I have noticed that in several threads people say that you can get cheaper clothing at X store. Or you can get just as good quality for cheaper if you look around.

I am wondering though what you would look for when shopping for clothes? So far all my backpacking is planned for June - September(Maybe October depending on weather). We will mainly be staying in the Uintas and up into the rockies around southern Idaho.

Also is there anything you recommend treating your clothes with before using them for backpacking(do you waterproof? Permethrin?)

A tent is a bad place for an argument, because when you are angry you walk out and slam the flap. How are you supposed to express your anger in this situation? Zip it up really quick? ~Mitch Hedberg
