I recently discovered sectionhiker.com/

There's a wealth I info in there that will help on anyone's hiking endeavors. I'd look into "wetting through" before you pull the trigger on something really expensive.

I often don't bring a shell for summer AT hiking because if it. The shell I do have is the Patagonia torentshell pull over. I like it a great deal and almost bought a second when I thought I'd lost it. You can get one too for 70 or so dollars.

I was pretty bummed when they didn't greenlight my "Bourne Identity" style reboot of The Eiger Sanction. This was from the rough draft's first act.
I have the Alpha SV, if you're going for a "bombproof" jacket, that's the definition of one. But honestly, it's pretty overkill, I find myself wearing my soft shell jacket instead most of the time.

Ponchos are okay as long as the wind isn't blowing. At that point, they're about as useful as a big, wide skirt (remember that iconic pic of Marilyn Monroe?). I carried them a few times, thinking I'd use one as a tarp. Never happened, probably since I had a tent with a floor. Just my experience.
