Womens Outdoor Clothing Shopping Tips
Packing for any trip can be extremely difficult for women since we need to have clothing options, however choosing the correct pieces for a camping trip are even more important since hauling along a second suitcase isn’t an option. CampGear.com has a selection of womens outdoor clothing including tops, shorts, pants, jackets, swimwear, and hats in addition to footwear.
Depending on the time of year the style and amount of womens camping clothing you pack will change. For summer camping short sleeve tops and shorts might be more appropriate, while in the spring or late fall hoodies, layering tops and pants might be better. Regardless of the season it is a good idea to pack a jacket. In addition to helping keep you warm the right style of jacket can be incredibly helpful if the rain clouds roll in.
When it comes to jackets finding the choosing the right style is key. CampGear.com has shell jackets, soft shell jackets, and fleece jackets to choose from. Fleece jackets are ideal for camping in colder, drier conditions. Various fleece jacket designs are available with or without hoods to suit your personal preferences. Shell jackets are great for protection from the rain; however, these styles aren’t insulated so they don’t offer much thermal protection at colder temperatures. Soft shell jackets are great options for camping. They are made from stretch material which won’t impede mobility. These stretch fabrics are waterproof or water resistant and dry quickly. Many styles have a lightweight fleece backing to help keep you warm.
Based on where you are camping packing a bathing suit may be a great idea. There are plenty of bathing suit options to choose from in the Swimwear category. The dresses and skirts available are good choices for bathing suit cover ups. They are also comfortable options for down time at the campsite.
In addition to packing your womens camping clothing you will want to have camping appropriate footwear. For backpacking or rugged hiking it is highly recommended to wear hiking boots or trail shoes. These types of shoes will provide you with appropriate traction and support for varied terrain. If your camping adventures lead you to water, you may want to have a pair of water shoes or water sandals with you as riverbeds can be rocky and uneven. If you are car camping at the state park wearing trail shoes or even sandals should be more than appropriate. Additionally, as beaches or swimming areas are more likely to be maintained, sandals may be more appropriate than water shoes as you can easily wear most sandals in the showers and they can quickly be slipped on for midnight outhouse trips.
