fleeces---advice wanted

Welcome

Welcome Guest, to make a post on the forum you need to login or register.

Hi, I am travelling to Nepal--Himalyan Explorer on 21Nov, so expecding it to be warm during the day and cold at night, trying to decide on the layers needed- anyone recommend if I should go for merino wool base layer and icebreaker mid layer or stick to base layer and traditional fleece, or both will I need midlayer and fleece? Trying to save space in the backpack and don't want to take more than needed. Also for 16 days planning on 2 spare pair of trousers and 4 tops?
