For this category I wanted to make sure fabrics were breathable, moisture wicking, and would dry fast. The idea is to have multiple layers in order to compensate for constant altitude/weather changes. On test rides in the winter here in NY I’ve comfortably worn a loft jacket, over riding jacket, over hoodie, over t-shirt, over base layer, and found myself needing to remove layers very quickly. I don’t expect this set up to withstand extreme cold temperatures as I get closer to the southern peaks so I will probably buy a heavier jacket as I get close.
- T-shirts (2)
- Convertible Shorts/Pants
- Long sleeve Base Layer
- Under Armor Long Johns Base Layer
- Underwear (3)
- Socks (2 long, 1 short)
- Icebreaker Balaclava/neck protector (not on picture)
- Basic sandals for showering (not pictured)
- Walking shoes (not pictured)
In regards to shoes, I’m still undecided as they tend to take a lot of space. I’ve been looking into Keen Newport H2 to use as both shoe and sandal but they don’t feel too comfortable. If I go with cheap sandals, i’ll take a pair of Converse since they pack small. I need some help here guys!
Most things on the list are made out of Merino Wool or synthetic fabrics. Stay away from cotton!
