    Ladies Only: SHTF / Bug Out / Camping Clothes

    Hi Ladies....and can we get a roll call?! I'm looking for some good ideas for summer clothing. Camping type stuff. Where do you shop? The clothes my daughters and I normally wear really aren't suitable for camping or an SHTF situation. Please include links if you have them. Thanks!!!

    My clothes are basically the same year long. Wranglers and a t-shirt. Or a tank top in the heat. :D. Wranglers are tough material, not wimpy city clothes like Levi's have turned into. You can actually...do stuff in them!

    I am with Indie....most of my clothing is jeans (Wrangler, Carhartt, Dickies), t-shirts, tank tops, cut off jeans in the summer when I am out working in the yard. My shoes are hiking boots, Romeos, Keen's and Muck boots. I also have several flannel shirts (mostly Carhartt) for chilly mornings.

    Don't get me wrong, I do have some girly clothes for when I go out of the house, but most of my days are spent working around the homestead, so I definitely have more work clothes than cute stuff

    Thanks!

    My go to clothes are either comfortable dresses or yoga pants or if it's hot-hot, bike shorts if I'm being slouchy.... My girls are mostly in shorts and sun dresses these days. For the kind of camping we do, these are okay, but if the S. really hit, we're gonna need something more sturdy. I'm liking the idea of cargo pants 'cause they have pockets. Other than my coats and jackets, none of my clothes have pockets.

    Wife says to go look at a big box outdoor clothing store and ignore the mens/ ladys signs Head for the boys in pants and shorts. If it fits, you like it, get it. In Bass Pro they have pink, baby blue shirts in the "men's" department . So what is men's and what is women's / what difference does it make ? Years ago she would be in a women's specialty fashion store but now days it is all about function.

    The women's pants/ shorts can have fake pockets and things just for looks ignore that . Look for form , function. Running /workout gear especially quick dry in the women's department is good . Sports bras are what she wears unless dressed up . Loose fitting nothing tight.

    Duluth trading company has some good stuff.

    Oh yeah, that's another thing about "girly" pants - the friggin' pockets! What is with the pockets?! I have a very small pocket knife and that takes up the pockets of my Levi's. Meanwhile, I can stick my whole flat hand in my Wranglers, along with all the accoutrements of a country lifestyle and still have room for a hip holster with no scrunching.

    And for footwear, I agree on Keens, but I recently bought a pair of Ariat Fatbaby boots and they're the bees knees. I'll probably never wear another shoe. Get the right dresses and they dress up just as well as they dress down.

    Is this not the truth? Can't even tell you how many knifes I have lost bending over and having them pop out of my pocket!

    I never wear shorts because ticks can attach themselves to your skin, so thin leggings all the way. Thin simple cotton tops, sports bras and a baseball hat, that's all I need. Bought all of the above (except for Nike sports bras) at some no name shop, it's all very generic, cost me barely anything and it folds very small.

    Hips and waists don't measure up the same on men's pants as on ladies. But I'll check out Bass Pro, thanks!

    You have a point in terms of comfort and carrying a light load in your pack. I can see the benefit in terms of comfort and affordability. I'm just thinking that leggings and yoga pants are very lightweight and if you're dealing with SHTF and you have an accident and you slip and fall, chances are pretty good you'll have a flesh wound, too.
