There are questions that you can answer simply.
That is, by learning to adapt your clothes so that it matches all the possible conditions you can meet in the warm season.
Layered clothing: Make up the outfit according to circumstances!
What to wear: hiking in hot weather
Between May and September, chances are just as much to give as warmth, cooling times or a mix and fluctuations from one hour to the next.
With an effective multilayer system, your body will remain dry, warm, or cold (depending) and you will feel comfortable.
But everything is conditioned by how external conditions are.
That it’s not all to have a clear sky and temperate weather or a whimsical climate with everything, how is it not even if you are flying in the spring (as the climate is still gentle) or in the summer core, with the ruthless sun above your head.
In short, there is no “universal” outfit, depending on the weather and the type of activity. That being said, how do you dress, if …?
... Is it hot, sunny and you do not get too high?
It’s the simplest situation where the coats are short sleeve shirts and shorts. Preferably, both articles include UV treatments.
Your adventure is more of a nature walk or excursion. There is no cloud here, anywhere.
The horizon, to all four cardinal points, is clean as the tear. And the temperatures you can look for shady places and water to cool off.
Besides, I can not miss some accessories such as a sun hat and a high SPF beach lotion. The product, if you choose to buy it from ProAlpin stores, is also available for children, with SPF 50.
… Are you still “dry,” but do you have higher odds?
Broadly speaking, the conditions are the same as the previous point (sun, warm, favorable weather forecast, atmospheric stability).
The only difference is that the walk becomes more of a mountain hike, and the hiker is actually a trekker.
Although the situation does not change radically, the outfits, yes.
No one denies the dangers of the sun in the mountains, more precisely the radiation to which they expose you once you hit certain odds.
Climbing, on the one hand, with UV radiation, on the other hand, with lower thermal values.
The secret that you do not dare to the first breeze or the first shadowy path is in the clothing.
It remains essentially the base layer with the jerseys in power.
In addition, this time, your body will dance for more protection and isolation, that is after another layer.
If needed, it will protect you from the wind and keep you warm (if you make a stop, when the tempered clouds and the wind clings).
In addition to the UV-protected base layer, besides sun cream and hat, add a middle layer to keep in mind when you begin to feel cool.
Choose a lightweight, lightweight piece that does not occupy much space in your luggage.
It can be a blues, a thin polar, a softshell or a windproof jacket, not necessarily padded, of the layers category.
Keep the second layer behind you, get a 1-day hiking backpack of up to 30 liters. One bigger one just screws you up and gets worse.
… Does the weather look uncertain?
If so far the deficiency made it altitude, in this situation, it depends very much on weather forecasts. It may be warm, with the chance of rain and cool cooling. But it can also be cool, windy and raining, with the possibility to head for a moment.
Also, at odds, as you know (or not), the uncertain climate is the order of the day if you plan a long turn to the heights.
Already during this period, the “script” characterizes little of all regions, regardless of altitude. So, you have to go out with the “themes” made and the backpack ready for anything.
That’s why, it’s right to keep the base layer, the shirt. And replace the middle layer or intermediate layer with something impermeable.
Softshell may not be enough, just like the wind jacket. But surely with a waterproof jacket, you’ll be doing fine. It also does not require lining when the thermal values are appropriate.
… Are the conditions not at all friendly?
This should not prevent you from escaping between the four walls and quitting the planned trip, on the contrary. You should be amazed to equip yourself to the book and enjoy a few hours of outdoor exercise.
In other words, you need to concentrate on a formula that works, with all three layers present and variations of the intermediate layer.
As usual, it starts with the first layer, in this case, a short sleeve shirt. If it’s cool for the good, you can even think of thermal clothing, as you use in the cold season in hiking through the snow and the slopes.
Continue with the middle layer necessary to maintain body heat and prevent cooling. It’s not the last one, so a polar fleece works very well, precisely because it has the right technology.
And to finish, you can not miss the waterproof layer, which will protect you from the weather. Mandatory, it does not get excellent in front of tens of thousands of rainfall. It has to meet another criterion, namely respiration.
As you are used to, the first barrier against external factors is the waterproof jacket or what you know as hardshell.
If it’s cold, you can turn to a padded pattern. Or you can change what you have under, replacing the polar with a puff jacket.
At the same time, the feather jackets are extraordinary if there is no show of precipitation. But you guys …
Did you remember about clothing in layers? How much do you put on?
Not at all, depends on the weather! So, in order not to lose the spirit of adventure …
In broad terms, this was all about hot-layer coats, specifically how to personalize the outfit according to the weather.
Because once you take a step into open spaces, the wonderful nature gets you with your arms open.
But her splendor does not prevent her from diversifying with the same kind of situations.
It’s not about what you’re doing in a walk to the mall or the corner of the street. Where anyone who does normal clothes, which do not include special technology, is even going to be an aversion.
And it’s not necessarily mountain trips all over the place, with mountain tents, sleeping bags, and other camping equipment at the bearer.
Understandably, nobody has what they’re looking for without a complete “trust” for hiking and camping.
