After three months of winter mountaineering I have spent the last couple of days reflecting on what went well and what I can improve on for next time. One thing that came up this year was the importance of having kit that fits you well, in particular your boots and your pack as this can vastly improve the comfort of your day out in the hills.
They say that saving a pound off your feet is equivalent to four pounds off your back!
Scarpa provides some very good information on its website on boot fitting.
It is also worth spending some time considering fitting your rucksack correctly so the weight is supported using the hip belt and chest strap to take the load off your shoulders.
