Mer­ci­fully, the team made sure I was out­fit­ted prop­erly for my chal­lenge. First up, the Salomon X Ul­tra Trek GTX hik­ing boots (salomon.com) are lightweight, have a sup­port­ive high an­kle and are wa­ter­proof. The Arc’Teryx Beta AR Jacket (snowan­drock.com) is equally wa­ter­proof and also wind­proof thanks to cut­ting-edge Gore-Tex Pro. Patag­o­nia’s Storm­front Pack 30L Back­pack (patag­o­nia.com) kept my gear dry and made the weight com­fort­able. Fi­nally, the Cool-Lite Mira Pullover Hoody (ice­breaker.com) gave me a merino wool base layer of warmth (and it was comfy as any­thing).
