My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: Carrying Extra Water, What Container Do You Use
I have both the 1L Nalgene Cantene and the 2L Platy. I have found that I usually grab the Platy when heading out. The Platy is larger in volume as well as lighter than the Nalgene. But like you men...

Re: Pack liners vs pack covers
I use a 1.9 oz 18x36 ZPacks cuben fiber dry bag pack liner and a 1.2 oz ZPacks cuben fiber pack cover. I am one of those that would rather carry a little extra weight (3.1 oz) to try and ensure dry...

Re: Pack + Pad
Wow, that should be plenty. I would suggest checking out the ULA Circuit or the Catalyst for a pack, depending on how much gear/weight you will be carrying. For a sleeping pad, check out eith...

Re: new pack...
Very nice pack there... I like that you had the bottom of the side pockets made with dyneema rather than mesh. I recently received a pack that uses mesh all the way down, and I found myself wish...

Seam sealing the ZPacks dry sacks
Really, seam sealing the dry sacks is no problem at all. It took me all of about 1.5 minutes to run a single bead down the seam on the 18x36 pack liner I received form him. I just stuffed my sleepi...

Re: Montbell Jacket, or Montbell Parka
I had the jacket and found it to be pretty warm as well as block the wind, however, since I could only have one jacket, I traded it for the Parka, just in case. In my opinion, the only difference i...
