What is the suggested clothing for the tours?

Summer and in the mid-seasons we tend to think that we can dress lighter, but that's not the case. Depending on the altitude and the weather it may be necessary to wear clothing such as fleece, anorak, hat and gloves. In order not to exceed in bringing clothes and at the same time not to leave something useful at home, here is a brief description of what is needed.

The basic rule is always to dress like an onion: you start with light clothing in contact with the skin and cover yourself with heavier clothing. In summer, warm clothing is usually stored in the backpack and if necessary we wear them according to the temperature and our feeling.

Before listing the clothes to wear and to keep in your backpack, I would like to underline two natural phenomena that can occur during our excursions:

WIND: The wind is in my opinion the worst enemy of the hiker, even on a beautiful day it can annoy us or worse make us catch the classic wind, especially when we are sweaty. Having a windstopper in your backpack is strongly recommended. The famous goretex jacket, for example,  is the perfect garment because it is light, breathable, waterproof and windproof; with this garment we have total protection.

RAIN: This natural phenomenon can also happen during an excursion. The climate in the mountains sometimes changes suddenly and a sudden downpour, even if of very short duration, can wet us from head to foot! I do not recommend an umbrella, in addition to being bulky, it can be a perfect attraction for lightning in the event of a storm. A  cape is widely used and is the cheapest solution. However, if we want to be more comfortable in the movements and better repaired, I recommend the k-way (or the goretex shell already mentioned) for the upper part and rain pants for the lower part.

Having made the premises with the most "annoying" natural elements, here is a list of types of clothing to best face your summer excursions:

UPPER PART OF THE BODY:

Short-sleeved shirt in breathable synthetic fabric (not too heavy)

Sleeveless windproof fleece (to wear if the morning is particularly cool)

Sun glasses.

LOWER BODY:

Lightweight technical fabric trousers (jeans highly not recommended). I recommend long pants.

Technical fabric socks. They cost a little but ensure breathability, do not make the foot sweat excessively and prevent the formation of slack.

Waterproof hiking boots.

WHAT TO KEEP IN YOUR BACKPACK

Microfleece in breathable fabric.

Sleeveless windproof microfleece.

Windbreaker, if possible in GoreTex or similar, (light) only serves as protection in windy weather or during a snowfall. The Kway can also be fine if you don't reach high altitudes.

Rainproof over-trousers

Gloves in case the cold is intense.

Technical fabric shirt and spare socks.

Water and food

Sun cream and cocoa butter.

BACKPACK

It is advisable to have a backpack of at least 25 litres, to store unused clothing. Another element not to be underestimated is that the backpack is equipped with side ties to be able to hang the sticks when not in use.

One last tip is to always wear colorful clothes, it's not a question of fashion but being colorful means being visible. In an emergency, you are more easily noticed.
