What Do I Wear ?
Clothing, Footwear, Gloves, etc....
The attire for ballooning is casual. To maximize your enjoyment, dress appropriately for the weather on your scheduled flight date. On cooler days It is recommended that you dress in layers to increase your comfort. For your safety, we require you wear athletic shoes and long pants. You may be climbing in and out of a basket. Open toed shoes, high heeled shoes are not permitted. Also you may be required to walk in wet/cut grass, therefore your best footwear would not be the favorite choice. Shorts are not recommended. Due to heat generated by the balloon, a hat is suggested for very tall passengers. Occasionally on higher humid days, the burners drip condensation (Water) sometimes that water has some soot in it, so we'd recommend darker shirts or shirts that you wouldn't care if it gets a spot on it. We've never had any issues getting it to wash out, but have not tested with all clothing materials.
A lot of people ask, "Is it cold up there?" Typically, the temperature difference is 3.5 - 5 degrees less per 1000' and we occasionally fly as high as 3000' but an average flight, we fly to about 1000 -1500' therefore if the outside temp is 70 degrees on the ground, it will be around 65 degrees while flying up high.
