Tech­ni­cal cloth­ing can make your moun­tain trek safer and eas­ier

Australian T3 - - MAN VS TECH -

Mer­ci­fully, the team made sure I was out­fit­ted prop­erly for my chal­lenge. First up, the Salomon X Ul­tra Trek GTX hik­ing boots ($260, salomon.com/au) are light­weight, have a sup­port­ive high an­kle and are water­proof. The Arc’Teryx Beta AR Jacket ($819.95, bo­gong. com.au) is equally water­proof and also wind­proof thanks to cut­ting-edge GoreTex Pro. Patag­o­nia’s Storm­front Pack 30L Back­pack ($399.95, patag­o­nia. com.au) kept my gear dry and made the weight com­fort­able. Fi­nally, a merino wool base layer like the Tech Top Long Sleeve Half Zip ($149.95, au.icebreaker. com) gives much needed warmth.
