My gear list(s): will all of it fit into golite ion? on 01/01/2008 18:42:14 MST Print View

G List 1: This is the gear I am planing to take when I go to training camps.

Cap Balaclava (Woolen)
Under-wear (2)
rain poncho
Nylon & Wollen socks (2+2)
Capilene tshirts (2)
Small torch
Toilet requisites
Woollen Gloves (2)
merino wool Pullover
Woollen base layer (top +bottom)
Trek pant
small Towel
Sandals

G list 2: This my gear for 2-4 days hikes/cycling expeditions (off monsoon).

1/8" sleeping pad trimmed (similar to GG thinlite)
Sleeping bag (very compact)
Small torch
Toilet requisites
merino wool Pullover
small Towel
Trek pant

Thats my gear. Those who use or have used golite ion, do you think both these list will fit into ion? I am new here and need all the advice I can get. If you any suggestions please tell me. Thanks

You can create a very rough simulation of the ion by using an old garbage bag, some math and duct tape. Check this out:

What about water and food? You will have to take that into consideration. At 1500ci and no mesh pockets or straps the ion seems to be a very specialized pack for very good weather. If it was me I would get something more versatile, like the Jam 2. Just my 2 cents.

IMO what you listed will fit (if that's all). I've fit a sub 5lbs gear list and 30k calories in an Ion plus 2.5 liters of water. It's got to be compact though for sure.

thanks for all replies. I think 1500cc will fit my gear or rather I have to find gear thats fits into my 1500cc pack.
