Post up your experiences and reviews of backpacking shirts and pants suitable for High Sierra Travel here.

This forum is predominantly concerned with our Summertime base layers. For me these are typically zip to shorts pants with a poly tank top during Summer.

Pantlegs and a cotton long-sleeved shirt supplement protection against mosquitoes and mild chill. Layers appropriate for the specific weather/temp profile complimenting our base layer.

As Fall deepens into Winter our base layers thicken to suite each of our specific individual balances between heat generation and cold protection.
