Backpacking Clothes – What I Wear & Pack

A discussion on clothing choices for backpacking, hiking & camping trips.

In this video, I’ll go over each backpacking clothing item that I’ll be wearing for an upcoming backpacking trip, as well as spare and alternate clothing options that I’ll be packing for the hike.

These are pretty much the same clothes take I would take on just about any 3-season hiking trip.
