Great replies

Good input so far!
Thanks guys, I will take a look at the TT for sure. I am not married to getting another cuben shelter, but I admit I am spoiled on the rain performance and lack of sag. But if I can find a ligh...

Kifaru UL
I owned one of the larger Kifaru UL packs when they first came out. They are VERY well built, light and the suspension system is great. I had up to 55lbs in mine and well, it is still 55lbs, but ...

Re: Re: Snowpeak 700ml Mug Lid
That is the one I have currently, so mine is Ti not Aluminum. So when I get back I will be comparing it to the carbon fiber one and see which I like better.

Pack arrived!
My friend took delivery on my new ULA Circuit. It was at my door step about 3 days after ordering. I cannot wait to see it in person and get it loaded up.

Bear canister?

Ha you would think!
Ha, you would think! I am in desert digitals, and I like Multicam. I almost went old school woodland, but MC won out in the end.

Montbell Extremely Light Down Jacket
I have the Ex Light in a large and I am 5'7" 175lbs (16.5, 32/33 dress shirt). The fit is great. As was said before, this jacket is meant as a layering piece, and it does its job very well....

Sea to Summit Alpha Light Spoon
I have the longer one and it is perfect for freezer bag meals, and lighter (and cheaper) than the Ti one to boot. The shape is great as well. Bravo S2S.
