Yesterday I did some more shopping for more bits and bobs of equipment that will help make the best out of The World Photo Tour experience. So I’ve been to Cotswold again and this is what I dropped 200 pounds on:
- Pacific Outdoor Equipment Cruiser Mountain sleeping matt, a four season self inflating and water repellent one; it’s a bit short, as in it’s women sized, but when it’s freezing I won’t be needing that extra length since I’ll be cuddling in the sleep bag anyway;
- Silva Helios Stormproof lighter, no need to say more;
- Sea to Summit aircraft alloy cutlery; very, very light.
- Mountain Safety Research (MSR) Pocket Rocket canister stove; this one is a little monster;
- Go System butane propane mix canister;
- Petzl Waterproof Head Torch; no need for any other light;
- Vango Stainless Steel cook kit – two pots, one pan, ; yes, Vango again and again.
- Lowe Alpine Polartec gloves liner; adds to the comfort in sub-zero temperatures;
- Exped 22 l fold drybag; keeps everything inside dry;
- Trekmates Gore-Tex gaters; good for keeping the mud, snow and rain out and the lower part of the trousers clean; plus, they keep my ankles a bit warm as well.
- Icebreaker Merino Wool Socks. About these, once I stuck my feet in them it felt like heaven. And I could actually trace back where the fibre for my socks came from, and was a nice surprise as my path takes me there as well.
And that’s it for now.
