I'm planning a three weeks trip to Iceland in July and I'm concerned about what kind of clothes I need to bring with me. I don't have a rigid schedule, so this may vary, but right now I'm thinking about hitchhiking on the Hringvegur, taking day trips for simple hiking during the stops.
According to the wiki page the average July temperature in the southern part of the island is 10–13 °C which is quite cold for my likings. Obviously temperature isn't the only factor and it's important, for example, considering the mean precipitation days which should be around 10 days in July. And what about winds?
Another nasty problem is that usually winter clothes are heavier and bigger than a pair of flip flop and a bathing suit which is annoying when you try to pack lightly.
I also tend to over-cover myself when it's cold, which is not very good when it comes to hike because I usually sweat a lot even if out it's way below zero.
So, from hat to shoes what would I need to survive the Icelandic weather in July and be able to face small hikings without travelling with too much stuff?
