"I did the Gokyo trek in Nepal and found the Minimus jacket invaluable for some very cold evenings; and the climb of Gokyo-Ri at about -10C degrees. It's kept me warm & cosy in some pretty extreme conditions". C.F.
Ultralight clothing and sleeping bags that will add hardly anything to your load, but a lot to your comfort.
Warmer bags and jackets for places where it will regularly dip below zero.
And for the coldest treks there is gear which will keep you warm down below 20C. If you are going somewhere even colder than this, take a look at our full lists of sleeping bags and insulated clothing.
