If you are still searching for the perfect base camp layer for all your mountaineering adventures, look no farther than the award-winning Klymit Kinetic Double Diamond vest.
Lobo Gear, one of our Mexican e-tailers and a friend of the brand, recently took the Double Diamond to Chimborazo and sent back a rave review.
From Lobo Gear: “Using my vest on Chimborazo en Ecuador! It rocks at base camp!!”
We love hearing stories and seeing photos of trips where friends or retailers, or in this case both, get the chance to use Klymit products in fascinating places like Chimborazo. With a peak elevation of 6,268 metres (20,564 ft), Chimborazo is the highest mountain in Ecuador. It is the highest peak in close proximity to the equator. While Chimborazo is not the highest mountain by elevation above sea level, its location along the equatorial bulge makes its summit the farthest point on the Earth’s surface from the Earth’s center.
