Beginning Hiking Techniques : How To Layer Summer Hiking Clothes


Hi! This is Chris and on behalf of expertvillage.com
in this clip we are going to talk about summer time clothing for basic hiking. Hiking you
want to stay very comfortable and in the summer when it is hot you still need to have some
layers depending on how far, and how long you tend to being out. Your basic layer a
undershirt should be a spandex style shirt that stretches, it gives you a lot of mobility
wisp the perspiration off of your body as well. With a pair of pants you want to have
on a light wind break type of pants and I highly recommend that you buy the style that
you could go ahead and zip off into shorts as well for the summer time because in the
evenings in may end up getting cold and you want to put those legs back on. Now included
in the summer time along with your standard equipment of shoes your regular other things
I highly recommend bringing a windbreaker as well in your backpack. Often times wind
storms, rain storms, things like that do creep up on you when you are in the field and you
may want that anyway. It is also a good emergency wind break in the evening in case you do get
lost. Hats are very important as well for summertime a regular baseball cap like mine
works very well to keep the sun from your eyes. But as well I highly recommend a brim
hat for especially anything for in the desert climates. When wearing a brim hat it protects
you not only from the sun but wind, sand, and brush it is a nice way to put your head
through the brush so you don’t get scratched. So hats I highly recommend in both winter
and summer. The summer time hats are attend mostly to keep the sun from your eyes. In
keeping with safety once again even on a basic day hike I do take some elements of clothing
encase I am lost of stranded for any reason. Always keep a warm hat even in the summertime.
At night it works as a nice cushion on your head as you are sleeping and also keeps that
good body warmth inside. Gloves recommend highly as well even in the summer time encase
you are stranded. This would keep that body heat in and keep you safe all night.
