I love wearing shorts. I want a comfortable pair that I can lounge in, sleep, walk, hike, etc. Also, it must have a few regular pockets that I can fit a phone, keys, wallet, etc.
Everything I've seen online is underwear tights, or for running (which have inadequate pockets, such as Icebreaker) .
Does anyone know of any everyday wool shorts?
You can find them if you look on ebay... it will be high end fashion designers and thus fairly expensive. A couple months ago when I was looking for a new pair of pants, I saw some awesome wool shorts on ebay.
Thanks for the tip, Tynan. You weren't kidding about the prices. I saw one pair of shorts going for $490!!! OMFG! O.o
For these prices, I think I'm going to buy some Icebreaker running shorts & customize them w/ pockets. Or perhaps I can purchase some merino wool fabric & commission someone to custom make some travel clothing for me.
Now it's time for the one post that everyone's been waiting for. The 2010 Gear Post.
For a quick background: my method is to have very few items, all of which are as small as possible and as awesome as possible. The goal is to have a tiny bag but be prepared for absolutely everything. This year I've gotten closer to that ideal than ever before. You can see my 2009 packing list here to compare.
The Bag: Ortlieb Flight 22
I decided to try sprucing up some shorts I had in my closet. Living in Korea is temporary so making sure you keep the amount of clothing you have to a reasonable amount is essential for easy packing when it’s time to go back home. I buy most of my stuff at the 1,000 won (one dollar) markets they have in Busan and Seoul. I grabbed three pairs of boring shorts and started a project at 2am.
I used hair ties, silly bands, and random ribbon in my apt to tie off the shorts. I folded them mostly in a fan style.. i wanted to create vertical stripes down the shorts.
I’m left with the gay blair witch project on my floor.
