Clothing and Footwear

kazbek climb kazbek expedition kazbek tour kazbek climb from georgia mount kazbek from georgia kazbek ascent 2019 mount kazbek climbs kazbek climbing routes mt kazbek climb prices climb to kazbek mount kazbek tour price
1
Thermal underwear
It’s the first line of defense against the cold and wicks away moisture. It’s better to take lightweight underwear to move freely. Comfortable to sleep in. Two sets are necessary. Fits perfectly with athletic style underwear.
2
Casual clothing
Lightweight microfibre trousers, fleece or Climashield coat. Your clothes should be comfortable and allow you to move freely.
3
Wind protection
Worn over your casual clothes at high altitudes, during rain and strong winds. Made of expensive breathable GoreTex-type fabrics. Jacket is required, trousers are optional (for those sensitive to cold). Should fit well over your casual clothes.
4
Outer insulated layer
Down jacket, down pants or down shorts. Effectively protects you against cold and wind, lightweight and compact when packed. Sensitive to water. Down trousers are a full substitute to wind protection trousers. Outer layer should fit well over your wind protection layer.
5
Footwear and warm accessories
There are two types of footwear for Mt. Elbrus: everyday boots and mountaineering boots. If it’s your first climb, the mountaineering boots can be rented. It definitely pays to buy them if you are going to climb after Elbrus. You need to have your own everyday boots. These are hiking boots with a hard sole. Should be high-ankled and 1.5 — 2 sizes bigger + CROCS-style footwear with a closed toe. Lightweight and waterproof, they are used during rest and in the shower.

Hat (buff), hiking socks, light gloves, down mittens, gaiters. A buff is a universal and convenient accessory, it’s better to have two (for head and neck). Hiking socks effectively wick sweat from the feet and provide cushion, but can be expensive. Lightweight synthetic gloves for everyday usage protect hands from wind exposure. Down mittens are essential during the summit push and at high altitudes. Gaiters are worn over hiking boots and they protect the lower part of your trousers from dirt, dust, water and wind.
