What to pack in an emergency kit, part 4

“Your best bet is to think of layering, which is the process of dressing in thin, but multiple layers of clothing. This technique gives you the maximum flexibility to deal with the different seasons,” he said.

Long sleeve shirts and pants will help protect you from bugs when outdoors and a belt may come in handy for other uses besides holding up your pants.
