Hiking Shirt For hot days in mid-summer, we recommend a lightweight, synthetic shirt, either long or short sleeves. Long sleeves are preferred for sun protection.\\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\nA Good Summer Option A lightweight hiking shirt or t-shirt is ideal for ascending the snowfield on hot days. Stay away from dark colors as they absorb the sun and are hot. We recommend light fun colors. They look great in photos!\\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\nHiking Pants/Shorts A lightweight, synthetic pair of pants or shorts is a good option for hiking at lower altitudes and in warm conditions. This piece has no insulation and are typically made of thin nylon. The pants commonly feature zippers to convert between pants and shorts.\\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\n
