comment Does whiskey help keep you warm in winter?
That is a completely fair point. I have consulted the most authoritative source I know of for wilderness medicine and asked my favourite doctor, and they both agree. Information above.

comment Liners and Travel sheets
I'm not sure what the difference in the products are, but I know there is a difference in their purpose: travel sheets are just meant to keep you clean if you're traveling (say) in a particularly dirty country, and sleeping bag liners are generally meant to keep you slightly warmer and keep your bad clean.

comment Facility to test cold weather gear in London UK
Aside from just walking into a meat freezer, I've never heard of anything like what you're asking. But to be more clear, this is not something that people usually do when buying gear.

comment How to maintain climbing strength while training for a marathon
Well, I think at least one day a week at the climbing gym will have to happen. Even if it hurts. And the only "equipment" I have at home is a pull-up bar and some rock rings.
