Good read!
After a tour where it was colder (5°C / 40°F) and raining constantly, my friend instantly bought an umbrella. He was sick of his rain jacket because it was not working as long as it is wet outsid...

Dish soap for down wash
I'm no expert, but dish soap is made to remove as much fat and oil as possible. Down is a natural product and as far as I know has a sensible film of fat or something similiar, wich has to be t...

Icebreaker Tech T Lite Superfine 140
My favourite, I could wear it the whole time. Best comfort in summer and winter. And you only need one for a 2-week-trip. Try to hang it in the wind instead of washing, and when you wash, wash insi...
