The North Face: A beginner's guide to camping clothes.



Every activity has a dress code. If you’re into baking as a hobby, you need your apron and your head covering. Should you be a jogger, then you’ve got your running shoes, comfortable earbuds for music and a lightweight water bottle. If you’re a camping enthusiast, you’ll have a look too.


The aim isn’t just to show off your brand name gear and that cool parka you just bought (even though this is okay if that’s what you want to do), but to keep you protected in all weather, all temperatures, and all terrains.


Your clothes are the meat of the matter. If you’re new to camping, it’s likely that you packed too few clothes. Camping can be a dirty activity and there are usually no laundry facilities.

In cold weather, wetness kept close to the body will make you feel even chillier. Wear thick socks to insulate your feet. Pack a hat to wear to insulate your head. It should fit closely.


The M Campshire Full Zip is ultra-warm, and equally as soft, full-zip jacket for getting a little more comfortable at the mountain cabin. Its features include standard fit, 300-weight Sherpa fleece, center front zip, rib on cuffs, secure-zip hand pockets.

Headwear and eyewear to protect those parts of your body from the sun is also a good idea. Shorts will be tempting in the hot weather, but you don’t want your legs exposed to insect life or poisonous plants.
