Packing List

Packing List

(for 2 day tour)

Clothing: Temperatures can vary between +40F and -20F, so it is best to be able to put on and take off clothes as needed. "Layering" is the best way to maintain a comfortable body temperature during alternating periods of activity and rest. A hooded parka assures total comfort during long breaks.

Recommended Fabrics: Wool, polyester pile, thinsulate, down or synthetic down (polarguard, Hollofil, Fiberfill, etc.) for outer clothing. Wool, polypropylene, or similar materials that "wick away" body moisture are best for inner clothes.

Insulated Boots: Rubber-bottomed, leather-top boots with full foot felt liners are best. The best known maker is "Sorel". They should be large enough to wear with 2 pair of heavy wool socks. Bring an extra pair of felt liners.
