Review: Saratoga Lightweight Bottoms

For the past two years, I have worked for the U.S. House of Representatives serving the constituents in the most professional manner. Politics and service to others is in my blood. I have had a wealth of experience in my young life and I always have sought out ways to challenge myself and take risk.

In all of my years of hiking I can think of only two shirts I’ve purchased specifically for my time on the trails. Both were long-sleeved hooded shirts purchased for sun protection (I am a bald guy, after all). When hiking in hot weather, I’ve always worn free shirts collected from various running races. This is because I am, ahem, thrifty, and figured it didn’t really matter what shirt I was hiking in because it would just get sweaty and stinky anyway.
