Spring Gear

TOP

  • Mid-weight merino wool or synthetic baselayer (1 if you run hot, 2 if you run cold). Baselayers are the tops closest to your skin.

  • Midlayer, such as a sweater or puffy jacket. Down puffy if you run hot, synthetic puffy if you run cold (or if you're a vegan.

  • Outer layer, a shell like a rain jacket if you run cold and/or insulated, water proof/resistant jacket. It does rain in the spring.

  • No big, heavy coats, because they're not easy to pack in your bag and too heavy to lug around.

BOTTOM

  • You can start wearing shorts now.

  • Cotton pants are OK. Cords or denim not recommended.

FOOTWEAR

  • Sturdy sneakers or hiking boots.

ACCESSORIES

  • Wool socks.

  • Headwear.

  • Thin gloves.

  • Flashlight (because it gets dark earlier, this is recommended as standard).

  • Bug repellent (like DEET).
