Current Gear List on 03/01/2009 23:09:36 MST Print View

I've been working on getting lighter (and better) gear for the past 2 years. Here's what I'm currently rocking:

GoLite Jam 2 pack
Lafuma Warm N Light 600 bag* (warm weather)
Marmot Aspen 15 bag* (cold weather)
Thermarest BackPacker Lite pad
GSI Dualist cookset
GSI Tekk Fork and Spoon
MSR Pocket Rocket stove
MSR Fuel Canister
Light My Fire Scout fire starter
Platypus 1 liter bottles (x 2)
Big Agnes Seedhouse SL 2 (w/ footprint)
Princeton Tec Quad headlamp
Ex Offico Amphi pants
Cloudveil Clutch shirt
SmartWool Adrenaline Light microcrew socks (x 2)
Montrail Hardrock trail running shoes

I'm heading to Red River Gorge in 2 weeks with my new lightweight set up. Last time I went I had a Kelty Sante Fe 4000 bag, a Eureka Timberline 2 tent, and all kinds of Ozark Trail crap I picked up last minute. I should be much happier.

Absolutely no idea on the total weight. I am a bad person and do not own a digital scale.

That is THE MOST IMPORTANT piece of gear for the LW backpacker!

I never had a scale until my workplace got a little 5lb non-digital that I borrow on occasion. It opened my eyes.

I can tell you the weight of a few things, since I own them.

Big Agnes SL2= total weight of 61.75oz, broken down as follows:

Poles -12.75
Pole Sack - .5
Footprint - 6.25
Sack - .25
Rain Fly - 16.5
Tent Body - 18.5
Sack - .75
Stakes - .5oz/each

Ex-Officio Amphi (32 Reg) - 12.25

GSI Dualist = total 19.5, broken down as follows,

Pot - 8.5
Lid - 2
Bowl - 1.5/each x 4 = 6
Lid - 1/each x2 = 2
Cozy - .5/each x 2=1

I just traded out the BA SL2 for a TT Rainbow(30 oz savings) and the GSI Dualist for a Snowpeak 770 + Snowpeak Mug (14 oz savings)
