i want to hike volcanos, and in my country the coldest is 14 degrees farenheit, i need the following:
1. thermal long-sleve shirt to go to sleep in tent. As first layer protection.
2. thermal pants to go to sleep in tent. As first layer protection.
3. Second layer protection sweater. I already have third layer protection jacket for this, so i need like a light sweater under my jacket.
thanks a lot!
@jplopez Suggest Smartwool 250 merino wool base layer or REI merino wool base layer unless you have a wool allergy. These are mid weight so maybe not enough for the arctic but I think warm enough for what you are looking for...depending on your sleep system of course.
A fleece jacket or hoody is best for active use. I prefer zipped rather than a pullover even if it is under an outer jacket. For evenings you are probably going to want to add a down puffy of some sort.
Think of getting an alpaca hoodie. It can be used as a mid-layer and keeps you warm. Alpaca is really warm and doesn't stink after a couple day's on the trail...
