We’re several days into our 3 week road trip and a few days ago we made it to one of my favorite National Parks: Badlands. It’s in South Dakota and the winds are almost always high in the area. When we were there it was sustained at about 40mph and gusts up to 70. It was hard to even open the door of the car. I was really glad to have brought along this jacket from Topo Designs, and although I brought it for rain it helped a lot in the wind! I also packed this daypack for our short little hikes, as well as packing other stuff for our driving to hotel to driving breaks. It was a perfect lightweight material with just the right amount of pockets to keep things organized.
