Camping Wardrobe Essentials for Men
Camping is a great way to unwind; a wonderful way to spend time outdoors. To make the most of it, carry the right camping essentials with you to avoid the last minute hassles. You need some basic gears like a tent/shelter, sleeping bag, camp bedding, lights, and camp kitchen essentials. Prepare yourself with the right clothing essentials for a perfect time outdoors.
1. Layering Outfits
When it comes to clothing essentials, you need to wear outfits in layers. Base layer clothing should be of breathable material and insulating layer should be worn above base layer but beneath the outer layer. Base layer clothing should be of moisture wicking material for instance synthetic fabric outfits are recommended than natural fabrics. Choose for layering outfits that come with wool, fleece and so on as these being the best for retaining the heat. They are soft and light-weight as well. Depending on the type of climate and the insulation you require you can choose between light weight, expedition weight and mid weight outfit materials.
2. Waterproof coat
No matter how equipped you are, be wary of rain. A sudden downpour in the midst of camping can spoil the merriment and fun, if not proper clothing supplements are with you. Make sure that you have packed a waterproof raincoat in your bag. Make the most of the climate by not forgetting to accompany the most needed clothing gear if climate suddenly changes. Get your waterproof jacket ready for situations where you think there is a likelihood of rain.
Camping during winter? Never forget to have a pair of gloves. Or else, get a pair of mittens that are warmer than gloves. Though they do not provide the dexterity of gloves because the fingers are not separated as in the case of gloves, mittens perform the best while holding ski poles, going down a mountain on snowboard. Today, mittens that come with touch screen compatibility that allows you to operate smartphones and tablets smoothly while wearing them are easily available.
You have different choices on camping footwear- backpacking boots, hiking footwear, day hiking boots. Back packing boots are strong and able to withstand any rough situations and supports your feet while carrying heavy loads. Hiking shoes comes with flexible midsoles with low-cut. Day hiking boots as the name suggests can be used for day hikes and they come with either mid or high cut.
Last but not least, you should get suitable hats packed in your backpack before you set out. If camping is during summer, choose wide brimmed hat to help protect your face and eyes. If it is winter, you need to have a wool hat that covers ears and in colder climate, always ensure that you have a beanie cap or windproof hat.
