** An opinion on Outdoor wear
I personally prefer Polar Fleece. WHY? It dries. Wool stays wet and Down, while it may be great because of it’s light weight, Kodiak is a maritime climate and when Down gets wet, it stays wet just like wool.
There are no fashion police anywhere you are likely to frequent while aboard. Sweats, a pullover and good quality rain gear wear quite well.
If you pack carefully you’ll get it all in a single duffle bag, or your backpack and a hand carry.
While the Ten Bears has quite a bit of storage space, it is not unlimited, and if people bring multiple duffle bags or large roller bags of gear, personal space become a premium.
