FWIW Zelph, out of 20 -20 trips per year I wear shorts while hiking at least 95% of the time.

Some of the trails I hike are rough indeed. Haven't taken the plunge on kilts yet, even though my ancestry is mostly Scottish.

When you do decide to do the plunge, go leather(chamois) Lightweight, that's what bplite is all about ;)

I wear Levi's , regular cut, on all my treks. :)
Well, didn'tcha know cotton kills? :o

:P (Hah! I wear cotton in summer, I prefer the feel!. Ok wait, I wore cotton yesterday and enjoyed it. In the rain.) Don't think though I'd hike in jeans. Too tight for hiking :shock:

I used to do a lot of trail blazing with my cousin around my parents house he use to think I was nut because I always wore shorts. But I never got poison anything just a bunch of scratches from the briar bushes boy did they burn when I took a shower when I got home but I always hiked in shorts it never changed my mind a bit after a few times the scratches didn't even hurt to get them anymore and you'ld never know that I did that by looking at my legs you can't see any scars from that. When I'm hiking now I still usually wear shorts mostly it's open trail any ways. If I plan on doing scouting I usually wear BDU's but only if it's cold out wouldnt give up my shorts for nothing and I could definately see my self wearing a kit but I can't see dropping all that cash on one just to wear it through the woods when I already own enough shorts to last me my hiking career. I would definately wear it though if someone got it for me for christmas or my birthday,LOL! :mrgreen:
