Although my recent SOTA summit activation was an easy one, others will no doubt be more challenging and more exposed, with conditions perhaps changing quickly.
To that end, I can recommend a range of lightweight hiking and expedition gear from Terra Rosa Gear. The owner, Evan, is both an experienced expeditioner and mountaineer (and a History Channel TV star of ‘The Curse of the Frozen Gold’), and also manufactures a range of hand made ultra lightweight tarp shelters, Bothy shelters, custom made packs and bags, and a range of other useful gear including gaiters. The quality is staggeringly good and gets great reviews among the outdoors fraternity.
