View Full Version : Long Underwear

I am looking at taking two sets of polyester long underwear to Springer for an early March start. Should I take a light set and a heavy set or a different combination? I want one set for hiking and one set for sleeping/camp/being wet and cold.

It all depends on what else you are taking for layering.

Frankly, for all my outdoor activities (cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, working outside, etc), I just use the mid weight long underwear, and then add layers as needed.

I would take the heavy set, and frogg toggs complete with rain pants and switch to the lighter set after the smokies. Also a 200 or 300 weight fleece top. This is just my 2 cents and assuming that your heavyweights are good and warm. I see you are from Michigan so maybe you know cold weather camping. You will probably get to do some. After the Smokies, things are usually warmer.
