When we are going on trekking, we need to choose clothes which depend on the conditions of the place.

No denim jeans or “I love to hike” cotton tees

It is not a good idea to wear this type of clothes since cotton can store the water, so we will keep on sweating that can make us feel over fatigue since we can feel the hot temperature that can irritate our skin.

Polyester, Nylon or Merino wool

All of these materials have a good reputation because of its excellent features, such as sweat off our skin and can quickly dry our skin. It can help to lessen the tendency that we will feel not feel the heat from the sun to ensure that we can manage how far we go with a smile on our face.

Our skin needs to breathe, that is why when our body suffers from overheating, it can cause a variety of health problems. It is the reason that some people prefer to wear skirts or kilts to ensure that there will be more ventilation.

Purchase a Jacket with Water-Resistant Exterior

Rest assured that we will remain dry when we wear our water-resistant jacket whenever it rains to keep ongoing. It can also help to make sure that there will be no hindrance to our trekking. We will not be able to catch a cold because our body is dry.
