A good waistcoat or gilet will protect you from sun and wind, and provides easy access to kit. This Páramo Halcon Waistcoat is ideal for warm-weather shooting, and has 12 pockets to stash stuff. Base layers should be stretchy, fast-drying and lightweight. Opt for breathable materials, such as merino wool, or technical fabrics with wicking properties. Bottoms should help you stay cool but provide protection from UV and insects. Some outdoor trousers feature a zip just above the knee that enables you to turn them into shorts in seconds.
