What to Wear on a Hike (from a feeling-pro)

Aside from slathering ourselves with a good amount of sunblock (evenly please, which I keep forgetting for my past 2 climbs waaaah) and bringing x liters of water, wearing the right gear is important if you're going on a hike soon.

Here's a quick checklist for a sunny climb like Mt. Talamitam or Mt Batulao:

Dri-fit tops and pants, sunglasses, cap, hiking bag, hiking shoes, non-slip socks & sports bra

For really cool climb like Mt. Pulag, layering is key and your clothes have to be as close to the skin as possible to avoid becoming Mrs. Freeze:

Sports bra, Heat-tech tops and pants,leggings, jacket, gloves, bonnet and scarf
