I've been fighting for a little bit now and i've been noticing that it gets hot really quick. a friend gave me a great tunic but i still need something for the bottom that will keep me relatively cool. any suggestions?

Re: breathable garb


I work in the medical field and I can tell you that scrub pants are very lightweight and comfortable. You can get them in almost any color and from my experience draw-string scrub pants look very authentic. Now I am also very new to Dagorhir so you will want to ask around to see if they are acceptable garb, but if they are they would deffinetly keep you cool.

Wrap pants are also very breathable being as they don't have actual sides. You just wrap the fronts and back together. They are also extremely easy to make.

Re: breathable garb


I am going to school for costume design and if you are looking for breathable try linnen. It’s a little more exspensive than most fabrics but it breathes really well. You could also look for 100% cotton, but remember that cotton will shrink, so do not put it in the dryer. The fabrics that don’t breathe well are man-made fibers. Although if it’s under 50% and mixed with linnen or cotton chances are that it will breathe ok.
 Wrap pants are really easy to make and there are a lot of tutorials online.

Re: breathable garb


Wear natural fibers like Linen and (this is going to sound crazy) wool. Natural fibers breathe and since you are going to sweat regardless of what you are doing in Dag, why not sweat in something that you can feel the wind through and doesn't trap in your body heat.
