Cotton is just about the worst material to make athletic clothing from. The downsides of cotton are as follows:
Synthetic materials have come a long way in the past few decades. All of the clothing that I'm taking is made of some type of synthetic material. Two pair of shorts and all the shirts I'm taking are made of CoolMax Alta fabric (DuPont). Coolmax is made of polyester fibers. Benfits of CoolMax Alta include:
The socks and underwear I wear are also made of Coolmax.
Nylon and polyester are materials found in the body of the tent, the backpack, the sleeping bag, the sleeping pad, and rain clothes. These materials offer great strength, flexiblility, and can easily be made waterproof.
Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes.
