What to Wear Hiking In the autumn, you might be thinking what to wear hiking during the winter. Your normal underwear probably will not be any different to what you wear in summer. Short sleeve shirts. Socks. For more details follow this site. WATERPROOVE. Mid-calf length pants, preferably with a liner. Waterproof. SHORT Sleeve shirts, similar to what you would wear for beach wear in the fall. WELTERMING. Wear mid-calf length pants, with a liner. Waterproof. Also, when going for the cooler woods or beaches in the spring, wear long sleeve shirts and pants, so as to stay cool. For cooler cold weather, you can always wear a light jacket and sweatshirts, to keep you warm and dry. To know what to wear hiking follow the link. FLEE CYNDROME. Don't wear a fleece jacket in the snow. This is not only uncomfortable, but it also blocks your body heat from escaping, which means that you are even colder. The best way to deal with this situation is to put a sweatshirt on, to provide some warmth, but to leave your arms and hands free. RUSTY. It's probably the most popular choice for casual or warm hiking but don't wear long pants or rain jacket in rainy conditions. You will be much warmer without them. Layers. How do you layer your hiking clothes? Well, generally speaking, you want two layers in the winter, and one layer in the summer. Your base layer should be thick and protective, and it should be mixed with a lighter layering system such as a lightweight t-shirt or sweatshirt. You want the thick layer to protect you against the sun, and the lighter layer to help keep you warm. For day hikes in cold weather conditions, you may choose to just wear a thin sweater, with no other layering system. Wearing A SmartWool Merino 150 Base Layer. If you are planning a day hike, don't skip the smartwool Merino 150 base layer. This is highly-resistant, highly-labor-woven wool fabric. What's great about it is that it is an extremely comfortable top, as well as an extremely moisture-wicking one. There are many conditions where the Merino base layer is absolutely necessary, including the big climbs in the mountains, where lightweight synthetic shirts and pants simply won't do. Last but not least, make sure your Merino fleece shirt, sweatshirt, or jerseys (if you have one) stays away from your body during the day, and it's definitely worth taking a swimsuit (swimming fin sleeved, for example) or long pants if you really can't afford to take off your heavy outerwear. A fleece jersey and a pair of thermal socks will keep you warm no matter what type of weather conditions you find yourself in. And, don't forget your smartwool or thermal long Johns, a thermal fleece glove, and a thermal mitt. As for what to wear underneath your clothing, a good idea would be to layer several thin layers, preferably with at least two in the same color. When choosing what colors to layer, go with darker hues of the same material, such as oatmeal. For example, take a dark pair of grey wool trousers, a light grey sweater, a light grey vest, and a light grey mid layer outer shell. The lighter the color, the better. Another thing to take into consideration would be your choice in footwear. Boots are more suitable for cool weather; hiking boots are more suited for warmer weather. So, in general, wear thinner, lightweight shoes with thinner, lightweight socks. For shorts, opt for a thicker, breathable t-shirt with a thicker, breathable bottom. A great feature to look for when shopping for hiking boots would be waterproof gaiters. Waterproof gaiters are breathable enough to keep moisture out while keeping your feet dry and warm. This means no wet feet, no slipping, and no cold, clammy feet to irritate your already sore and itchy feet. Look for a pair that is water resistant up to a certain depth and in a size that will be most comfortable for you. This will also help keep your money in your pockets, because waterproof gaiters are usually priced higher than other styles. What to wear hiking is certainly an important question to answer. It will definitely depend on the season, the type of terrain, and many other factors. However, one thing that remains constant is the need to be prepared for any eventuality. This means being prepared in your boots, shirts, and other gear by packing enough extra items that will last for the duration of your hikes. Being prepared means you'll be happy with your outdoor adventures, and you'll feel less stressed when the day finally ends and the cold weather hits.
