My Background

To celebrate her 60th birthday Pam decided to take part in a trek to Everest Base Camp. Although it was the most difficult thing she’s ever done, both mentally and physically, the euphoria she felt when she achieved her goal of making it to Base Camp was worth all the drama of getting there. That trek was a turning point in her life and in April 2015 she returned to Nepal and the Himalayas to do the Everest Circuit Trek that saw her ascend Gokyo Ri (5,483m) and Kala Pattar (5,545m).

This new style sleeping mat has proved its worth. It's different but don't let that put you off - it's comfortable , lightweight and you don't roll off the edges. Definitely worth the investment. I've got the tapered version but if you like a bit more space down by your feet then this is the one for you.

Posted by Pam Lynch, on January 27 2016

Technically a base layer but buy it with a looser fit and you've got a great hiking top. Made from 50% merino and 50% Primino you've got the best of both worlds - the anti bacterial properties of the merino and the quick drying capacity of the technical fabric. I've hiked in it and it kept me cool in the sun and also meant no sunburnt arms.

We all know how indispensable dry sacks are when you're hiking. When I'm hiking everything goes in a dry sack and these smaller ones are ideal for phones and electronic gadgets or for any other bits and pieces that you need to keep out of the elements. It's not a question of do you need one but of how many do you need.

Now I know that we all like to appear hard core when it comes to getting out there and roughing it, whether it's camping, hiking, climbing or any other outdoor pursuit. But in reality we actually all like that little bit of comfort and the air chair is a perfect bit of comfort that it's easy to take on any adventure. Grab yourself a Sea to Summit sleeping mat and then grab this brilliant air chair to convert that mat into a recliner. Can't you just see yourself lounging in the air chair, beer (or juice or wine) in hand watching the sun set after a hard day of adventuring?

I'm a bit picky when it comes to shorts - I don't like them too short but, on my vertically challenged frame, I don't like them too long either. And, in the manner of the Three Bears and Goldilocks, these shorts were just right. I also like them to fit around my waist and not sit half way between hip and waist - and these sit exactly where they should. Add in a slightly stretchy fabric that sits nicely and a drawstring, should you need to cinch them in a bit, and they do the job perfectly for me.

I recently took my 80 litre Rolling Hauler on a trip to Melbourne. I've always used the standard suitcase before so wasn't sure how I would find this wheeled duffel - I must say I was really surprised and absolutely love the ease of packing and travelling with this bag (note: perfectly good suitcase now for sale). This size was perfect too - plenty of space to fit all the necessities but not too big that it becomes unwieldy - and the zip pocket at the end was perfect to hide away anything that you need easy access to. I dragged and lugged it up and down stairs and over pavement edges and I'm sure the airport handlers put it through its paces, but it came through with flying colours, looking as though it hasn't been used. Top marks for this piece of luggage and it will certainly be going places with me in the future.

But the guide is more than that, with stunning photos of the coast and the wild flowers you're likely to encounter along the way and valuable safety information. Reading through it while you're still in the planning stages of the walk will really wet your appetite.

I've had my long sleeved Primino top for a few weeks now and have come to love it. I first used it on a day walk on the Bibbulmun Track - the weather was cold and damp and the Primino served as a perfect base layer to keep me warm. I've just returned from doing the Cape to Cape walk and the weather on the first few days was variable. My Primino, used as a base layer, kept me warm on the chilly mornings but also served to keep the sun from my arms as the day warmed up. It's a soft, lightweight top that can be used in lots of different ways - I'v even worn mine into work and it looked great with jeans.

A good idea for those times when your sleeping bag just doesn't cut it. I wore thermals for sleeping in during my Everest Base Camp trek but still used the Thermolite Reactor for even more warmth and cosiness. I also found I didn't get 'tangled' in it as I sometimes do with my silk liner. The only down side would be the weight, which is usually a consideration when camping. I went for a lightweight sleeping bag and this liner comes in at a just over a quarter of the weight of my sleeping bag.

You know how sometimes you find yourself wearing something constantly and loving it but you've never questioned why you love it? These Icebreaker hiking socks fall into exactly that category. I bought my first pair around three years ago when I was training for my first Everest trek. I wore them all through training and two pairs of them came with me to Base Camp. Once I got home I wore them during the following winter here in Perth when I went walking and even put them on in the evening sometimes to keep my feet warm while watching TV. I wore and wore and wore them. Then I bought another couple of pairs when I did my recent Everest Circuit Trek and I find that they're getting subjected to the same rigorous use. The combination of Merino wool with some nylon and a touch of Lycra give a soft, comfortable feel with just enough stretch, they don't itch - at all - and they're odour resistant (perfect when you're sharing a tent). The medium weight cushioning underfoot is great for the comfort aspect. All in all, an ideal sock for long treks overseas, short hikes around the state and chilling out and relaxing after all that exercise.

This is one of the most versatile t-shirts that I have in my wardrobe. It's ideal in both warm and cold climates. I've worn this t-shirt by itself in the summer and as a base layer under my long sleeved merino top when I did my Everest Base Camp trek. It's performed brilliantly, helping to keep me warm in the cold Himalayan conditions, while the natural properties of the merino have helped keep body odour at bay in the summer. An ideal addition to any wardrobe.

The perfect all rounder.

Posted by Pam Lynch, on May 17 2013

I've found this to be a perfect all round water bottle, mine goes everywhere with me. The non spill bite valve makes it an ideal bottle for everyday use, for sporting events and for your more adventurous exploits. I've had my Eddy for over 2 years and it's been to work with me, to the football and high up in the Himalayas on my Everest Base Camp trek, and it's still going strong.
