    Looks good,I prefer a good strong head torch for winter,just in case you have to leav3 or move camp in the night,I’d prefer to have down pants but I like to spend time outside at night taking pics or just strolling about camp watching the sky

    I was thinking of swapping the Olight for my Zebralight, or maybe just chuck it in as well, an extra 75g shouldn't hurt, too much. I like the e+Lite to wear in the shelter and around camp, it's so light you don't really notice it's there, and it goes round my neck at sleep time. The Zebralight is great but it gives me a headache after a few hours.

    I've got some Prism pants but I don't think it's just cold enough yet, I might regret that decision. I'm not too sure what the plan is yet but as I need to be back fairly sharpish on Sunday so I won't be camping too high I shouldn't think.

    Nice list :)

    Do you walk with merino leggings on underneath your montanes?

    Yeah, I'm a bit of a minger for that, I wear leggings for 99% of my trips

    With Thermos it's snug to around 10*C, much over that and it gets unpleasant, they have 3/4 zips and poppers so they do vent pretty well for the climbs

    Don’t think so, I had very similar low rated cloathing at Brecon a couple of weeks back
    and it dropped to zero.
    All depends on how much energy you use and to what if you wear all of it and if so what does it all equate to and your environment.

    Very interested in this subject.
