I really like North Face and Exofficio travel type clothes. I can tell I’m getting old because I started wearing long sleeves and pants treated with sawyers bug repellent. I used to wear the zip pants but now I don’t care about shorts much. My short sleeve shirt is a very light wool t shirt. The wool helps with the stink after several days on the trail. The main concern is bug bites. After many trips this summer I can count maybe 10 total bites.Just wondering what is it your wearing on trail? Gym shorts ? Hiking spec shorts / pants? Shirts shortsleeved or long ? Name brand / no name ?
Hikers are like cartoon characters - we wear the same thing every dayDepends. I have two backpacking "uniforms" that don't change much, though. One is "general purpose", while the other is for when temps are expected to be much lower.
A little mix and match happens on occasion, but a synthetic t under L/S nylon button up, and light weight nylon pants with some stretch, like the cheaper outlet version of EB Guide Pros, is typical.
Capilene 2 zipneck under OR Ferrosi hoody, and Marmot Scree softshell pants when it gets colder.
Same spot, similar trips, 4yrs apart, with different weather expectations:

I'm pretty much wearing one or the other in all my backpacking pics for the last 9yrs.
One of my Facebook friends once asked me, "don't you ever wear anything different?"
