We have a small, but significant list of gear we need for our trip, and we’re constantly vigilant about finding it, cheap, in our every day comings and goings. Well, Meena scored a sweet deal on one of those items last week when she found a pair of Sierra Design goose down booties at L.L. Bean for a mere ten smackers.
These beauties normally go for about $50, and finding them in a size that fits M’s tiny feet was the real trick. North Face sells down booties for $60-$70!
We’ll have our heavy boots, obviously, for the trek, but at the end of the day you want to slip your feet into something warm and cozy, but not heavy. They are 650-down fill with a heavy nylon non-slip sole for middle of the night bathroom breaks. They tie up snug at the ankle as well, so they’ll be good for inside the sleeping bag if extra warmth is needed. Best part is they weigh nothing and crumple up to the size of a tennis ball.
Dan will be on the look out for a pair as well.
Our gear list is pretty complete, really, but the things we still need are important: Meena needs a sleeping bag and Dan needs a new pair of boots and glacier glasses. We both need new trekking poles and down end-of-day down pants. But this was a great start!
