Topic - 8000m Peak - Down Suit or Not?

Axel Smeets - on 26 May 2011

Evening all.

I'm just reviewing my kit cupboard with a forthcoming 8000m peak trip in mind (next year). I have a very warm down jacket, but no down trousers. Do I part with a large amount of cash for just the trousers or go a step further and part with an even larger amount for a full down suit? I may consider selling my down jacket to fund the latter option.

Anyone have anything to add regarding the pros and cons of a full suit or two part system? Have previously been to just short of 7,500m with down jacket and layered bottom half, but feel down is required for my bottom half for the next trip.

Advice much appreciated.

Cheers
