In my opinion yes it is worth the weight savings to go with the smaller pad. The L/W is huge. FWIW, the Exped Synmat UL 7 that the other posters are suggesting weighs quite a bit at 21 oz. in t...

It is all a judgement call, but things I'd consider changing are: 1. Lose the ti pot and use the cup. 2. Take aquamira or the filter. If the filter, consider the new Sawyer mini. 3. A chair...

"Has anyone wished they had their western kit up there?" No but at the last minute and on a whim, I left my Tenkara in the car and took my fly rod and reel on the JMT and was happy wit...

That is a pretty harsh review. Given that they start at $200, I'd have expected more. I own a Fountainhead Caddis Tenkara. It is fine with me, but prefer to use my cheapo 4wt Wind River co...

Same cord different technique
I'd advise just helping the weight along on the way up and supporting it on the way down. That will be easier on the tree than just going with a thicker line. Use your hand when in reach and ...

Maybe you need and should take the items you propose. I just don't get what it has to do with your weight loss. If you need them, you probably needed them before you lost weight.

You worked hard to trim your list why dream up stuff to add. Add things if you need them or they add greatly to your enjoyment of the trip. If you feel you need the items you propose adding, take...

Ground Cloth
I stopped using ground cloths. I figure they are unnecessary extra weight. In the past my tents always were replaced for some reason other than a worn out floor, but if a tent floor did wear out,...

Thermarest Neo-Air
