MLD Simple
I have the MLD simple silnylon poncho tarp, and it's great. Has been great as both raingear and shelter, though usually only the former. I think MLD is doing a cuben fiber version now, would ...

You could get a quilt like the EE models that opens up,is read to 35-40*, weighs a pound, and over your bag would supplement your system another 10+*. If you are looking to go color than your 15* b...

Zebralight
Don't know who said the interface is convoluted. Maybe for the first five minutes because it offers three levels each with high and low, but the Zebralight interface is intuitive, genius. I hav...

Do-Able
I typically - when with friends - do more like 12 miles/day. I still maintain a comparable list for three seasons in the sierras. I ageree, it's a bit of self conditioning, but if you must, you...

GG Mariposa
The Mariposa has many proud female hikers behind it, and in my experience is a very spacious pack. 30 lbs. for a few days would not be a problem. The 12-15 lbs. you mentioned seem to be about what ...

great list.
I would only drop the AM drops/bottles. You really don't even need the filter in the sierras. One or the other will be ample. Also, why two stoves? I'd pick the best one, maybe find a li...
