  1. Essential Kit For Spring Expeditions

    Leave a Comment

    On group expeditions you’ll probably have a porter or pack animal to carry most of your personal gear. Each day, you’ll only need to carry a daysack with what you’ll need until the evening. Obvious items are a water/windproof, water bottle and a warm layer. After those key items, it’s very much a matter of personal preference camera, snacks, notebook/pen, small first aid kit, spare socks, hat, gloves and so on. Of course, if you’re exploring independently, then you may hire a porter or find yourself carrying all your own gear. That’s when ‘lightweight’ really matters!

    Whatever style you choose, it makes sense to have a checklist of what you will probably need and take advice from your expedition company, if appropriate, on local variations. If you’re independent, then ask fellow explorers for up-to-date advice and tips from their own experience.

    Clothing should be flexible enough to cope with a range of conditions so layering makes sense, especially with fast drying materials. To get you started, here’s a useful list that you can readily add to and adapt to suit your plans.

    • Photocopies of your passport and other important documents
    • Tough, comfortable mountain footwear
    • Light sandals
    • Trekking  poles
    • Waterproof duffel bag
    • Daysack
    • Sleeping bag and liner
    • Warm hat
    • Wind/waterproof jacket
    • Polar fleece jacket
    • Thermal underwear
    • Thermal socks
    • Sunglasses
    • Gloves
    • Wash kit
    • Water bottle
    • Small first aid kit and insect repellant
    • Sun cream and lip balm
    • Head torch and spare batteries
    • Whistle

  3. Polar Fleece Jackets by Sub Zero

    Leave a Comment

    Sub Zero Polar Thermal Fleece Jackets are manufactured from super warm 300 Polar Polyester fleece. These technical fleece jackets have a velour anti-pill finish on the outside and a deep pile lambswool structure on the reverse for added loft and warmth.  The density of the fleece material also provides high wind resistance and the construction also aids wicking and moisture transportation away form the body.  The long cut of these fleece jackets in combination with the elasticated hem cord will protect your lower back from exposure under active conditions, whilst the two deep pockets give extra protection to the hands.

    Sub Zero has moved away from a Unisex design on these fleece jackets to produce both Male and Female versions. The womens design is more tapered down the sides with more area around the bust, whilst the mens design has a more box shaped construction with wider shoulder panels.

    These high performance polar fleece jackets are ideal for wearing with your thermal underwear as a complete layering system and as an extra insulation layer under waterproof jackets.
