Spring/Fall clothingSpring/Fall Clothing (30F to 50F)

I almost always carry this layer. One July I experienced 30 degree temps in the NC mountains. I usually use fleece or polypropylene and wear my hiking shorts outside since this layer doesn't have pockets. The only time I haven't carried this stuff was summer hiking in Louisiana.

Weight in Ounces Item Description
2.1 Army knit PT cap A wool knit cap that has kept me warm in some of the worst situations.
9.4 REI PowerStretch Top Super thin, warm fleece. Most compressible fleece I have found. Made from Polartec PowerStretch Fleece . My old favorite was normal weight Army polypropylene long underwear.
1.2 Polypropylene sock liners Black thin sock liner by Brigade Quartermaster. I carry one pair as my base layer. In cooler weather I like to have a fresh pair. Combined with my Seal Skinz socks, they make a good cool weather system.
0.9 Polypro Glove Liners Ultra-lightweight polypropylene knitted glove liner is worn for greatest moisture transfer and insulation. Worn under mittens but good for finer camp work for short periods without the mittens on.
8.2 Arc'Teryx Rho Pants Super thin, warm fleece. Most compressible fleece I have found. Made from Polartec PowerStretch Fleece. This replaced my Army normal weight polypropylene pants.
