Well as most of u know ( if you've read any of my pots) I'm new to the hf. I'm new to backpacking and the only camping I've done has been camp ground car camping until recently. But I have to say, I've caught the bug. I can't get the woods off my mind. All I can think about is the next wilderness adventure. Now all that being said, I'm starting to accumulate some gear, and what I don't have I've been able to borrow from my good buddy Carolina Razorback. But to get to the nitty gritty of why I'm posting this.... I got no clothes! Well that's not exactly true. I have clothes, just not trail clothes. And to be honest, I don't even know where to start. I think I might have the top half figured out, but I'll tell you what inthink I know and all you hardcore hf hangers can correct my ignorance.
I think you start with a decent base layer. I got this covered. I bought a set of Columbia omni heat base layers, tops and bottoms. And on top of that you wear a light weight t shirt. Then a wind shirt or fleece jacket, or depending on the temps maybe both. Then over all that a rain jacket as an outer shell. How's that for a noob?
But when it comes to pants I have no idea what to put on over my base layer that's not gonna be too heavy. I know that wind pants and rain pants are a must, but what do you wear under that?
