful as sun protection, when high altitude trekking it can sometimes be virtually impossible to find shade, which is where a decent umbrella comes into its own.

Gossamer Gears Lightrek Hiking Umbrella is perfect to give sun protection as its reflective silver on the outside and opaque Black on the inside surface. Although ultralight its still a reasonable diameter at 95cm. Dan reckons he's had a Gossamer Gear umbrella in some pretty knarly conditions and it stood up well to wind and rain.
