No, this was a winter journey that traversed from W to S on the Vatnajokull, plus all the lava fields and lowlands to and from the 1 road.
The flexis were fine as ever - one pair already had 2000 miles through them and were good. We were also testing prototype bindings on a range of skis from 109s to Amundsens. The Bridgedale gear, from hats to socks, held up brilliantly in the cold and damp.
The team didn't have any link to the Coldest Crossing although Icelandic media did ask for our views on it.
