What is YOUR luxury item on 05/04/2010 22:18:46 MDT Print View

Everyone seems to have at least one non-ultralight luxury item. For some it is the sleeping pad, others it's a backpack that just fits really well. Just curious what luxury or non-ultralight stuff people are splurging on.

101 Wild Turkey, and a 5.4 oz. 10 L. solar shower bag (multi-use: water carrier, washing dishes-hands-whole body, and for campfire security).

I'm not an ultralighter by any means - but outside of my pack the heaviest item I have is an Exped Synmat 7 DLX that weighs around 39 oz. That is my must have - I don't care how great I feel on the trail - if I don't sleep good it wasn't worth it.

Sleeping in a hammock over dwelling on the ground. Doubles my sleeping shelter weight, but I'm alright with that for a good night of sleep.

Imagine the woman that has to buy an inflatable doll. On second thought, DON'T imagine that girl.

Very packable -- hardly takes up any pack space -- and light too!

OK Ben, so you went to bed, then came back and had a pic of an inflatable doll?
