I know this man without knowing him, hehehe, you know. On Sunday when we were in the snow told that jeans are great for everything except for water, if snow better uses technical trousers, if your budget is not enough for some of Goretex, at least use some gaiters. The truth is that it takes good technical garments on top, even a Camelbak, but Levi's ... best for the city, hehehe
He was wearing a base layer underneath the jeans...but I'm in total agreement with you. I never hike in anything made of cotton material. It doesn't breath, wick moisture away, and once it's wet, it stays wet. I hike with alot of stupid people.
In our local sporting goods store, there is a sign over the cold weather clothing that warns, "Cotton is the enemy!" I couldn't agree more. If you really want to be colder, however, be sure to wear cotton! Levi's, they're like wearing ice tubes around your legs. :o
People never learn do they? I remember one time white water rafting, and one of the people in the boat, wearing jeans! I wore a wetsuit over my bathing suit. Needless to say, we all got soaked.
Well, I'll be the counterpoint and recognize that one of the greatest inventions Made in Usa (and not to flatter) is the jeans, what happens is that in winter are not advisable because they act as sponges and become wet once stiff and frigid, however when I started in this mountain were the clothes he was wearing were invented thousand years later all-purpose technical garments and situation but then no, I remember carrying military boots ... Leather! that once seemed wet wood, the feeling of standing inside them was, how to say ... Freezing? or a flannel shirt as a Canadian lumberjack, sometimes I think that it was epic, but we were like Shakelton rookie version, hehe. But I think you're something hard with your teammates Susan, ill-equipped to be no problem, the only thing that can happen is to get wet, delaying the group, I do at night, see a hungry bear, the leaking prison a serial murderer hiding in the woods, I dismembered .. minor problems that are easily solved ;P ha ha ha
