Pretty keen for some input on my gear list. This would be for a 3 night tour camping at between 3500 - 4000m with nigh time temps between -20 and -35 degrees celsius.

One set of merino thermals for day
One set for sleeping in
Micro down jacket for touring with
Warm down for around camp
3L jacket and Bib pants
2 pairs of gloves plus merino liners
Headtorch
Alpkit Zhota 3 person mountain tent (split between 3)
Mountain equipment Everest bag with silk liner
Thermarest neoair x-therm
Primus omnilite Ti
1.5L fuel bottle
Snowpeak Trek 900
Spork
Micro towel
Small Medi kit with thermal blanket
2 Nalgene 1L water bottles
15L Snowpulse Pro rider in addition to Pack for all other gear


Interested to see what suggestions are on Boots for Camp. Options are either Sorel Caribous with wool liner to wear in sleeping bag or use Snowboard boots moving around camp and take in some Rab expedition down booties?

Any other suggestions of where i could cut weight some things i should add etc.

My camp footwear options usually depend on whether I am toting a bunch of other tech gear (rope, pro, etc.), but I usually opt for either: A) down socks to wear in boot shells with the liners removed, or B) down booties. I don't think you can justify the weight of the Sorels, and would opt for the RAB booties.

In terms of a light insulated layer for touring I would probably opt for synthetic vs. down. I typically use some combination of thermals, R1 hoody, Nano-puff pullover, and then either XR Flash or Neutrino Endurance as a down layer for camp/extended breaks. Different combinations of those items has been warm enough for the lower 48 and AK range.

I've got a North Face Catalyst Micro down. Theres a coating on the down to help it withstand moisture that seems to have worked so far plus its slightly longer in length than most offerings from other companies.

I guess I'll take both my Sorels and some booties on the trip and depending on the distance into base camp will weigh up if its worth it. I'll need my sorels on the trip regardless.

Another option would be to remove snowboard boot liner when returning to camp and replace with the wool sorel liner leaving the sorel shells back in town...?
