Wear clothes that look attractive on you, but don’t forget
your clothing should to feel good too. Use fabrics that
will work with your camping activities and the weather
forecast. Pack clothing that can be easily washed and
dried. And always consider how your clothes will be layered
for maximum comfort.
Layer your clothing in order to adjust to changing temperatures.
Layering is simple. You start with an undershirt/underpants,
add middle (thicker) layers and lastly cover with a weather
resistant outer layer. This style of dress will allow
you to remain dry and warm (or cool).
Avoid the Smell
Don’t kill the Romantic mood with your smell. There are
several easy ways to avoid the not-so-romantic body odor.
Check out the following advice:
- Cotton: Absorbs
sweat. Cotton fabric can quickly become uncomfortable
and stinky. If engaging in physical activities like
hiking, avoid using cotton.
Polypropylene and polyester can wick away the sweat.
This means they are LESS stinky. Synthetics work well
as under-layers. They help keep your dry!
- Wool: Relatively
stink resistant. It’s warm too! Try using a soft knit
wool sweater as a middle layer.
Waterproof and windproof. It’s also breathable! This
means you will not get soaked in sweat and condensation.
Gore-Tex is an ideal outer layer.
- Fresh Clothes:
Designate a clean outfit (and clean socks) specifically
for hanging-out around camp. Remove wet, sweaty or dirty
clothes when you arrive at camp. Wash dirty clothes
with biodegradable soap or just let them air-out.
ROMANTIC IDEA: Avoid smelling bad! Begin by following the
clothing tips listed above. Also, don't forget to wash your
hands, face and neck with soap and water on a regular basis.
These simple things will help you maintain sex appeal.
