Here's my gearlist.
Pics of it being unpacked as well.

I just got the DriDucks and haven't used them in the field yet. But I figured it would be fun to try and make a Sub-5 list with dedicated shelter and rain gear. I've been using a homemade poncho-tarp previously. I need to do some trips to see which I prefer.

sub five list on 06/02/2008 21:49:00 MDT Print View


everything you see pictured comes in at 4 lbs 15.5 oz
inside the black sack is a Travel Hammock ultralight modified with webbing straps and a structural ridgeline. A MacCat micro tarp too. Both quilts are home-made and the green GoLite ether may not get any use, it is autographed by Andrew Skurka :)
the black chibby at the bottom center of pic is my MP3 player, the only luxury.

Hey Dave

The only thing that is missing from the pic is the golite poncho/tarp which I could not find.

1. did you put a bungee system on your ion? if so, let me know what you did. i'm planning on doing the same, to attach an insulation layer, trekking poles when scrambling, or an ice axe.

I added it on myself for a trip a few weeks back where I needed snowshoes at higher elevations. I went to REI and bought a Mammut spectra climbing sling cut it up and sewed on little loops right to the seems of the pack. It was a pretty fast install and works well to hold the snowshoes and OK to compress the pack.

2. does the prophet pocket work out well with the ion? i've been thinking about the same, to keep a snack and all the random bits of kit together in one place (safety/repair, toiletries, flashlight, etc.).

The prophet pocket does the trick on my sternum strap. It is large enough to hold my camera and a few Hammer Gel's

3. Generic 10's Kit
Fenix LOD 1.01
Spyderco knife 0.50
25 Feet Guyout line 2.00
Medic Kit 1.00
2 esbit cubes
25 matches
2 Feet duct tape 0.25
Aqua Mira in BPL droppers 0.75

One other comment, to get a sub5 I swaped out the Torsolite with a moded Zrest

Hey Dave,
I just found another pic of my Ion with the Prophet pocket on the pack. In this pic it is on the bottom of the shoulder strap.

my TRT was last year... on 06/05/2008 19:51:22 MDT Print View

Hey dave, I took that trip last year.
Started at echo and went clockwise.
Yes, I was trying to break 72 hours, hoping to establish an unsupported record.
For a few different reasons, I turned around at Twin Peaks and walked back.
Last I heard, Sorensen and Popov are planning to try and go unsupported this year in under 60...

Hi Michael Stivers,

I've been looking at your setup again and again and can't figure out what some of the items in the photo are. I'm also stymied about how you deal with rain when walking. Is the microtarp enough for the hammock??? Are the quilts synthetic, or down? May I ask how you deal with rain with the quilts? Would it be possible to see a list of your entire setup, including what you are wearing? The simplicity of some of the setups here is inspiring to see, but I'm always frustrated when I can't see everything brought on a trip.

Thanks! :-)
