Hike In Comfort, With The Correct Clothing

While it may be tempting, and significantly less effort just to throw on whatever is in your wardrobe. Hitting the hiking trails in your everyday garb may in the end not be the smartest decision you’ve ever made.

Specific fabrics may be more prone to chafing making for an uncomfortable last couple of miles as you limp your way home. Others may just be downright dangerous in the wrong conditions (we’re looking at you cotton).

For many simple, short hikes what you wear may not matter too much, but having an understanding of the properties of various fabrics you’ll develop a sense of what to wear on a hike. In addition understanding, how to wear your clothes in layers should help protect you from the elements without overloading your backpack. In the end smarter clothing decisions can significantly improve the enjoyment of your hikes.
