When taking off for a hike during the winter one always has decisions to make. Do I start off wearing extra clothes knowing that in 10 minutes I will have to stop and shed layers? Or do I start off with fewer clothes knowing that, once hiking, I will warm up comfortably. In either case extra clothing will end up in my pack for the majority of the hike.
