I recently returned from a humanitarian dental trip to Samoa. It was a great experience. We treated nearly 1,000 native Samoans in the most remote villages we could reach. Great people and culture, beautiful scenery, a wonderful experience… enhanced by an Icebreaker t-shirt.
As a participant on the trip (this is my third year with the group – I provide ground support, helping set up and maintain our portable dental equipment), my one checked bag gets used for medical supplies and toothbrushes. That left me with a carry-on for my personal belongings (limited to 14 pounds), for a planned 11 day trip. I brought one set of clothes, snorkel gear, a first aid kit, electrolytes, emergency food, passport and a headlamp all in that carry on.
I climb and have a couple of Icebreaker pieces that I love to take to the mountain. But I had no idea that one of your t-shirts would do so well as a travel shirt in hot, humid equatorial South Pacific.
