Extra pair of running shorts w/ liner (underwear), extra socks, and possibly long underwear to sleep in (for May in FL). Most "normal" trips (mountains), I add glove liners, knit cap, and insulating jacket (Montbell Thermawrap). I always pack some sort of rain gear (usually jacket & pants).

No extra hiking clothes but I bring long top and bottom silkweight for camp/sleeping. I also have an extra pair of socks for hiking and alternate them on longer trips.

Spare socks. And I bring long underwear and a sleepshirt. Mostly to keep body oil off my bag.

You got to learn to love your own smell. Either that or train your nose to ignore it.

I almost always share a quilt with my wife. Maybe I can learn to love my own smell, but she probably never will!

Usually a Capilene shirt and Kuhl brand pants with a little stretch (replace with surprisingly drafty Patagonia rock climber pants for summer which roll up to shorts).

Packed? Just a pair of REI silk baselayers to keep my expensive Western Mountaineering sleeping bag clean, some REI polypro sock liners for sleeping in dry feet and emergency use too. For winter only, a set of older black Patagonia Capilene baselayers (pre-stink treatment) dedicated for sleeping.

odd question... on 02/28/2012 20:27:11 MST Print View

Zero, changes of clothes for me, for a hike of that length

I wear long underwear at night, but that doesn't really count as a change of clothes.

Also, i suggest merino wool. It doesn't smell so you don't ever have to put smelly clothes back on the next day :)

If its warm I'd at least bring spair underwear, changing seems to help with chaffing in hot weather.
I have a mesh synthetic shirt. It seems to hold in less oder than a noraml synthetic shirt. The bad thing is bugs can bit through it.

Just spare socks and underwear, and sleeping clothes (wool long johns and silk long sleeve shirt).

Shirt from the day gets washed every evening, hung to dry.
