The fact is that if you fall in the creek or get caught in a rainstorm wearing cotton, it will not dry, and it will not keep you warm. It doesn't take a snowstorm and 0 degrees to get someone in real trouble in the woods.
I'm not saying you have to buy high end patagonia gear or anything, just have some sense. Bring along a wool sweater or some polypro longjohns. At the very least have a good warm sleeping bag.
Personally I wear nylon pants and shirt, and bring along wool longjohns and a raincoat. I also wear wool socks.
