So you have your backpack packed, the tent is set up, the knife is sharpened, and your hat is on. You’re ready to take on the great outdoors! That is unless you forgot something important: what to wear.
Being dressed for an outdoor excursion can be just as important as being prepared for one. A good set of clothes makes all the difference between a nice outing and a disaster. Here are some things to consider packing when heading out into mother nature to make sure you stay comfortable no matter what the weather throws your way.
Do wear jogging pants/trousers
The pants need to be stretchy enough that they let you move around and climb without restricting movement. They also need to be weather resistant to keep out rain or snow while keeping your leg muscles warm.
It should be lightweight, breathable, durable, and will protect you from the sun. You want something that makes you feel comfortable even when the weather is unpredictable.
It will protect your feet from blisters, keep your ankles from twisting on uneven terrain, and give you a solid base of support as you take in all the sights along the way.
These items are a good start to get you through whatever Mother Nature has in store for you.
