Hi, We are hiking Mt. Kili in June and need some assistance with the layering. We have a basic pack list from the company but I was looking for something more detailed, so I've searched online. With the weight limit i'm trying to bring only what is necessary. I have used your pack list, but there are so many options. Regarding the mid weight down or synthetic parka, I've been reading the difference in the fill and weight with the down. For this layer we bought the Patagonia Down Sweater, which is 800 fill, but is only 80 grams. From what I'm reading, this is too light and won't be warm enough as an insulating layer. Do you have any recommendations for this layer?
Here's what we have so far...any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Top: Base layer (merino wool), fleece layer, Patagonia Down Sweater and hard shell (we bought the 3 in 1 jacket for the hard shell, water-wind proof with vents and it also has a light zip out jacket)
Bottom: Base Layer(merino wool), hiking pant, fleece pant and a hard shell(gortex). (some sites that i visited said that a ski pant would be too much. I'm concerned that we won't be warm enough on summit night with just a the base/fleece/hard shell.) Do you recommend an insulated pant?
Thanks so much.
