26th-30th Big South Fork Trip on 12/24/2009 16:40:09 MST Print View

Hi everybody, i am posting this list to get some feedback from the forum to see if anyone thinks i am missing something as far as clothing goes.

Temps encountered will be: Lowest - 20 highest -40

Mix of freezing rain and possible snowfall in the range of 1-2 inches at most.

Distance: 40-50 miles, haven't decided which loop I will take yet.

Legs/Feet:
Suplex Nylon Pants
Icebreaker Merino 150 bottoms
Icebreaker Merino 200 bottoms
Dri ducks ultralight trail pants (waterproof+windproof)

Smart wool Adrenaline x2
Smart wool heavy hiking sock x2
Inov-8 Roclite 390 Goretex
Integral designs event gaiters
1 X-static liner
1 Cool-max liner

Torso/head/hands:
Smart-Wool heavy weight wool lonsleeve
Icebreaker merino 150 sleeveless shirt
Mont-bell Thermawrap jacket
Driducks Ultralight trail jacket w/ hood (waterproof+windproof)

Balaclava w/ insulated beanie
Nike mesh hat to keep rain out of face (driducks hood = bad)

Nike ACR Poleyster/Elastine gloves
Gore-tex mits

The combination of thermawrap + smart wool long sleeve + icebreaker short sleeve should take me down to the 30's, from there I think the driducks suit (being another windproof layer) should add 5-10 degrees to the torso, taking me down to the 20's. I also have a 2 JRB no snivelers (one tq one uq for my hammock). I can use one of these as top insulation if i HAVE to. Basically i want to avoid bringing my 30oz north face denali fleece jacket at all costs, as its a heavy burden. I do have a medium weight north face flight series polypro/elastine long sleeve pullover as well, but i am debating whether it is realy needed.

Suggestions?
