Fish River in winter

Hi everyone. I’ve received conflicting feedback regarding the correct sleeping bag for doing the Fish end of July, ranging from a summer sleeping bag with a liner to a -5 sleeping bag. Please can I get some accurate inputs. Was planning on taking by First Ascent ice breaker.


If you were planning on taking your FA Icebreaker anyway then I don’t think you need to change your plans. It will almost certainly be overkill, but you can unzip it and use it as a blanket or as extra padding to lie on if it is warm. I don’t think you need to specially change your plans to take a summer bag.

Thanks. I also have a FA Amplify 900 synthetic. Will it be more suitable?

I would say that the Amplify will work fine for the Fish River :slight_smile:

MasterMo, can you give me meal ideas for keto/fat adapted? I’m facing a problem with keeping the protein from going off over a 5-6 day hike!

Thanks MasterMo, already doing some of these but going to try the meat vacuum packed!
