Mostly cool weather hovers most of the year here so I should have no trouble wearing the Hybrid or Odin Traverse Pants. The latter I would consider being in the rain pants category so they wouldn't be worn as often but still should get plenty of use as we get more than enough rain. I would prefer the Hybrid pants but I will test either one more than adequately.
Needless to say I have never had any trouble meeting the five-night requirement. I backpack often and take many types of trips including both weekenders and lengthy trips. My usual haunts are Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Isle Royale
National Park and many areas of the Hiawatha National Forest all in Michigan. If the test goes into early September I will be doing the entire Wonderland Trail in the State of Washington.
Temperatures will fluctuate but the next
several months should be anywhere from below freezing (0 C) to as high as 85 F (30 C). Clouds,rain and sun are all common. Elevation is less than 2000 ft (610 m) for the Michigan trips.
