We were lucky on our July cruise to Alaska. No rain but snow ! going over the pass into the Yukon territory.

The rain wear I posted can be purchased at most sporting goods stores for less than $25 and weighs less than 2 pounds. Dressing in layers is the best idea. A fleece or light jacket, pair of jeans, good walking shoes and a hat and you are good for the day. Wear a short or long sleeve shirt under the jacket, depending on the days temperature.
Remove and add as the weather requires and you are set up for just about anything short of glacier walking.

Thanks to RobRen for asking the question and to everyone for the great replies.
We leave for Alaska in three weeks and think we'll have everything we need based on the responses here. We have a base layer (long underwear), fleece, and waterproof pants and jackets (with hoods). That with the umbrella, gloves, and warm hats and I think we're good to go!
Layers, layers, layers...

Yes, thanks for the great ideas. We have waterproof jackets with hoods but no one in my family (especially my 16 year old son) will wear waterproof pants. I'm also bringing a pancho and my DH & DS have hats.
We're leaving for the airport in 12 hours!
