Are you going on a mountain expedition or just for a stroll around the city? Take care of comfortable clothing designed specifically for outdoor activities. After all, properly chosen outdoor clothing affects your comfort and safety during the journey.
During the trip, you'll need to change depending on the situation. Typically, hikers use the following sets of clothing:
- Trekking Clothing (Walking Clothing): these are the clothes you move in throughout the day.
- Insulated Clothing: warm clothes that are additionally worn during breaks or camping.
- Sleepwear: a set of clothing to change into for the night.
Most of the time during hikes is spent in active motion, specifically in trekking clothing. Therefore, it's crucial that it is of high quality, functional, and suits you.
Types of Trekking Clothing:
1. Base Layer:
Active: For running, intensive walking, summer, and the transitional seasons; made from synthetic materials.
Passive: For less mobile activities, winter season, and sleeping; made with the addition of merino wool or with a thin layer of fleece or Powerstretch.
2. Main Walking Clothing:
Jacket, pants, or shorts. Should be durable, lightweight, and quick-drying.
In cold weather, an additional layer of insulation can be worn under a windbreaker or jacket. Fleece or Powerstretch pants and a sweater work well.
4. Rain Protection:
In case you have to move in the rain or snow, it's worth getting clothing that protects against precipitation. The best option is a jacket and pants made of membrane fabric, which does not let rain or snow in while allowing moisture from your body to evaporate.
A more budget-friendly option is a waterproof poncho or jacket. However, they are less comfortable for long walks as they do not prevent moisture from the body from getting outside.
There are also more universal clothing models that combine several functions. For example, Softshell clothing protects against wind and moderate precipitation while also being breathable and suitable for walking.
How to Choose Trekking Clothing:
First and foremost, consider the specifics of your journey and the weather conditions.
In the summer, bring lightweight, breathable clothing with short sleeves. In winter or high altitudes, you'll need walking clothes that provide good protection against the wind, as well as accessories to protect your hands, feet, and head.
Things to Consider When Choosing Trekking Clothing:
Trekking clothing assumes constant movement, so choose elastic clothes that follow your figure or do not restrict movement.
The lighter your clothing, the lighter your backpack, and you can bring more essentials.
Choose items made from durable fabrics, reinforced in areas prone to friction (elbows, knees, shoulders). Quality and well-thought-out clothing will last longer.
