There it is, a big box covered in Outdorado tape waiting for me at the top of the stairs. Although I know exactly whats in it, I want to open it immediately. New stuff!
From our partner Outdorado we ordered Grivel Air Tech Light crampons, a Mammut Togir Click harness, the Marmot Never Summer sleeping bag, Therm-A-Rest NeoAir Xtherm sleeping pad and Rab Endurance Down Mittens. All light and super warm, thank you! We can’t wait to put them in good use!
The yellow tent, satellite phone and solar panel are property of the NKBV, we can use them during our expedition. Great for keeping us warm, charged and connected!
And finally, the shoes. We both were in need of a warm pair, suitable for this expedition. We couldn’t postpone this anymore, so after many hours of research, arguing and testing we bought the La Sportiva Batura 2.0. Excellent. They performed really well in Chamonix!
