Good gear there! Do I see a 10x45 RF in amongst there??

I hunt the high country in Norway, and I usually add a better sort of survival blanket, a kind of sack that reflects heat, keeps water out, and is lightly insulated. Weights about 1,5kg, and you're most likely to survive  a broken leg in one of those during some real cold winter nights..

Isn't it a bit dangerous to have an ice axe, and not crampons? I mean, when you ned the ice axe, you're very likely in need of the crampons too??
I've scrambled down a snow-covered scree in the Havelock with ice axe only, and won't do it again!

Similar to yours but add more food (usually one square meal bars and bumper bars), a survival bag (the big orange ones with the bottom rolled up so it fits that daypack) a first aid kit and a a full change of clothes (Icebreaker).

I often carry one of those little gas primus tops that fold up (not much bigger than a computor mouse), that you screw onto a self sealing bottle and a stainless cup so you can have a hot cuppa.
Also a roll of insulation tape to put over the end of your barrel and a 100 other uses ..... have also used little strips of it to mark a track before.
Bits of rubber bike tube makes good fire lighters, and it doesnt stink like little lucifers. I keep four or five spare rounds of ammo in a strip of bike tube. And also AA batteries for the GPS or two way radio in another.
Bike tube sleeves nicely onto your knife belt or rifle sling.

I use my ice axe heaps even when there's no ice around - climbing up the steep stuff or even for digging trenches around my tent for drainage in a downpour.
Carried crampons at times  - haven't needed em yet but ya never know

Nope you see some cheap bushnell trophys haha.  Nah no cramp ons, the ice axe is for emergency only,  i am not experienced enough to go in to the ice,  i can usually find tahr where there is no snow,  but i bet now the next bull i see will be in the white stuff
