  • PHD Gear Adviser - FAQs
    nearly always the best choice High Mountain Polar Expeditions There is much to be said for Short Zips But what about future trips Ultralight No Zip is the first choice Down vs Synthetic For anyone allergic to down the choice of insulation is simple you need sythetic For everyone else whether to opt for down or synthetic remains a question The arguments can be summed up quite simply For Down Down is much warmer weight for weight about double Down compresses better Down last longer For Synthetic Synthetic performs better when wet and dries quicker Synthetic is cheaper From these basic points it is clear that if you are going somewhere really wet you should seriously consider synthetic Anywhere else down has all the advantages For a fuller discussion of this topic see Technical Briefings Note In the the cold humid conditions of the Arctic there is a danger that the moisture coming from the inside from you will freeze inside your insulation This is equally true whether the insulation is down or synthetic and has to be countered by the efficient use of Vapour Barriers Other trips The main aim is to get the right gear for your present destination At the same time if you are considering more trips in the future it is worth taking them into account While it is simpler to take one trip at a time it may save money if you look ahead Going warmer Look at the note on Sleeping Bag Zips A full zip makes your mountain bag usable in the valley too Going colder If your next destination is likely to be colder then check it out on this website and see what gear is recommended You may find that there s an overlap with your current destination so you could cover for a colder trip without adding too much to weight and price For example The Baltoro 900 sleeping bag is listed as a warm choice for Kilimanjaro it is also named as a good choice for Aconcagua a colder mountain if that is in your sights Even if you are not going to any of our listed destinations the same applies to any two trips which are not too far apart in temperature just look at the gear tables and see if there are items which will cover you for both PHD gear is extremely light and quite often you will find that you can cover for a future colder trip as well as the current one and still end up with a remarkably light load One piece Down Suit versus Jacket and Salopettes Trousers The Poles and the 8000m peaks often bring up the choice between a one piece down suit and the combination of down jacket and salopettes or trousers These are extreme environments and if in doubt it is always worth asking advice from people who have already been to your destination To help you here is a summary of the main points involved One piece Down Suit Down Jacket Salopettes Protection Excellent Good Simplicity Excellent Good Weight Lighter up to 20 lighter Heavier Versatility One expedition Poor in changing conditions Good Versatility Future Use Poor Excellent A simple summary like this is not much help we know But it may be worth having the basic pros and cons staring you in the face while you work out which way to go When looking at Shell gear the reasons for considering a one piece windsuit are quite different Please look at the footnote in the Windchill section PHD Sizing Clothing The PHD Sizing Chart below is based on measurements without clothing exactly the way you would buy a shirt a sweater or a pair of trousers A 42 107cm chest means that your bare chest uninflated measures 42 Inside Arm is measured from armpit to wrist bone and Inside Leg from crutch to ankle bone If you find that you fall between or across these sizings please contact us and we will quote you for modifications needed And if you are supplying us with your measurements it is always useful for us to know your height even when you are only buying a jacket XS S M L XL XXL XXXL Height 155 163cm 5 1 5 4 164 170cm 5 5 5 7 171 178cm 5 7 5 10 179 186cm 5 10 6 1 187 193cm 6 2 6 4 194
