I've been reading a lot about clothing to take on backpacking trip. Never camped for an entire week on a mountain away from a car. I've done some fly fishing trips, but not backpacking while hunting.
Seems sitka, kifura, and first lite are some of the better brands that are coming up. I'm come to the conclusion that I need to look at getting merino wool of some sort.
Any suggestions on other gear that doesn't break my bank besides sitka, etc? I currently have some nice polartec heavyweight base layers. I think they will be too hot and from other peoples suggestions I've read you don't want to use these types of material.
I like merino wool for scent control. They claim it controls scent better. Also for warmth when wet. Wanting to get something that is quick drying if wet. Lightweight is also important. I'm basically describing the clothing of the brands above, but want a different alternative for price. Probably not out there, but thought I would give it a shot. I might just be getting sold on the idea too?
I'm going to be throwing Elk posts up very often with questions and to merely just talk about it with others that are planning elk hunt or have done in the past. I might have a problem as it seems to be consuming my mind at all times. I have a feeling I'm going to have a real problem once I experience an elk hunt.
