EXPEDITION EQUIPMENT

Expedition equipment is not only my comfort but also my lifeline. In arctic summer and winter conditions I rely on my tent to shield me from storms, and my stove to melt my drinking water and heat my food. I only use equipment that I trust to keep me comfortable and safe in great outdoors.
