How to adjust the temperature easily? [Clothes for Mt.Fuji climbing]
If you go to climb Mt.Fuji, you have to think about outdoor clothes and gear which you wear , because the temperature is changed intensely in mountains, so you need to layers. Also, the wind ifcs very strong on Mt.Fuji. You need to adjust the temperature easily by wearing and taking off the clothes to prevent the strong wind. If you are going to sweat, you have to take off 1 piece. And if you feel cold, you have to wear 1 piece. Early, frequently!
Almost people say this is common sense of the mountains. That’s right. It is not wrong.
However, will it be beginners to change clothes quickly?
Actually you are already tired when you take off one piece or wearing it.
At such time,
1, put the backpack down
2, put out my changing clothes
3, wearing one more
4, and then carry your backpack
It is painful for beginners even if it is told to do this frequently. Beginners think that it’s tough to have not sweated yet.
Recommended items for beginners are warmer goods [Clothes for Mt.Fuji climbing]
Therefore, the recommended one is a warmer.
1, leg (shin) warmer
2, wrist warmer
3, neck warmer
4, knit cap
Cold comes up from the ankle and body temperature runs away from the wrist, neck and head. You will shut out 4 places with a warmer. Although each is small, it has an incredible insulation effect. It is warm.
And the biggest benefit is to feel free to take off if it is hot except for legs (you do not need to take off leg one almost).
You don’t need to put backpack down. Even while walking you will take off.
If you use a long wrist warmer that wears a short-sleeved polo shirt and reaches to the sleeve, you can reduce one long sleeve from your luggage. It is unquestionable if it is quick drying with UV cut.

- Warming your ankle.
If you’d like to climb Mt.Fuji, you might to bring the spats in one of the clothes.
