I was out hiking in Yosemite (Cloud’s Rest) this weekend, and I noticed a fair number of folks on the trail wearing jeans and cotton t-shirts. Since I sweat profusely, dressing like that is completely out of the question. When I discovered that synthetic fibers would save me from hiking/biking/running in sweat-soaked clothing, I never wore cotton for aerobic activities again.
So, I’m curious: do Dopers prefer the feel of natural fibers, or do you like the yuppified super-wicking wonder fabrics?
Added bonus question: do you wear activity-specific clothing?
