I was wondering about concurring cold and at times wet. I was thinking about the
body and feet.
Right now I use the usual rain suit that works OK. ANd I have cold weather
wool jerseys. That all seems to work OK. However, the feet is another question.
I have been letting my shoes get wet if it raining. Could protect the shoes,
or could protect the foot (with a bag or somthing)and let the shoes get wet.
In cold weather I have not found out a good WARM method for them.
In the clod I have been using wool sock with a linner sock. A neopreme bootie
over the shoe, but I still get cold.
I started looking at water proof shoes lately. Also came across vapor barrier
cloths and socks. But I do not know. On a trip it is good to not have to carry
two pairs of shoes. And I am not sure the vapor barrier stuff is the answer.
After all, up to now all I have heard is wick away the sweat and
layer for warmth. The vapor clothing guys have a completely different thought.
They say hold moisture next to the body and then layer, but being you are
making your own micro climant next to your skin, you will not need so many
What do you carry for cold or wet?
