How you prefer to deal with rain while walking in the Dolomites:
1. lightweight trench coat?
2. Cape = poncho?
3. a coat and pants?
4. an umbrella.
And what equipment exactly-wise donation price-weight?
Thanks for the watch!

A jacket and pants, poncho, ineffective in the mountains that wind you fly down the slope.

An umbrella-not at all.

What do you mean-weight equipment.?

In General what is easy and helpful.

I think if you're going to keep going, a raincoat or else be wet evaporates from the inside. Just coat doesn't fit.
Ditto about trousers + be combined with giiters. It mostly if rain or lasts for many hours.
I usually go with if not then very cold coat shorts (and ... Gets wet).

About umbrella, it sounds weird, but I've seen plenty of experienced travelers and serious hikers with an umbrella and it has many benefits (small, light, cheap and saves you all the equipment is very expensive storm and takes up a lot of space is relative). This is very common in Europe. Orotem 41430.688912037
