So you wore polyester long john pants and found them cooler than nylon pant=
s? Or are you not talking about pants, but about clothing fabric in genera=
Because I will probably bring a coolmax polyester s/s top as well as a nylo=
n or silk l/s top, which I think will work great, but I'm still trying to f=
igure out pants, because you want them to be more durable as well as breath=
And I was thinking cotton would be cooler in high temps because of the fact=
that it stays wetter longer and is breathable/durable. And if conditions =
are wet, just use rain pants over them or switch to long johns + rain pants=
. And if weather is cool and dry, body heat will dry them out while wearin=
I know most people opt for nylon pants, but they feel sticky and awful to m=
e when it's hot, like wearing plastic. Also, my nylon convertibles got ton=
s of snags all over them the last time I took them backpacking.
Still thinking I'll go with cotton, maybe keep a pair of nylon converts in =
my bounce box. Still listening if there are more comments.
Thanks so much for the input,

I opted for polyester in the form of CoolMax (which is a polyester thread
with a special shape).
I think that polyester is more comfortable than polyamide (Nylon). The
coolmax version drys very fast - the thread shape has more surface area to
evaporate moisture and increase cooling.
All that is gold does not glitter,
not all those who wander, are lost....
