I was quite fascinated by Jan's pack - and the fact that he attached two snowshoe bags to the sides, filled with I don't know what. Their packs were very heavy, and getting under some of the trees must have been a nightmare.
I like the Burn a lot - it's a perfect size for a 3 to 5 day trip. It is quite narrow though - if I'd put a rolled CCF mat inside it it would have been a tight squeeze getting everything in. However, I think I could have taken a little less myself, especially if the weather had been a little warmer at night (or alternatively cooler in the day). My packing list is at:
Any advice on cutting weight further would be appreciated!
I slept in a DuoMid, in a Bristlecone bivy which kept condensation off the bag.
There was only condensation the first couple of nights, and I pitched it high and under trees, so I wasn't too bad.
The last night I pitched the 'Mid very high, and the dew point was also very low, so the was no condensation.
