Clothing (not all of these items were carried all the time, that depended on the weather)
Berghaus kindly supplied us with the clothing for the expedition, which proved brilliantly warm in the winter and very comfortable. As the weather warmed, we gradually switched to warmer summer clothes.
Berghaus Tights (thin and thermal)
Berghaus Base Layers x 3
Berghaus Hiking Trousers
Berghaus Puffa Jacket
Berghaus Gloves (thin and thick)
Berghaus Gortex trousers
Berghaus Gortex top
Berghaus trousers (which legs can be zipped off to make them shorts)
Smartwool socks – comfortable and warm
Some locally produced fur hats and gloves
Sunglasses (which we were apt to break or lose fairly regularly)
We had no spare room to carry spare clothes, so on our days off would try and wash our base layers, whilst wearing our Gortex shells and puffas.
ECCO Xpedition II boots. Yak leather. These were both comfortable and very warm. We did get blisters when walking over 40km a day, but it was rare when we walked less than this. They kept our feet warm down to minus 30.
