Ok, so this one is going to be short and sweet (yes, I know, not like me at ALL!).
I hike in my jeans. This is not good. Jeans get wet and sweaty and hold all that moisture in and don't dry. They are heavy. They chafe if they don't fit well. They are not good hiking wear.
So why do I wear them? Because I can't find a FLIPPIN' pair of proper hiking trousers that fit, that's why! In the hiking world, an XXL is a UK size 18 (US size 16), for crying out loud!
I realise that hiking wear may not sell so well in the size 20+ category, but there are customers out there (like me!).
Oh, and while we are at it.... could I get some gaiters that fit too? I may have calves wider than Kate Moss' waist but I'd still like to keep them dry. Especially since I am wearing JEANS!!
Thank you. And good night.
PS I had a really good hike today... !!
