Background: I started backpacking in Wisconsin as a youth, being
involved in the Boy Scouts programs. As a young adult, I worked at a
summer camp leading backpacking, canoeing and mountain biking trips. I
now generally take short weekend or day trips in rough, mountainous
terrain, although I have extensive experience in the upper Midwest as
well. I take one or two longer trips each year, where I typically carry
about 40 lb (18 kg). I prefer to be prepared and comfortable, but I have
taken lightweight trips as well.
3) Test Plan
Over the testing period I
will take roughly two trips per month ranging from 1-2 nights. My winter camping takes me to the top
of 14,000 ft. (4,267 m) peaks as well as high alpine lakes, just for
kicks! My plans will take me to several base camp locations near several
peaks where I will hike, summit, descend and repeat. I�ll see
snow, high winds and temperatures as low as 0 F (-18 C) but perhaps as high as 70 F (21 C)
along steep trails, scree slopes and all sorts of nasty environments. Hiking
in the Rocky Mountains makes me sweat, even in the winter. Having a good base layer is essential to having
a good experience. I like that these are
rated for cold conditions, as I may see much colder temperatures with wind-chill
factored in! I like my base layers to fit snug, but not be too confining. I�m also interested to see if they retain
odors and how well the fabric holds up over time.
