Aviemore Probable Gear List

So, looking at conditions and weather, this is the probable gear list for Aviemore trip next week.

Looking at weather and conditions on the ground (we are NOT going very HIGH, since we are going up into the Monadhliath rather than the Cairngorms, I have decided to take some of the heavier  and warmer stuff.

The weights are carried weight and exclude worn clothing and also boots, since they are on my feet

The BOOTS might change depending or NOT on me acquiring a pair of these to use.

ECCO BIOM Terrain Boots

Boots should arrive on Monday….

They didn’t have those ones available, so the rather lovely Emma at ECCO, is sending me these ECCO Terrain 2’s

Same Boot, slight difference

But without that eventuality, here is the currently intended Kit List

I would like to go with a warmer bag (see later), but at the moment I don’t have anything warmer, so I will probably fluff up the old Rolling Clouds in the Tumble Dryer and go with that PLUS the extra Down Clothing, which will kick the temp rating do well below 0, especially on the Exped Mat.

That could change between now and next Tuesday.
BUT I am thinking mainly NOT.
Unless I can persuade Lucy to let me borrow her SUPER DUPER DOWN sleeping bag, that she used in the Himalayas, and that I paid a lot of money to have refurbished and cleaned.
WELL..
That ain’t gonna happen is it.
