    90% of the time I wear BDUs Woodland Cammo, or a good cargo pant khaki's in tan or brown, a flannel shirt of greens or browns when its cooler, or tan thermal long wolly shirt with earth tone t-shirt over top and my balmoral cap.
    Although I have been known to wear my kilt on several occasions, yup, a good kilt, and my moc's.

    We apparently have the same fashion advisor Mr. Beowulf, although I don't have a kilt, yet. (I'm trying to find out the correct tartan for me ancestors and wear that)

    Man, a kilt would be great. Reminds me of a song............

    I ran this by my wife once, she put the kybosh on it.

    The first rendezvous I attended, many, many years ago. I put on my breech clout, leggins, and shirt. Kissed my wife goodbye and she asked "honey, where you going like that, are you making some kind of Indian porn movie?" "we need to fix this as you can't walk out like that." So she through together a kind of wrap around leather kilt.

    "That's better dear, ya don't look so porno now."

    What kind of clothing materials are the most durable for hard travel in the wilderness during the various seasons of the year?

    I wear a pair of Lowa GTX mid0leg boots and thick boot socks, On my legs i wear a under thermal layer and on top of that a pair of S95 (Soldier 95) trousers and also carry waterproofs in matching colour, On my top i wear another thermal layer then a light wool t-shirt, a medium thickness jumper then a light wind/water proof smok and also carry a thick warm jacket. I bring a nice warm hat and in winter a baliclava.

    All that keeps my nice and toasty out in the woods or whereever i am. One thing tho, Layer your clothing so you can take off when its warmer and put on when its colder. Another thing, dont by lots of clothes for your feet, upper body and head and only put on one piece of clotheing on your legs, you will lose a lot of heat by doing that.
    A wise person does at once, what a fool does at last. Both do the same thing; only at different times.

    Lightbulb Best clothng. . .

    Depends on your locale?!

    Boreal forest:
    I usually wear wool or a wool/silk blend of various weights. Light weight in the summer and heavy weight in the winter.

    Desert:
    Cotton or cotton blends. Something that will retain moisture (water or sweat), yet dry completely before night fall.

    Jungle or North Pacific Coast:
    Cotton/Nylon blends work best.

    No matter where I go I carry my silk unders. Both longs and shorts. They are lightweight,very compact able and will keep you cool in the heat and warm in the cold.

    Hope this helps?!
    Everything I have posted is pure fantasy. I have not done any of the things that I have claimed to have done in my posts. I actually live in Detroit.

    It's hard to beat wool. A polypro material for the first layer although Native Dude's suggestion on silk is also good.

    Smile Bushin' it boots...

    Years ago in my early twenties I bought a pair of Greb Kodiak's and wore them faithfully everywhere for over fifteen years. They were treated with Sylafex which was a type of waterproofing back then and they sure kept my feet dry. Of course I'd treat them with liquid silicon every spring to keep up the water-resistance power too after the first two years. Hard to beat those tough old boots. Anyone else ever worn Kodiak's?

    Fast forward twenty years...If first impressions are anything, the boots I most graciously received this Christmas from my best friend and life-long buddy Bruce, are the cat's meow! These totally awesome boots are very light weight, they're super sturdy and they are also, waterproof. If any of you know the name Mossy Oak, you may be familiar with my new Predator's. These folks, are REAL bush boots. Best I've worn in a long time. The last three days workin' out in the snow up past my knees, sealed the deal for me. No wet or cold feet for this ol' doggy anymore for a couple of years.

    What do y'all wear on your feet most often while bushin' it?
    Have a super one...

    We have to wear some sort of winter pac boots that are waterproof (because of overflow on the lakes) for about 6 months of the year. I always just buy the cheapo winter gum boots from Crappy Tire, they usually last two seasons. My partner has ordered and tried just about any kind of winter gum boot there is, he's got a pair of Mossy Oak too, but he still hasn't found anything that will last more than 2 years. Maybe because we wear them in pretty cold weather and then also for such a length of time. They'd probably all last longer under "normal" conditions.

    Is anyone wearing mukluks? They are our favourite footwear for cold and dry conditions. Always have toasty dry feet even when it's in the -30s.

    Smile Not Mukluks but...

    When I'm ice fishing or working in the snow all day, I wear a nice husky "snow-mobile" boot. The thick rubber bottom type with the old fashioned wool felt booties inside and the laced tight nylon tops for going over your pantleg. I also spray the uppers (nylon) with silicon and never get cold or wet even when on the ice all day. Before them, NOTHING worked.
