My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Re: Re: Will carrying your gear even be necessary in the future?
drones have little carrying capacity and small range good for taking video some day if there are drones that do have carrying capacity and range, they'll be super expensive

Re: sil nylon tarp as a bivy question.
some silnylon is more waterproof regardless, very little will wick through but, you'll get a lot of condensation

Re: Re: Safe water container
If they line the aluminum container with "food grad powder coating" - that's plastic with all the possible risks of that. From alzheimer association http://www.alz.org/alzheimers...
