Where to buy: Discovery medical aid gives a great discount at Cape Union Mart BUT even with the discount we found that Trappers as well as Drifters were much cheaper. We bought from them. The First Ascent brand “owned” by Outdoor Warehouse was also way cheaper at Drifters in Sandton. You can ask for discount at Outdoor Warehouse stores, Drifters still has the best price!!

Because of the size of the 30l bag we will fit the snowball jacket in Abré’s bag, just no space! When we hit Ushaia middle February, Janko will most probably carry the jacket and we will swop the content of bags. Keep on reading and we will update changes!!
