figuring out basic gear list on 10/21/2008 22:57:33 MDT Print View

Hello. I am trying to figure out my clothing for a pct hike starting june 15th in the southern sierras and possiblly making it to the california border.

For the top i was thinking of bringing a thermal top, synthetic hiking top, wind shell, ponch/backpack cover and a montbell wraparound jacket.I Am also thinking of bringing thin fleece gloves and a fleece hat.

for my bottom I am going to bring breathable waterproof pants, thermal bottoms, hiking shorts either regular synthetic or pure spandex. I will be using trail running shoes for the first part of the trail and possiblly move to regular running shoes after i pass up the main part of the snow.

If the wind shell sounds like a good idea does anyone know of a good light weight model. Any ideas on a good poncho.
