Fleece blouse 200 - 1 und

Fleece is a type of fabric with high heating power, low weight and good compression.

There are several types of feather jackets, and many are NOT FOR OUTDOOR SPORTS. For more information contact our team. If you do NOT want to invest, it can be replaced by a regular sweatshirt, but it is highly NOT recommended because it is heavier, bulky and slow to dry if it gets wet.

ACCESSORIES

50 to 60L cargo backpack

It is not necessary, in a script of up to 4 days, to have a backpack with a liter of more than 60L. If this list does not fit in this space, it means that you need to exchange for specific items for mountaineering, which are more compressible. If possible, opt for models that are adapted for camelbaks. If you make the expedition-style trip, an attack backpack between 35 and 40L will be enough.

Headlamp

Having the freest as well as the most comfortable is a matter of safety if you have to go on a more technical stretch with low light. In some itineraries we make a short attack on the summit in the late afternoon to catch a glimpse of the sunset, and the descent ends up being at night. If you make a point of not investing in this item, it can even be replaced by a cell phone flashlight, but it is NOT RECOMMENDED.
