What woud you need for the next 80 days?

The Art of Layering

The idea is simple, every layer of clothing has a specific use that combine to keep you warm and dry.

2 Synthetic t-shirts - Sweat wicking and Sun Protection - next to skin layer. The job of all next to skin layers is to get the sweat away from your skin. So when you stop hiking/biking you don't freeze.
1 Wool long sleeve shirt - Sweat wicking and Sun Protection next to skin layer can be use alone or with a t shirt
Insulation Jacket - extra warmth for cold nights
Goretex Rain Jacket - a good breathable rain jacket. Pit zips are a must!
3 smartwool boxers - Sweat Wicking and odor resistant.
2 Padded Bike Shorts
1 Board Shorts
1 Smartwool long underwear - Sweat Wicking Warmth for the cold nights.
1 Zip off Pants
1 Goretex rain pants - Breathable, (not pictured)
3 Pairs of Smartwool socks - Odor resistant sweat wicking.
Clipless Biking Shoes
Walking Shoes
Flip flops.

Assuming that I'm waring one set of clothing here is the final packed look.
