I'm trying to finish my clothing options for 3 season in N.C./TN area. I'm looking to buy an insulating jacket...Please tell me if this sounds good
-From inner to outer-
Merino 1 shirt
Patagonia sun hoody or R1 pullover depending on season
Houdini wind jacket
montbell ul down inner jacket
golite poncho for rain
I'm worried that the MB jacket won't hold up due to the abrasion/wear from my pack(zpack exo, if it matters), since it will be the outer layer. Is this something I should be worried about ?
also, I get pretty hot when hiking, so is it possible that I wouldnt need the MB jacket while hiking, just in camp or early mornings?
