Re: Best base layer for tough physical hunting
Just a friendly help on prices and such.... Wally world sells 100% polyester long-sleeve t-shirts (an essential clothing item for me in the mountains) for like $12.
It's the same exact stuff North Face, Patagonia, Marmot, et al sell for 3x (and more) the cost. I'm not telling a yarn - i used to have a PT retail job selling gear in an Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS) store and hawked that stufff to get an employee discount on expensive tents/sleeping bags/etc and saw it every week. I can afford the spendy stuff, but it is absolutely no different than the stuff i saw grocery shopping one find day. Ha! More cash for fuel to go places and the same excellent wicking performance.
Otherwise, there's a wealth of great information here about mountain athletic wear - just NEVER wear cotton and you'll be worlds ahead. As mentioned, start out cold - you'll warm up soon enough.
