Hiking Nepal, Gokyo lakes and Everest Base camp in April. Can someone recomend wat type of down jacket is suitable?
A light down jacket is more than sufficient. I would get something that is lightweight and around 800 fill. I brought an Arc'teryx Cerium LT Down Jacket, which 850 fill and weighs 8 ounces. Nepal is all about layering when the sun is shining in the mountains you'll be happy with just a tshirt. Make sure to bring a rain shell as well. over 1 year ago
I brought the new Osprey pack, the Levity 45L, and it was perfect. I love the suspension on the Osprey packs, super comfy. You definitely do not need more than 45L. In Nepal you don't have to carry a tent, food or cooking equipment so you want a nice and light pack over 1 year ago
Absolutely yes. I brought the steripen UV filter and it worked great. Traveler's diarrhea is rampant in Nepal; you have to be careful. over 1 year ago
