Steripen Usage..

Kitchen cover...
I have a 5 X 8 Integral Designs siltarp that weighs 6.9 oz. Nicely made with lots of tie-outs. I particularly like the tie-out that they put in the centre of the tarp (suspends nicely from a tree).

Tom - My pack is a Granite Gear Wisp which has a capacity of 2000 ci (33 liter). It's not the lightest pack (1.5 pounds) but it fits me well and I can manage a 5 day trip with this pack but...

Torn Meniscus
