You got me curious, now I have to refresh my memory of what a toga looks like. Good Google, Go Fetch :D I'm thinking Roman garb.

Be back later.
Roman Toga/Tunic. I would look at you kinda funny also if I saw you on the trails wearing one. Not your ordinary gear wear :D

Tell us more about how you came about to want to wear this type of covering.

Native Americans wore loin cloths. How would I look wearing a loin cloth on the AT or any trail?

I take it you don't wear skirts. You wear skorts/coulattes. Plenty of fabric there to protect your privates. I don't think they make kilts that way. :?:

I'm old fashioned, I kinda stick to the thought of: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure
Actually, I do wear skirts, but also wear skorts as well. And guys, you can get Utilikilts with the fabric insert between the legs.....

Toga or bed sheet as I like to call it is often worn when car camping. most often worn early morning hours before dawning hiking shoes, very good for early morning stumbles around the campsite. LOL! :mrgreen:

Toga, kilt, skirt all same principle, LOL!

In the movie Animal House they looked pretty cool. I think I could do a toga around camp. :mrgreen:

Nice photo of your friend. good day for a hike.

He has done well to protect himself from head to belly button. After that he went astray. I can't help but to say something is wrong with his choice of leg protection. I know it's his choice, he will hike the way he chooses and so will we all.

All winter long here in Northern Illinois I see guys wearing shorts to make available to everones eyes there colorful tattos.

I'm old fashioned in some ways, and that's ok. 8-)

Many wear skirts and kilts I'm sure. On trails like this it looks like a little out of place. Skin about to get bruised.

Methinks you are waaayyy too worried ;) So what I don't get is: how do shorts protect you in ways that skirts and kilts won't? Considering I have worn pretty much every item on the trail, in all honesty it doesn't matter what I wear. If I fall, I fall. Nothing is going to stop the ripping of skin at that point, except for the luck or chance of stopping myself.
Blueberry bushes and trees grab you the same. Your trekking poles and shoes are more important...
