my poncho/tarp weighs 9.1 oz (add ~ 2 oz for guys/states) it's a Integral Design that I got used for $35, I've seen GoLite used ones go for $25; $25-$35 is not too expensive for a shelter A...

I'd probably go 4.5 just because of the needed velcro, but I like these enough I wanted to round up. They are breathable, they are light and they do a great job of keeping stuff out of your sho...

my Smartwool beanie makes into both my day pack and multi-day trips, light weight, warm, takes up almost no space- I don't go anywhere w/o it going on two years and it still looks/fits great
