Testing Cold Weather Gear, April 4 & 5 2016

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:


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.
