Outdoor Clothing for Adventurous Travellers
Having the right clothing can really determine how comfortable.. or miserable you are on a hike or expedition. These are some of our favorite items to keep you comfortable while outside in the elements.
Merino Wool Base
Wicking layers are good for heat and sweat evaporation. Consider a merino wool base layer for colder climates such as this one from Icebreaker. Merino is great for layering, and can be worn for days on end without smelling.
Tilley T5MO - The undisputed champion of wide brimmed hats
A wide brimmed sun hat is essential for hiking, adventure travel, gardening, fishing or anything where you are out in the sun for long periods of time.
The Tilley T5MO is made of organic, eco-friendly material. The ventilated crown helps move warm air out and cool air in, and the hat is machine washable so it will not shrink. Made of 98% cotton, 2% Spandex, this hat is only 3.5 ounces with a 2 5/8" brim at the front/back and 2 1/8" brim at the sides. The hat has a UPF rating of 50+, meaning it blocks 98% of UVA/UVB radiation.
It's comfortable, cool, and does the job perfectly, we think it's the king of wide brimmed hats.
