I'm planning on getting on the trail around the first of August. I'm trying to get the last of my gear lined out and I'm hoping to get some feedback on my clothing.
Nike running shorts
Older Kelty wind/rain jacket. (pretty basic hooded nylon jacket)
Coldpruf Platinum Midweight Underwear, wool/poly blend - (long sleeve shirt and long johns)
Wally world "dry star" long sleeve. I couple sized too big, makes for a nice moderate weather shirt, easy to roll the sleeves up if it get hot. Fits well over long johns.
Lightweight fleece gloves
Generic lightweight stocking cap
1 pair mid weight smart wool socks, 2 pair lightweight running socks.
I've been looking at picking up some rain pants...for rain as well as the chilly mornings.
I keep looking at my clothes and think that I'm going to be cold. I'm not used to the mountain temperatures so it's hard to anticipate what to expect. I'm definitely going to add some sort of pants to the equation, but will I need something else for my upper body?
I've got a 20 degree bag which I've always stayed pretty warm in, so I'm not much worried about the nights. Just not sure what to expect during the days especially at high altitudes.
I'd love to see others clothes lists for their CT hikes.
