Wind is like a thief in the night, stealing warmth from our rigs.
I have experimented with overcovers, weathershields and socks which has made me a firm believer that these things are an integral part of your kit if you're going to be camping in the wind.
BTW, It's great to hear from you Grinder! I can't wait to hear your campfire stories of your trip.
