Re: Winter camp clothes

I find there is a psychological effect to changing up my clothes at night. Also, even though you may not feel sweaty you could have moisture trapped. Changing into a dry wool base layer at night for me is key.
Hey, to each their own.

Re: Winter camp clothes

I like reading all the comments. I'm still stuck on wich down jacket to buy for sitting around camp. Just picked up a pair of sorel alpha Pac xt. Boots. I think those should be good for Algonquin trips. I will play it by ear with the changing of clothes. Definetly my socks will be changed.

Re: Winter camp clothes

I am in the night base layers are the same as the day base layers camp. It's just a personal preference I think. However, I am very conscious of not getting damp from sweat during the day.  Socks always get changed though.

I'm down to the marmot shadow jacket 700fill or the north face l6 summit
Marmot is a lot cheaper.

Re: Winter camp clothes

Winners @ Dixie Mall had some nice Marmot Down jackets. I think they were about $125.  They had some Mountain hardwear stuff too.  Might be worth a look at your local store.

Re: Winter camp clothes

As far as wool sweaters and layers are concerned I've been ordering lots from the Gap lately. They have good deals and good quality clothes. This wool blend sweater in particular is very warm and fits very well and is a pretty good deal when they have good sales. I got it for $35.
