    Slow morning before work yesterday, thought it'd been a while since we had a good kit list to nibble at.


    Plenty of fat to be trimmed, have at it ;)

    Hi Matt.

    Given the collection of 36l packs you are selling, what has made it onto the 'keep' list and why?

    Not THAT much fat to be trimmed though... :cool:

    Nice looking list.

    Not quite there with more complex framed/fixed hip belt packs but for simpler designs I'm happy now that my MYOG stuff is pretty good.

    As such the pack in the above gear list is the finest backpack ever made so I'm keeping that one :D

    With that said I'd be happy with any one of the packs I have for sale if it was my only UL pack.

    There may be a little fat in the money, depends what notes you take, otherwise like @Arne L. said not THAT much....
    Might be able to add a bit insulated gloves? Lighter included in cook kit?

    Thanks Arne, enjoy looking through other people's kit lists so thought I'd put one together to generate a little discussion.

    Need to add FAK and additional camera weights as I almost always take one if not one plus the GoPro

    I think you might be right re the money as I just weighed my wallet as is and there's still a load of of Yen in there :rolleyes:

    Left out the insulated gloves as I rarely seem to use gloves in summer, figured the mitts would keep the wind and wet off and the hoody has thumb loops so the sleeves cover all but my fingers for a little extra hand warmth.

    Pretty sure the cook kit weight includes stuff sack, pot, lid, cone, burner, ground reflector, hot lips, lighter, tiny cloth and pot lifter but I might double check tomorrow :angelic: just realised I've neglected to add a back up lighter/fire-steel aswell, will update tomorrow...

    No real fun to be had there....:(

    You could save a massive 65g by swapping the battery pack for 2x18650s and a Miller...but why...

    Really.. I think you are just using this as an opportunity for boasting :biggrin::thumbsup:

    I don't really know anything about 18650s/miller... I shall investigate...

    That misc section keeps me awake at night :nailbiting:

    Hardly neophytes with your weighty compasses...

    We wizened old fellows use a Suunto Clipper Compass at 5g

    It's so small I couldn't find it in the gear cupboard :arghh:

    Got a link to a decent 18650/miller? Asking for a friend

    That's 5g plus the weight of the reading glasses....

    My Anker external battery + cable weighs 60g less for 7000mAh?

    The Gixer ex-thread. I bought my 18650s and Miller from Gearbest. And bought a XTAR SP1 as well.

    Sorry, my mistake the Anker is 5600mAh (138g inc. cable) ironically due to ageing my arms weren't long enough to read the miniscule numbering and I needed to fetch the glasses!

    It's good enough for 2 phone full recharges though.

    1kg of Misc, got to be some trimming there but its better than my carrying the three volume Lord of the Rings. :D

    Victorinox classic weight half the leatherman style.
    Toothbrush could be lighter, my tesco value one weighs 4g iirc. Zpacks one even less.
    Do you really need a clean water bag? I've always just filtered into my bottle.
    Could swap the sawyer for chlorine tabs.

    Cracking list.

    That is a list that I can't reasonably trim owt Matt. At least without sounding pedantic or pretentious. A list to aspire to there I reckon. Remind me not to compare pack weights with you when we venture out together else I'll likely be jealous !

    I had assumed that by posting such a refined gear list he was being pretentious and requesting that we are pedantic in our scrutiny? :tongue:

    496g on a quilt can be bettered by 100g i reckon for the same warmth with down. There is my pedantic observation :D

    But the MLD does double as extra insulation with that poncho hole and I don't know of a similarly light down quilt that has a poncho hole ?
    In the summer I'd worry about midge hell in a bivi. A light mesh inner for the Tramplite perhaps ? Only a slight hit on weight but much better livability if the midges abound.

    With that clothing/sleep system - on a 3 season, multiday, high level Scottish trip - I'd be bl**dy freezing/miserable and unsafe. :cry:
