Sleeping bag SilkLiner with arms should be on every mountain tour packing list

Sleeping bag SilkLiner with arms should be on every mountain tour packing list

We all rely on mountain huts when we tour in the mountains, to save the weight of tent and food. However, a hut is not a hotel and a minimum of equipment is still required to spend a comfortable night there. Apart from all the required clothes and gear for mountain tours, consider this additional special

PACKING LIST

  • Our special SilkLiner with arms is obviously most practical to allow you freedom of movement in the bunkbed, around the hut and a comfortable sleep with unrestrained arms. The bottom opening allows you to lift it up and run around in seconds, without having to crawl out of it.
  • Earplugs are the best insurance against noise and snoring, and there's always someone snoring. Bring a few more pairs to auction to the highest bidder.
  • Thermos bottle, as most huts offer to fill hot tea (or cold drinks, depending on season) to bring out in the morning. 
  • Spare power banks for phones and gadgets, as electricity and sockets may be rare at some huts
  • Toiletry set, some eco-freindly soap, toothbrush, microfibre towel and other things you may need. The standards of huts vary and things can run out, so better be independent.
  • A deck of cards or small pocket game for the days you're stuck in the hut because of adverse weather. A collection of e-books on your phone also saves weight.

Oh, and DON'T bring plastic bags, please! The most annoying noise we ever hear is the rustling of dozens of people at 3am packing and re-packing their stuff in small plastic bags. Horrible! Use soft nylon bags or noiseless dry-bags instead and have a raincover for the whole backpack.
