Jillian’s Clothes

From top to bottom here’s what Jillian is wearing around the world: (click on the review tag to see what she thinks!)

  • Tops
  • Bottoms
    • Columbia Sportswear Silver Ridge III Capri – Women’s (1) – cute, functional and comfortable although the zipper has broken on these things in the same place twice… but I’ve had them forever and love them!
    • *ExOfficio Insect Shield Convertible Pant These are the best i’ve seen in convertible pants. They actually fit and feel like real pants, not some weird parachute material that swishes too much. They feel soft, and did I mention the fit? Perfect for a safari or a long, dusty bus ride.
    • Royal Robbin’s Global Traveler Skirt- Needed something a bit longer and more conservative as we move towards northern africa and central asia.  This fits the bill and actually its not too horribly looking.  Two long zippers on the side actually allow the fabric to breath and its comfortable to boot!
  • Feet
  • Everything Else
    • The North Face Spire 40 Pack – 2380cu in
      – downsized to something smaller with a bottom opening for the rest of the trip.  Too new to review yet!
    • Sierra Designs Hurricane JacketAlthough we loved the REI one jacket, it wasn’t what we needed to combat the weather.  We opted to exchange the fleece lined REI jackets for a rain coat and a regular fleece.

Previously used and reviewed:

  • Jillian's PackGregory Women’s Jade 50 Backpack – This holds all of my stuff. Specially designed for the curves of a woman to put the weight in the right spots. Slightly smaller than Danny’s pack but otherwise it is basically the same thing. review
  • The North Face, Horizon Women’s Convertible Pants – I finally broke down and bought convertible pants. They’re ugly, but they’re practical.
