Camping Equipment and Outdoor Clothing
When the summer months approach and the weather gets warmer, the prospect of a weekend spent in a tent, for many families, becomes a tempting alternative to more expensive ways of taking holidays. In this article, I will give you some brief information on how to choose sleeping bags, and what outdoor clothing you will need for various activities. You can also view this article on choosing a tent.

Appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear for hill walking
Hill walking can be an enjoyable activity, but you will need to dress appropriately. Clothing should keep you warm and dry, and protect you from wind, rain, snow etc, so the outer layer needs to be wind and waterproof. You should also consider wearing clothes that are "breathable" to allow sweat to evaporate, to keep you dry. You should also have waterproof and windproof gloves, and appropriate head gear as a third of our body's heat loss is through our heads.
Footwear will need to satisfy these requirements:
Thick socks will make your boots more comfortable and offer additional warmth for your feet. Socks made from natural fibres offer the best insulation properties whilst allowing perspiration to evaporate. Natural fibres include cotton, wool and silk.
You can also wear gaiters in very wet conditions to help prevent water running down your legs into your boots.
