Obligatory equipment


Hi Lizzy,

Just a quick question on this the obligatory equipment:

“12. Long running trousers or trousers that cover over the knee”

Would this full leg compression constitute as one? https://www.compressport.com/product_detail/full-leg/?id_cat=92
…or any full length compression tights?

Or its referring to an actual hiking trousers? just don’t want to bring the wrong item later on :slight_smile:



Hi Ka74

Technically these give full leg cover, however they are not designed to keep you warm, plus being compression, not easy to put on in an emergency. The purpose of the obligatory equipment is to keep you safe in the mountains. So we are looking for either running leggings or 3/4 leggings as ideal based on the obligatory equipment list.

Stay safe out there
