Most research investigating hill walking has focused on the mechanisms of accidental hypothermia with protocols involving males exposed to prolonged wet and windy environments . No attention has been paid to discomfort associated with the different phases of recreational hiking in non-adverse conditions. The present study was designed to evaluate overall and local thermal strain during a typical hiking scenario and to highlight potential differences between males and females. This knowledge can be of practical importance for improved clothing requirements
