Pack for the Desert, Tucson: 7 reviews and 3 photos

by matcrazy1

Luggage and bags: No bags in hot summer except one for your camera, good (safe) pockets (or comfortable belt) instead. Small city rucksack for warm winter.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Light clothes (shorts, T-shirts, better too large :-) made of natural materials (cotton) for warm/hot days all year round.
Sweater/pullover and/or jacket for cold evenings/nights (from November till April).
Shoes? Oh, yes - you should have them :-). Sandals, trainers or good walking shoes.
Add sun glasses.

Check the 10-day forecast for Tucson:
The Weather Channel

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Good sun protection cosmetics with high UV filter - use them BEFORE or just after you leave your car.

Photo Equipment: Be prepared for large contrasts between sun and shadow - sun filters recommended. Add hmm... how do you call it in English - something fixed to your camera objective to protect it against sun - not comfortable to carry but necessary, I suppose.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Tourist frige with ice cubes and cold beverages inside :-).

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
