Recent tweaks and changes in my packing list for Kilimanjaro Lemosho

Since Kumano Kodo hike and Jordan trail hike, these are the key tweaks/changes I made:

  • Although I already own a Thermarest Questar and Thermarest Cowboy, I bought a new Thermarest Oberon (warm till 0F/-18C) to be ready for Kilimanjaro cirumstances.
  • I bought a simple wide brim hat with Decathlon that should protect my face and neck from the sun.
  • New Black Diamond Mercury Mitts for the last cold push to the summit.
