You'd think packing for hot weather would be easy, but it comes with its own set of challenges.
First off you have to consider if you are going to a humid climate like in southeast Asia like Thailand of Vietnam or you
are heading to a dry location in Europe. For dry climates pretty much anything goes and you can get await with
packing your lightest pieces of clothing. Humid climates require a bit more thought and planning.
Packing for Humid Weather
For humid weather any heavy fabrics like cotton or jeans are going to collect more moisture and become heavy and sticky.
Walking around any part of the world with a high heat and humidity with heavy fabrics on is going to miserable. Consider linens, merino wools or synthetic
fibers for humid conditions. The looser the better.
If you are truly one bagging then your most limiting factors is going to managing laundry the best you can. Heat and humidity = sweat, which equals
smells. Sometimes a quick and easy laundry place is just around the corner but a lot of times you are on your own. You can stretch four pairs of underwear
five or six days in a dry climate, but in a humid location those four pairs may only last four, or less, days. Consider shaving off a shirt for an extra pair or
underwear or socks.
