I've been following this thread closely, and I'm impressed by what I have seen. I'm taking a 14 day (estimated) snowshoe trek on the Superior Hiking Trail (similar to Skurka's Icebox of '07) in January, and my gear list looks pretty similar with a few exceptions. (exceptions: MK1 XL for shelter, -20 down bag, white gas stove and mukluks. As for the reasons for them, I bought the MK1 on a huge sale and can't justify returning it OR buying another shelter, the bag and stove are what I have and the mukluks have been used in MN forever, and have earned my trust. I'm also taking VB clothes instead of a VB liner)
Your list looks very thorough. My only qualm is using the BB, but hey, go for it. As for the booties, While I would love to get rid of them and cut their weight from your pack, with your footwear setup they are necessary. I look forward to trip report and photos!
Good call on adding the TNF down coat/parka. I would really like to take a Montbell Thermawrap parka, but my temps could be -20 or colder. I also am opting for thicker down jacket instead of a UL parka better suited for
I also liked the photo of wearing all of your clothes. It is something that needs to be done for anyone who is heading to the outdoors. It answers the questions: How does my clothing work together? and What is the most amount of my clothing I can wear at a time?
Good luck. I'll keep following.
