“I just completed an unsupported trekking traverse of the Himalayas this past week. The hike was over 2,600 kilometers and a whole lot of elevation gain and loss, at least the equivalent of summiting Mt. Everest over 20 times. I hiked from the easternmost 8,000 meter peak to the westernmost 8,000 meter peak averaging about 40km per day and hiking for the past three months.
Thanks to Icebreaker merino I was able to wear the same baselayers for the entire trip only washing them out in creeks and rivers, never even using soap! Three months, 10-15 hour hiking days through hot and humid and cold and snowy, and using only 2 shirts and 1 pair of boxers!”
