Hi guys, i am unfamiliar with proper layering, i dont know which layers i need and am also not aware of what everyone recommends these days, effective setup i can.
I will be thru hiking the AT over 2 summers in sections NOBO, so whatever gear i get will have to deal with the coldest the at can throw during july-late august.
After hours, and hours of reading, i am sold on the driclime windshirt from marmot-at around 40 bucks online it appears to be a good deal.
i need everything from shoes, to socks, to underwear, to shells, basically everything.
I currently live in ky, and hike here, i will be hiking here for the next few years until i can do the at in 2012 or so, so really my gear needs to work in ky too. (humid) BEcause i do not want to have to buy all new clothes when i do the AT-maybe only one or two pieces.
