Cold Days Climbing - What to wear ? 8-Jun-2007 At 1:08:36 PM stuart h
I find cutting out windchill the most important factor in the trade off between warmth and movement. Cold weather climbing, skiing and alpine climbing I wear pants made of Schoeller (Dryskin etc) or some similar fabric (windproof, light, stretchy, sheds snow) and I often use an ultra-light windproof shirt. I got mine from MEC - the closest thing they have at the moment is called the Dervish or something similar. Macpac use to make a great pullover with a half length zip and a mix of windstopper and lightweight fleece panels that I use when it is not quite so unpleasant (most of the time). I wish they would make these again - the holes worn in mine undermine the windproofing.
