Last week I went on a wet and cold camping trip, and once again learned the value of good clothing in rough conditions. My cotton cargo pants looked like they went through a war, and they were bulky, heavy, and stayed damp. Pretty much a nightmare. Then when I was in the Seattle airport, flying out, I visited their Ex Officio store. Admittedely I was sleep deprived, but they seemed to have a lot of nice stuff, especially the nylon long sleeve shirts and convertible pants. I liked that their nylon didn’t look or sound like nylon. It was just like a very light cotton. Rather on the expensive side, but I would only be buying a couple of pieces, not a full wardrobe, so I could swing it.
So, anyone have experience with this stuff in real world situations? I’m planning on using it in hot weather camping and general backpack/hostel travel. Or if anyone has some alternatives, I’d love to hear them.
