Gear Review: Chrome Dome Trekking Umbrella


Harpo sporting her own shade , cruising south through the Cascades


I’ve reviewed the Chrome Dome at length before… Harpo and I are on our second thru hike, and our second set of brollies. I thought it appropriate to restate that the Chrome Dome is still one of my favorite pieces of gear. In the above tree line sections of the north Cascades, and through the burn areas and clear cuts further south, it’s hard to even count it as base weight, since it’s out so often as a sun shield. Although Go-Lite no longer makes the Chrom Dome, a similar version is available here.
