Night Rounds

When I finish setting up camp, I change into a pair of hospital scrubs. Made of a cotton/polyester blend, they weigh almost nothing and are extremely quick-drying. Find them at uniform stores or online at allheart.com. Greg Clark

<a href="http://shop.advanceweb.com">Medical uniforms and nursing scrubs</a> are surprisingly light. I never thought to pack them for a camping trip.

I don't want to hear that it weighs "almost nothing"!!! My backpack is full of gear that weighs "almost nothing" and it weighs too much! How much does it weigh!?!

---Agree---

Too Many Scrubs
Sep 18, 2008

One pair of basic top/bottom scrubs will weigh slightly more than a pair of heavy socks and pack nearly the same size.
