    1. Wal-Mart. Cuddle Duds brand. My mom sent them to me for Christmas last year. I was stoked when I weighed them and discovered how light they were.

  4. I don't see any stove or cooking pot. What do you do for your food?

  5. Hey Anish, I am looking for my next thru-hike. I already have icebreaker shirt and pants as sleeping clothes and am happy but am thinking about switching to fleece to save weight. do you think fleece would be warmer? worth the 2 oz i would cut from merino wool? thanks and a huge congratulations on your accomplishment. i hope to meet you some day.

    1. I have used Icebreaker baselayers for the last 11 years and always been happy with them. I switched to the fleece for this trip just to save a couple of ounces. I think the fleece was as warm if not warmer than the wool. But, it smelled more, so there's that.

  6. What did you use for the external rechargeable phone charger? 3 ounces is pretty light for that.
    Thanks and congrats!
