Hello everyone.

An associate of mine going to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in a few weeks, and is undecided about which jackets to take. Is there anyone with experience in this type can recommend what to get? How cold it will be there during a walk a day How cold in tents at night?

Climbed Mount Kenya (January three years ago).
As far as I know the weather conditions should be similar, but as I understand the older high Kilimanjaro and it could be significant.
I slept three nights at 4200 m, two of them significantly decreased temperatures below freezing (bottled water and remove completely frozen).
During the walk was very dependent on wind and cloudiness (very varies from day to day and from hour to hour).
And you have to remember you by (approximately) of altitude sickness is tired and cold.

The included remote thermal shirt and my tights from polyester ("thermal clothing), fleece shirt and fleece jacket, rain jacket and rain pants
(+ A t-shirt and trousers are very thin).
I had a hat, wool and had lost gloves-big mistake.
The bag is basically a km reverse matches the minus ten and an inflatable mattress.
It wasn't good enough on the night was cold high (I slept in a tent and cabin)
And climbing to the top I was wearing on the hands the last socks as gloves.

In mm, wisdom
To maximize weight vs. Brown
I'd give thermal shirt, take two plisim (or replaces the fleece coat thicker in upside down/synthetic)
Considering whether to take the thermal tights but surely taking pants fleece,
And of course a raincoat and rain pants.
Don't pass up a good insulator Cap (preferably one that also cover the neck or add a scarf) and gloves, especially if you can settle for gloves that immunity (at least partially) to water and wind.

Besides, recommend to make every night a bottle warmer and a bag.
It saved us from being poor frozen (so it was just some poor frozen ...).
Can I get נאלג'ין for that, but just knclim work (just to make sure they don't lost.)

Hope I helped.
