Important Tip
All clothing should be put in Plastic bags. Clothing should be loose fitting to allow ventilation in hot weather. Nylon / Acrylic is best for the reason that they dry quicker when wet. Cotton takes forever to dry but is good for those hot sunny days. Clothing must be light in colors ( beige, tan, light green etc.). Dark colors attract black flies and mosquitoes and therefore should be avoided. Remember, when going into the wilderness some things are better left at home.
