You may not be aware of this, but it gets cold at night at 17,500 feet and above. Thankfully, one of Apa’s sponsors is Hot Chillys. They make some of the best insulating layers you can get. When Apa is heading for his 20th Everest summit, he’ll be wearing Hot Chillys underneath.
I have a couple of pairs of Hot Chillys too and they’re amazing. On the ten-day trek up to base camp they were invaluable. When it got cold, they kept me warm. When it got hot, the light weight construction and breathability kept me from overheating.
Hot Chillys has also donated over $10,000 in product to be sold in Namche. All the proceeds go to the school in Thame, Apa’s hometown. That’s why Apa is proud to be sponsored by Hot Chillys.
