The recent cold spell in NH has given me the opportunity to test some of my cold weather gear in April. Yesterday I spent the day sledding and tonight I’m planning to spend the night outside. Here is some of the gear I used sledding and while setting up camp, as well as what I’ll be testing tonight:
- Katabatic Gear – Flex 22 Quilt (the overnight temps will push the limits of this quilt. Looking forward to seeing how it performs)
- Jacks R Better – High Sierra Sniveller Quilt (my backup plan if I get cold)
- Black Rock Gear – Original Down Beanie (with the low temps, this beanie will play a key role in keeping me warm)
- Darn Tough Vermont Socks – Various models, more details later
- WoolX – Lightweight Merino Wool Baselayers (will wear the lightweight hoodie as a baselayer)
- WoolPro – Agena Merino Longsleeve (will wear this over my Woolx lightweight hoodie)
My setup is similar to what I would carry on a shoulder season backpacking trip in the Sierra. As time allows, I will post my results, as well as more detailed notes on my setup at a later date.
