About Me Started hiking somewhere around Y2K, with a 50 pound pack, incl. food, water and fuel.
That dropped down to ~37 pounds incl. f, w & f, which wasn't that bad concidering traditional gear and food for ten days!
Than the UL bug bit me and my gear weight dropped and dropped to a baseweight of ~10 pounds for my Scotland-16-day-Solo.
Going solo for 3 days two nights max, baseweight is down to 4lbs2; Going solo for longer baseweight is down to 8lbs2.

Steve, It says titanal compact on my poles, so I guess that's the name of the model. Hope it helps. Eins

>Einstein, what model of the Komperdell titanal poles did you buy.< Uhm? El-if-I-know. I guess I have the Contour Titanal cause I don't have any shoch absorbers and other stuff, but i ...
