Smartwool is my favorite wool-based brand. Their socks are freaking amazing and they're hands down my favorite.

aroguejordan says:

I have been experimenting with coconut & essential oils mixtures instead of deodorant in everyday life to evaluate stink mitigation and have had decent results. I know DoTerra has an oil they recommend as a deet replacement that is body safe but if someone were to try this out on a week long trip they would probably be able to say with more confidence.

Patagonia R1 hoody!!! Rab xenon-x jacket!!! Nanoair light hybrid

Matthew Knox says:

5:34 when I wear a lot of wool

Leo D'oro says:

Minus 33 clothing 1/4 zip light weight merino wool top, very durable, very warm, especially when paired with a puffy jacket. Does not have any noticeable smell even after wearing for days on end, easy to wash as well. You can travel minimally in the cold with a light base layer as long as you keep moving.

CatWoman lol says:

Would it be a good idea to vacuumed (hand pump) seal your clothes or some food to save space in your pack?

Kevin McCall says:

I've switched to Wrangler flex fit cargo pants for work and hiking. They're $20 and just as good as my older Eddie Bauer $70 hiking pants.
I like pants just because.

Karen Jensen says:

What is your fleece?

Jamie Linnea Luckhaus says:

I'm a North Carolinian living in Sweden currently, and you are not only helping me plan an awesome "welcome home" hike but hearing that sweet southern twang makes me feel at home 🙂 haha (even though I don't have it)

Chris James says:

Dixie youre a dynamite gal.

Jump2218 says:

Do Frog Toggs wear out and lose their water resistance? I have been really wet in what was supposed to be rain gear. Can I reproof them somehow?

Mohawk Outfitters says:

My favorite hiking , backpacking, camping and just about everyday wear are the synthetic Reebok shirts and the outdoor synthetic pants by wrangler. Very lightweight and breathable. Thanks for the video great tips. This is Jerry from Mohawk Outfitters “Have Fun Out There”.

Paul LaRusso says:

I’ve been wanting to try that pad, hopefully now I can.

Rodney Steinbeiser says:

Been watching a lot of your videos. have gain a lot of valuable info. I have watch others also. don't know if you cover this topic, but would be nice if you could do a video on" Video on the trail". you are really in depth and for a geek like me, it would be nice to see all the in's and out's. Like camera vs phone, trekking pole vs the stick, any attachments, how and when best to down load, edit and post, what aps to use. hope you can help.

Preferably Stephen says:

Nice video(s) Dixie! You may have covered this in other videos. What do most hikers do at creek crossings? Do they stop and take off their shoes, switch to another pair, or just walk through it and have wet feet and shoes? What is the typical technique?

Sleepwalking Daydreamer says:

I like most of my old military clothes and now picking up military surplus too…
It's cheap, it's durable, and it's made for the outdoors…
And there's many layers and choices.
Gore-tex, nylon, polypropylene, polyester, therm-a-rest.

Silence says:

No cotton? Seriously? That's harsh for a blue jean wearing, flannel shirt lovin' Florida boy. Appreciate the knowledge though. That coulda been Ugly…lol

Traildog Adventures says:

If your going with a hiking kilt, don't get the outdoor companies wannabe go to USAKilts and get a casual kilt. It will be made for you, it will be a real kilt, and it's made from polyviscose which is another synthetic like polyester so you can just throw it in the washer with the rest of your clothes.
