Over the Anzac weekend the family and I took a walk in the Snowy Mountains. The minus 8ºC overnight tested my Helium 600 sleeping bag, but adding Mont Flashpoint Pants and Zero Down Jacket over Power Dry Silk Weight Thermals I was cozy. The little alpine tarn near our tents froze over to about 2cm thick; starting to look and feel wintry!
