Travel Gear – Down Sweater

After weeks of research, I finally came to the conclusion that a down sweater would be an excellent piece of gear to bring along. It’s warm, lightweight, and highly compressible. All very important things to keep in mind when you’re going on a long trip through very cold areas…like the Himalayas. I got mine from Patagonia. I was going to get the hooded Rab, but I realized that the hood is unneccesary; it’s just extra weight for something that I wouldn’t even use. Also, I was able to get the Patagonia one online for far less than the retail price of 200 USD !
