1 ANI PERSONAL CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT LIST for Ski South Pole Messner Start & Ski South Pole Hercules Inlet Expeditions ANI Adventure Network International The objective of the equipment list is to guide you to making appropriate clothing and footwear choices for your expedition. There are a number of criteria to be considered: low temperatures down to perhaps -35 C (-3 F), a large temperature range with maximum temperatures up to -5 C (23 F), and a prevailing headwind. Skiing whilst towing a sled generates heat so on some days not much insulation will be needed but in general a windproof outer layer and complete face protection is needed. It is useful to be able to regulate temperature without having to take the outer windproof layer on and off. It is also important not to be too hot as sweat will freeze later. This can be achieved by a combination of selecting appropriate midlayers each day, venting, and by adding an insulated body warmer on top of the shell clothing when more warmth is needed. Face, hands, feet and thighs are especially vulnerable to cold injury. Pay particular attention when choosing boots, gloves, mitts and face/head coverings. The suggested items are examples of products that meet the recommended criteria. Use them to compare specifications with your existing equipment or to find equivalent products from manufacturers available where you live. They are not intended as a prescribed or must-buy list. Where you are unsure of suitability please ask. It is essential that you have suitable equipment for this challenging expedition. Bring all items on list (other than those listed as optional). If in doubt, please contact us for further advice. # Item Description Outer Clothing 3-4 Down Parka Size to fit over other clothes, the parka does not need to be warmest model but should be expedition quality (rated to -35 C/-3 F) with a generous secure hood. [US Suggestions: Feathered Friends (Icefall Parka), Mountain Hardwear (Sub Zero SL Parka), and Marmot (Greenland Baffled Jacket). Europe Suggestions: Mountain Equipment (Annapurna), Mountain Hardwear (Sub Zero SL Parka), PHD Designs (Xero) and RAB (Neutrino Andes).] Windproof Outer/Shell Jacket Your jacket should be made from a windproof, breathable (but not waterproof) fabric with generous hood and pockets. A jacket long enough to cover your thighs is too long (do not depend on your jacket for leg protection), but long enough to keep your lower back warm. The best fabrics are non -waterproof microfibers as they are more breathable than hard shell fabrics such as event or Gore-Tex. Also soft shell jackets that have a Windstopper in them are good. Ventile is an ideal fabric. Buy and sew a fur ruff to the inside edge of jacket hood. The Bergans Expedition Antarctic Jacket, and its matching Antarctic Expedition Salopette, are ideal garments, specially designed for this purpose. [US Suggestions: Baffin Soft Shell Hooded Jacket. Europe Suggestions: Bergans (Antarctic Expedition Jacket), Norrøna (Svalbard GTX Jacket).] Page of 2 Fur Ruff Attach to windproof outer/shell jacket. Wolverine is optimum; or wolf, coyote, husky or fox fur. [US Suggestions: Available from Apocalypse Design, Fairbanks and Weberarctic.com. Europe Suggestion: Available from Norrøna.] 3478 South Main Street, Salt Lake City, UT 845 USA Tel: Fax: Web:

2 pair Breathable Windproof Pants/Trousers with Full Side-zips Same fabric criteria as the jacket. Pants need to be as breathable in the back as the front and they need to have easy pull zippers for venting. You must be able to answer the call of nature and a drop seat pant design is vital if the pants have suspenders/braces or a salopette design. The thighs are an area which is vulnerable to cold injury. Avoid a tight fit and allow plenty of room for base layer and insulating layers underneath. Soft shells with a Windstopper material are good. [US Suggestions: Baffin Soft Shell Pants, Arcteryx (Alpha SV Bibs). Europe Suggestions: Bergans (Antarctic Expedition Salopette), Norrøna (Svalbard GTX Pant).] (Recommended) Down Body Warmer/Vest A key piece of equipment. Sized to fit over your outer shell layer. [Suggestions: Available from most outdoor companies.] Down Skirt! A mid-length down skirt by Skhoop.us is very useful leg protection against polar thigh cold injury. Worn over everything else. Men too (think of it as a kilt). A Note on Pile and Pertex Clothing Clothing that combines pile and pertex insulation and windproofing in one garment is often marketed as being ideal for polar expeditions. By combining the windproof outer layer with the insulation it is at times too hot and does not allow the user to regulate their layers in varying conditions. It is therefore not recommended for Ski South Pole expeditions. # Item Description Clothing Layers 3 tops 3 bottoms pair 5 pairs 4 pairs Base Layer Shirts and Leggings 3 sets of high-quality loose-fitting thermal base layers; the tops with long-sleeves. Merino wool, merino/ polyester mix, Capilene, or others. [Suggest: Patagonia (Capilene), Icebreaker, Brynje or Climba brands. No cotton.] Expedition-weight Thermal Base Layer Top A pocket is very useful for keeping batteries warm. [Suggest: Polartec Powerstretch or Polartec Thermal Pro fabrics from same brands as above (e.g. Patagonia R Pullover).] Fleece or Fiber Pile Pants or Bibs Mid-weight loose fitting fleece. Features: drop seat design for toilet use. [Suggestions: Arc teryx, Mountain Equipment Coop, Mountain Hardwear, Patagonia and The North Face all make suitable items.] Fleece Jacket Mid-weight fleece. A number of pockets are useful. Alternatives include Patagonia Micro Puff jackets. [Suggestions: Suitable jackets are made by nearly all outdoor clothing companies (e.g. Mountain Hardwear - Monkeyman).] Socks Pairs of warm, padded wool/synthetic blend socks. (Includes 2 pairs for re-supply). Buy new socks as long distance skiing trips wear the heel sections. Some brands socks are specific for each foot; this is usually an indication of quality. Size to fit over liner and VB socks. [Suggestions: Baffin, Bridgedale, Brasher (4 season), Patagonia, Smartwool, Thorlos, and X-Socks all make suitable high-quality expedition socks. Also, many people find the Intuition liners warm enough to ski in just liner or thin socks much of the time.] Liner Socks Pairs of thinner wool or synthetic liner socks. (Includes 2 pairs for re-supply). Page 2 of 2

3 2 pairs Vapor Barrier Socks Vapor barrier (VB) socks are worn between a liner sock and the thicker insulating sock. They prevent moisture from entering the sock and boot liners allowing them to maintain their insulating qualities. [Suggest: Black Diamond, Exped, or RBH Designs.] pair 6+ pairs Booties Insulated down or synthetic camp booties for use inside the tent, as extra insulation in your sleeping bag and for quick trips outside the tent. Choose ones with a non-slip sole. [US Suggestions: Feathered Friends, REI, Sierra Designs. Europe Suggestions: Ajungilak, PHD Designs or Rab.] Underwear It will not be practicable to change underwear as often as you would at home so it is a good idea to test fabric options before your expedition. Try different options for a few days and pick the most comfortable and best for you. Most high quality gear manufacturers make underwear as part of their base layer range. Wool fabrics are good for underwear as well. Aclima make a long leg short which help protect the thighs. [Suggestions: Patagonia has a good range to choose from.] Headwear The face is especially vulnerable to cold injury, due to constant headwinds. Complete face protection is essential. The objective is to be able to ski into a freezing headwind with your face and head completely protected from the elements. Try combinations of balaclava, face mask, hat and goggles together to ensure that there are no gaps often a crescent shaped between the edge of goggles and a face mask or balaclava is hard to cover. You must be able to breathe freely and moisture from your breath must be able to escape (so that goggles do not fog) while wearing complete face protection. # Item Description 2 pairs Goggles Two pairs of good quality ski goggles with UVA and UVB protection. Two pairs enable a swap if one pair fogs up and a spare in case of breakage. Dark orange or rose coloured lenses are recommended they work in all light conditions. They also need to be highly breathable as fogging up is a problem. Quality brands such as Arnette, Oakley, Scott, Smith, Zeal are recommended. Oakley s website allows a search by lens colour. Replaceable or interchangeable lenses are a good option. Bring two identical frames if buying these. [Alterations Needed: On at least one pair bring a piece of windproof fleece or neoprene to sew underneath the goggles like a nose beak of material to provide face protection in bad weather.] pair 2 or 2 Sunglasses 00% UV protective dark sunglasses with side flaps or a contoured shape that prevents light entering at the sides. Avoid metal frames. Pack in a hard protective case. Face Mask Either a neoprene ski mask or a balaclava that combines a face mask with full head cover. [e.g. Outdoor Research (WS Gorilla Balaclava, Sportstech (Fog evader), Talus (ColdAvenger Expedition Balaclava).] Neck Gaiter Fleece neck tube or gaiter. This can double up to give a variety of ear, face and neck protection, or be used as an eye shade (24-hour sunlight in Antarctica). [Suggestions: Buff brand (Polar Buff), and simple fleece items are made by many other companies.] or 2 Page 3 of 2 Balaclava Lightweight fleece or synthetic balaclava. Powerstretch fabric is good. Wool or Fleece Hat Lightweight wool or fleece ski/beanie hat. [Suggestions: Icebreaker, Patagonia or your old favourite.]

4 Hands You should wear gloves or mitts whenever you are outside, to decrease risk of frostbite and to prevent fingertips from splitting in the dry air. You will need a selection of gloves and mitts to protect your hands whilst performing a range of tasks from setting up tents and taking photos which require dexterity to skiing and standing still which require insulation. ANI will provide you with ski pole pogies insulated ski pole handle covers, like the insulated covers available for motorcycle handlebars. These provide wind protection and an additional layer of insulation to keep hands warm while skiing. (See Apocalypse Designs: # Item Description 2 pairs 3 pairs Liner Gloves Lightweight liner or inner gloves. Fleece and Thinsulate Gloves These are the main gloves that you would expect to ski in. Fleece and Thinsulate gloves. : size to fit over liner gloves. [Suggestions: The best ones are a mix of fleece and Thinsulate.] pair pair Insulated Alpine Gloves (Medium Insulation) It is useful to have a pair of gloves with an outer shell to wear whilst setting up camp. The fleece gloves above are adequate. [Suggestions: Auclair, Black Diamond, Marmot, Mountain Equipment and Mountain Hardwear make a large selection of gloves with varying levels of insulation.] Insulated Mittens (High Level of Insulation) Many mitts are made to be fully waterproof for mountaineering and are stiffer and more bulky than they need to be for Antarctic use. Soft-shelled pile-lined mitts are good, as are synthetic Primaloft mitts. [Suggestions: Mountain Equipment (Fitzroy Mitt) is ideal and recommended. Black Diamond, Brenig, Marmot and RBH Designs all make good mittens.] Elastic Shock-cord Some elastic shock cord is useful to make idiot loops for your gloves and mittens. Your guide will show you how to make these in Punta Arenas. Alternatives to the Previous Item Unlined over-mitts and 2 pairs of separate inner wool or fleece mitts. Sleeping Early season weather is often colder than later in the season. However, this is offset by the drop in temperature as you ski towards the Pole and gain altitude on the polar plateau. The 24-hour solar radiation warms the inside of tents but on cloudy days there is little passive heating. Sleeping temperatures vary greatly. At times it can be extremely cold and at others less so. An extremely warm 5-season sleeping bag can be too hot at times and for this reason some people combine a 4-season down sleeping bag with a synthetic over-bag. Features: Zips are important for ventilation and temperature control. There is lots of sunlight for warming and airing sleeping bags. Page 4 of 2

5 # Item Description Sleeping Bag Expedition quality sleeping bag (rated to -40 C/-40 F). Down preferred. Down is much lighter and will pack smaller than synthetic bags. Get a full body-length mummy bag with generous hood and full-length zip. A little spare space inside is useful to store drinks, bottles, batteries and other non-freeze items. [US/Canada Suggestions: Feathered Friends (Snow Goose), Marmot (Cwm), Mountain Hardwear (Ghost), The North Face (Inferno). Europe Suggestions: Mountain Equipment (Everest), Mountain Hardwear (Ghost), The North Face (Inferno).] Alternative A 4-season down bag combined with either a 2-season down bag or a synthetic outer-over bag. [4-season Suggestions: Mountain Equipment (Iceline). Overbag Example: PHD Designs (Overbag).] Foam Mat Full-length, closed cell foam mat with textured surface. [Suggestions: Ridgerest, Ridgerest Deluxe, Ridgerest Solar.] Therm-a-Rest or Exped DownMat Buy one of the warmest models, full-length Therm-a-Rest or an Exped DownMat. Also bring a Therm-a-Rest repair kit [Suggestions: A 4-season Therm-a-Rest such as the TrailPro or NeoAir.] Pee Bottle litre (32 fl oz) Nalgene wide-mouth bottle. Suggest buy a coloured bottle and label clearly! For women: Also buy a Whiz freedom, Freshette, Shewee or equivalent product. 2 Eating 2 2 Eye Shade/Eye Mask [Suggestion: A good-quality eye mask such as Dream Essentials (Infinity Sleep mask), alternatively collect a couple of free items on long haul flights.] litre (32 fl oz) Nalgene Lexan Bottle With wide-mouth lid. Insulated Over for Nalgene Bottles [Suggestions: Forty Below (bottle boots) or Outdoor Research (water bottle parka).] Litre (32 fl oz) Thermos Flask Stainless steel, high-quality brand. Some guides prefer two Nalgene bottles, some like one Nalgene and a Thermos. Mug Plastic insulated mug with lid. Avoid the narrow-bottomed models designed for in-car cup holders as they are less stable. Lexan Bowl/Fairshare Mug with Lid Or similar non-breakable material box with lid, or a GSI Outdoors Fairshare mug. set Lexan Cutlery Skin Care & Toiletries 2 Sunscreen High factor SPF 50 or above. [Examples: Ambre Solaire (Ultra Protect 50+), Neutrogena (Ultra Sheer SPF 70). Two packs of less than 00 ml (4 fl oz) are better than one large one.] Page 5 of 2

6 2 As required Lip Salve With high SPF factor (minimum SPF 45). Spare Contact Lenses and Fluids or Prescription Glasses Many contact lens wearers either use daily disposable lenses or long wear lenses to reduce weight and volume of cleaning fluids. Personal Medications Sufficient, plus an extra month s supply in case of delays getting to or from Antarctica. High quality multivitamins are recommended. Super glue can be useful for skin splits. Personal Toiletries It is important to keep clean on these long trips. It is feasible to have a quick sponge bath every few days to remove the old sweat and salts from your skin. It helps prevent chaffing and skin irritations. Cuts and rashes heal very slowly, so they are best avoided. Skis, Bindings, Boots, Poles A Ski South Pole expedition is the longest ski trip that many participants will ever take. The criteria for boots are a combination of insulation, comfort, durability and skiing efficiency. There are several different types of boot and binding combinations. They are not interchangeable: your boots must match your binding system. Your guide may liaise with you to standardize participants on a single type of boot and bindings so please check before purchase. Not recommended: Bring a toothbrush, toothbrush cover and toothpaste, several small packs of wet wipes, a small pack towel. Anti-bacterial gel is good for hand washing. Keep to a minimum due to weight. Bring extra set for re-supply. Feminine Products Panty liners are very useful. Whiz Freedom, Fresette or Shewee shaped urination funnel-type products optional try at home, maybe a good idea just for use with a pee bottle at night. A supply of tampons/sanitary towels. There have been medical research papers written on the use of the oral contraceptive pill to control periods on expeditions. A useful summary is available here: Recommendations/No4-Contraception/UIAA_MedCom_Rec_No_4_Contraception_at_Altitude_2009_ V-.pdf Most Mukluk-type boots are high on insulation and low on technical skiing function, they are matched with a large nontechnical binding. They do not provide the skiing efficiency needed for a long Ski South Expedition. At present there are no bindings that are proven to be durable and reliable enough for us to recommend this combination for an all-the-way expedition. Several models of boot use the Rottefella NNN Back Country binding that are very quick to clip in and out but more vulnerable to failure. The Alfa North Pole boots use this binding. Single layer Telemark boots are not warm enough. Mountaineering, Alpine Touring (AT) and plastic Telemark boots are not suitable. AT boots are only used by kiting/ski sailing expeditions. Page 6 of 2

7 # Item Description Boots & Ski Bindings Option A: Baffin Boots 3-pin Expedition Boot These boots, new in 203, combine the comfort, insulation and easy-to-wear-in features of a non-technical mukluk with the skiing efficiency of a 75 mm 3-pin Nordic duckbill ski binding. They have a durable molded sole unit that cannot de-laminate. Add an Intuition Mukluk liner (soft and flexible, super warm, light and heat moldable). Option B: Alfa Extreme North Pole Boot This boot has been used by many expeditions since 20 and has proven to be a reliable expedition boot. it has the advantages of rapid clipping in and out of the Rottefella NNN-BC binding with the warmth of a modern expedition mountaineering boot. Use with an Intuition Liner. pair Option C: Alfa Mørdre Extreme or Pro Boots with Kartanker Inners These boots need two pairs of the katanka/kartanker wool felt inner boots and two pairs of Helly Hansen fiberpile socks sized to go on the outside of each inner boot. We strongly recommend that you buy an insulated super gaiter designed especially for the Alfa boots, available from Brenig in UK or Northwindsarctic in Canada. Alfa boots are available from Sportsnett in Oslo and from A-Sport. If you choose Alfa boots, then you need a 3-pin 75 mm Telemark ski binding from Voile or Rottefella. Option D: Alfa Mørdre Extreme or Pro Boots with Intuition Boot Inners An alternative to the quirky kartanker wool liners is to buy a pair of Intuition liner boots to go in your Alfa Mørdre boots, such as the Universal model. These are more durable, warm and fast-drying. We strongly recommend that you buy an insulated super gaiter designed especially for the Alfa boots, available from Brenig in UK or Northwinds-Arctic in Canada. If you choose Alfa boots then you need a 3-pin 75 mm Telemark ski binding from Voile or Rottefella. Option E: Alternative Boots If you have access to another type of insulated cross-country ski boot with removable inners that use a 3-pin Telemark binding, then please contact us to check their suitability. pair Footbeds or High-quality Insoles pair 2 pairs Skis Metal-edged backcountry skis. The width of the ski is dependent on the boot and binding combination. [Suggestions: Åsnes skis (Amundsen, Amundsen Expedition or Sondre) are the most popular, Fischer (E-99 or E09), or Madshus Voss. These are all wood core skis that allow bindings to be mounted very securely.] Ski Binding Notes If using Rottefella NNN bindings we recommend bringing a spare pair of bindings and to mount the bindings using the Quiver Killer mounting system. Ski Skins Half-length skins are recommended. (Full-length skins provide traction along the full length of the ski which is useful over sastrugi and other undulations but increase drag; half-length skins provide less traction but have a little more glide). Modifications: Many skiers glue and screw their skins to their skis for polar expeditions as it eliminates the risk of the skin coming off. Very short counter-sunk screws are needed. Do this in Punta Arenas with guidance from your guide. The half-length skin system made by Åsnes is excellent. tube Ski Skin Adhesive pair Ski Poles High-quality Nordic or touring ski poles. Cork or leather handles are warmest. Ensure wrist straps are adjustable and long enough that a thick mitt can pass through the loop. Adjustable length is optional. The weakness with adjustable length poles is that many models collapse under load. Black Diamond s FlickLock joint overcomes this problem which is why Black Diamond are the only suggested telescopic poles. Most telescopic poles are not long enough, but can make a good spare set between a team. [Suggestions: Black Diamond (Traverse), Life-Link, Swix (Mountain or Mountain Extreme-fixed length).] Page 7 of 2

8 Additional Items 2 Handkerchiefs Cold temperatures cause runny noses. Swiss Army Knife (Small) Or similar lightweight models from Leatherman or Gerber. Watch With an alarm. Please buy a new battery before coming. A long wrist strap so that you can wear the watch outside clothing is optional. Personal First Aid Kit First aid kit with Band-Aids/plasters, blister kit and foot care items (Compeed, foot care pad, second skin, foot powder, tape), over-the-counter mild analgesia that you are familiar with (not codeine). Arnica is a natural anti-inflammatory and recommended by guides. ANI will supply the guide with a comprehensive expedition first aid and medical kit. Selection or 2 0 Sewing & Repair Kit A small sewing kit, useful to also include some duct tape and a screwdriver that fits your ski binding if there isn t one on your knife/leatherman. Stuff Sacks In different sizes and colours to organize all your kit in the sled and for ease of transfer from the sled to the tent. Large holdall or duffel bag, very lightweight, used for transferring items from your sled/pulk to the tent each night. Avoid heavy-duty bags such as The North Face for this use. Journal Lightweight journal, pencil and pen. [Suggestion: Fisher Space pens work well.] Paperback Books Are unnecessary weight, put books onto your phone or ipod. Compass Bring if you own one, if not, no need to purchase. Must have a Global needle or be weighted for the Southern Hemisphere. [Suggestions: Suunto (M-3G or MC-2G).] Christmas and Birthday Treats and Gift Bring a few lightweight treats and something small you could give as a gift to another person on the expedition. Personal Treats, etc. A few favourite candy bars, family photos, a favourite poem, sponsors phone numbers. US $ The shop at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station accepts US $ cash only so some dollars are useful for souvenirs. Also useful for phone cards at Union Glacier. Chemical Hand Warmers We are often asked about these, bring a few if you would like to. But they weigh just as much once they have been used. Electronics It is useful to standardize your electronics to be powered by AA lithium batteries as far as possible. Make sure all chargers can charge from a USB, or a 2 V DC fitting (car-lighter style). electronics can add a lot of weight so prioritize and research lightweight and compact options. Page 8 of 2

9 # Item Description GPS Bring if you already own one, if not, no need to purchase, the guide will carry two. Lithium AA batteries are the best batteries. Camera, Digital, and Ancillaries Compact cameras are smaller and lighter and sufficient for most needs. Bring a padded protective case, 2- volt battery charger if it doesn t take AA batteries and several memory cards. Digital SLRs and the required ancillaries add a lot of weight and are a luxury item. If you have professional requirements to bring a digital SLR then please liaise with ANI and your guide to see if it is possible to share ancillaries and lenses between the team by standardizing on one brand. Video Camera and Ancillaries Like a digital SLR, a video camera and all associated kit will weigh around 2 kg and this is a lot of weight for an all the way ski expedition. Select the smallest and lightest camera that is suitable with a means of recharging from 2-volt chargers connecting to a solar panel. ipod or Equivalent Digital Music Player Suggested Extras: 2-volt charging lead, spare headphones the thin wires become brittle in low temperatures and external AA battery pack. Note there have been numerous failures of the larger capacity ipods. A solid state ipod Shuffle or ipod Nano may be more reliable. Cell Phone/Mobile Phone If you have a smart phone with camera, video, music, e-books, contacts and a 2-volt cigarette lighter charger it may be worth taking instead of multiple gadgets. Used with an Iridium Go! you would have global connectivity. Solar Panel Power Supply If you are bringing personal electronic equipment, then the best way of recharging it is with a solar panel. These vary in size, weight and cost, if you only need to recharge a personal music player than a small one will do. [Suggestions: Brunton and Solar Blazt panels.] Web Posting and Blogging Equipment Please note that it is not practical to carry a laptop computer, 2-volt power supply and expect to have a power supply and time to post long or regular updates onto a website from the Antarctic during your expedition. The minimum required equipment adds kilos/pounds to your sled and can have a significant impact on the team dynamics. It is best to have a friend at home update websites on your behalf or to call in phonecasts using a service like ipadio. If this is a priority for you then research the lightest options that use a handheld computer or PDA and compression software and please let your guide know in advance. Personal Iridium Satellite Phone Iridium is the only mobile satellite telephone system that works in the interior of Antarctica. If you are bringing your own then the following extras are suggested: spare battery, padded case, solar panel, 2- volt charging cable. Note there have been five generations of Iridium handsets and four generations of batteries and chargers. The latest mode, the 9575 has different batteries and chargers to the previous model the 9555 which as different batteries and chargers to the model the 9505A. Clothes for Union Glacier Bring a change of footwear and clothes: T-shirt and jeans, spare thermals, underwear, socks to change into on return to Union Glacier. A pair of mukluk boots is ideal alternative footwear. If you don t have these then some light walking boots would be useful. Shower gel and a towel would be useful for the end of the expedition. Most people are pleased to get out of thermals into cotton clothing at the end of the expedition. Spare Bag to Leave Kit in at Union Glacier Page 9 of 2
