I'm a Floridian and I have basically no idea how to layer or dress for cold weather.
Can someone help me with suggestions for all of the basic clothing items I will need, such as what pants and shirt I would wear on a day to day basis. I'm assuming I'll need:
One pair of a pants
Two pairs of boxers
Two pairs of socks
A pair of shorts maybe?
A down jacket like the Montbell Down UL.
Things I have that I was considering bringing:
Marmot rain paints (not sure if necessary)
Pair of smartwool socks
That's pretty much all I have, so I'm going to need a complete hiking wardrobe so to speak. Suggestions of brands, specific models, etc., will be appreciated.
Also, I'm planning on using just a pair of trail running shoes. I'm a fast hiker in excellent shape, so hopefully I will be south before any real cold weather hits.
