I thoroughly enjoy time outdoors, but I do like to be comfortable. There are various so-called “reality” TV shows out there that are so gimmicky they make me laugh. The one about people surviving in the outdoors is so laughable I cannot understand why it is even broadcast. I am an advanced photography hobbyist, and I have never even considered going afield in the buff or even close.
Instead, I prefer outdoor clothing that will protect me from the things I encounter in the wild. I cannot imagine being outdoors at dawn or dusk in a mosquito area without protective clothing. I have been in places where flies and mosquitoes swarm. I have had my pants covered in flies during a particularly bad year for them while visiting a major lake on the east coast, and I have been close to swampy areas with mosquitoes ready to bite as soon as you stepped from the bright sunlight into the shade.
I go out when it is raining and snowing too. I wear outdoor clothing designed to protect me for the weather and the region I am visiting. When I am photographing animals instead of landscapes, I wear camouflage for the specific area I am working in. I have enough practice to become invisible to animals. The gear helps me a lot, but learning how to control motion helps even more. All animals detect motion better than they do anything else visually. Then there is scent. Wearing outdoor clothing designed to minimize scent is also useful. Technology is my friend when it comes to the cameras and the clothing I wear when I am out taking pictures.
I like quality gear that will hold up in nature. My camera is sealed against dust and moisture, and I like to stay comfortable and dry in my clothing. I do not like gimmicks, I just like stuff that works and works very well.
