Clothing and outerwear evaluation and recommendations are very important if you are not a seasoned hiker. In fact, the right clothing and outerwear are just as critical as the right gear for your hike.
The one and the only thing we can’t control when outdoors is the weather! It can change in a heartbeat, especially in the mountains. I’ve experienced it many times.
Let me tell you there is nothing worse than being cold and wet to distract from the fun of an outdoor adventure…while sometimes it is inevitable that Mother Nature throws you a curveball, I can help you to minimize your discomfort and recover as quickly as possible. I use the typical seasonal weather patterns to plan and forecast hiking adventures in order to avoid bad weather.
I evaluate and make proper recommendations (if needed) regarding footwear, socks, cold weather garments, base layers, mid layers, top layers, sleep/town clothes vs. hiking clothes, and I evaluate town (non-hiking shoes).
After the clothes/outerwear inventory review and needs assessment, I will provide you with:
- Either a phone/internet shopping option or a person-to-person shopping option.
