    Hi folks,
    here´s my kit list for our trip in South-West Germany.Night temps will be around 1-4°C .
    I regard the powerbank and the backpack as overkill,but since my Atom didn´t arrive it´s my best alternative.The MLD Core would have been too small.

    Nice list. Be interested in how you find the poncho. Does the hole leak when used as a ground sheet?

    @Enzo I don´t think so.You can close it down using a cord and the hood.

    Personally I don't think the HMG is overkill as you can always remove the aluminium stays and compress it down further. IMO HMG packs are excellent and extremely versatile... I now have two!!

    Horses for courses I know but you've a very nice kit list here. Look forward to seeing pictures and learning how you find the AS Tucas poncho. I keep putting the blanket and then the quilt in the basket but can't quite decide on what I precisely want in warmth level (167 or 200) ... [...and that is aside from trying to justify yet another quilt]

    I used the poncho for an overnighter but had the Sestrals quilt quite a while in use.Since I´m a very warm sleeper (almost as tough as @Dr.Matchbox :whistling::roflmao:)
    I can agree with As Tucas´ temperature rating but a lot of people don´t and regard them as extreme.So it depends...
    I do like the HMG,but would have loved to use my ordered The Atom.

    Watch out for speed cameras in Luxembourg there is no margin for error. 1km over the speed limit and you get a €45 fine and they send them home in your own language.

    I always use public transport in Luxembourg, @PhilHo .The bus network is excellent and the all-day ticket costs 4€ per person,so no need to use the car.I suppose you´re talking from your own experience?:biggrin:
