Clothing

Clothing for the outdoors must be practical. Choose carefully, and don’t swallow sales-blurbs too willingly. In our experience, once someone has settled on a favourite garment they use it for many years. No single garment will do all jobs – you need a versatile system of layers that can be arranged to suit all weathers. Your clothing will need to cope with hot dry conditions as well as cold, wind and wet.

Clothing for upper body

Loose and comfortable T-Shirt or Shirt (Full Sleeves preferably); full sleeves shields us against Sun; Cold; insect bites and thorny bushes. You may carry spare half sleeves t-shirts for warm evening or morning wears near your camp site.

Always wear clothing in multiple layers and in fabric that can breathe to reduce condensation. My personal favorite is cotton clothing in the inner layer to your body as its texture is more skin friendly. The outer layers can be a mix of natural and artificial fabric.

Trousers / Shorts

For trousers should be preferable light weight; poly-cotton can be a good option as they are strong; dry quickly and can breathe. Avoid heavy Jeans. A mix of lycra in the fabric can give it additional stretch and can be useful while climbing or scrambling mountains.

Always carry light shorts they can be pretty handy; they can be used as extra change and also as swimming short when needed.

Outer Jacket / Shell layer (Seasonal – winter / monsoon)

Keep an outer jacket handy that can protect you against wind; cold and rain. This should be made of light layer; water proof yet its material should be able to breathe.

Undergarments

they are light hence carrying plenty in spare; two pairs per day. If you are going on an expedition which covers more than a week or two you may consider washing and reusing.

Hats, Socks and Gloves / Mittens 

Woolly hat and mittens for winter, many pairs of woollen / cotton socks depending on the season; and some waterproof Goretex socks can also be handy.

Leather Mittens are also very useful they can be used for climbing down from ropes; rappelling, holding hot vessels and protecting hands against cold.

Woollen monkey cap can be another useful item to carry round the year; it is light to carry and can be handy at night. It can get cold in woods during nights even during summer.

For summer; carry hats/ caps with good shade; always carry a spare cap. Wash spare cap / hat whenever you get an opportunity near some pond / stream / river. These keeps your cap bacterial free and clean.

Shoes

You get shoes in all sizes and shapes that can be useful for different conditions and requirement. Historically most shoes were made of leather but now you have option of having synthetic shoes or synthetic mix with leather.

Go for shoes that are made of though material; that have flexible sole. Do not opt for shoes that have very high and spongy heals; these will put you in a very clumsy situation while climbing steep slopes.

Wear sports shoes that are comfortable to your feet and the ones that fit you just right. Loose shoes can cause blisters; and tight shoes can also damage your feet severely. Brand and shape is your personal choice. Try out the shoes properly in the showroom because it is an expensive investment and one that can make your journey comfortable or painful.

We are not going to cover specialized shoes for professional rock climbing or snow conditions as that is out of scope here.

Gaiters (Only for big treks or snow region)

Gaiters are an additional layer of strap that you wear between your shoes and knee. These protect your trousers from getting wet; from thorns and can also be handy in grass lands as a protective layer against bytes from most snakes and insects.

Sun Glasses

Travelling outdoors over an extended duration of time can expose you to lots of Ultra violet radiation from sun and can be very stressful for your eyes. In snow covered area it can also cause snow blindness. Sun Glasses can be very handy in these conditions; also check the rating of the sun glasses against UV before you buy them. See that they are correct ones as per your need.
