Weekend gear list on 10/22/2010 15:35:28 MDT Print View

I'm mostly making this thread because I'm excited about having a fully loaded weekend pack that weighs less than 25 pounds at the trailhead. I'll outline what's in it, but I can't post all the weights because I'm heading for the trail soon and because I don't have a scale.

Zpacks Hexamid solo, netted
Zpacks large bathtub floor
Gossamer Gear polycro large ground sheet
BPL titanium stakes
Tigoat full net hood bivy
EnLIGHTened Equipment cuben fiber down quilt, 0 degrees fahrenheit
Pacific Outdoor Hyper Elite pad

Packed clothing
2 pairs liner socks
Fugu down jacket
Underarmor boxer briefs, 9" inseam
Ray Jardine kit bomber hat
Precip jacket
Large thru-hiker kit stuff sack

2 bags of powdered food. EFA, protein, and oat muscle. Those should be about 1.2 pounds each and have 3000 calories.
1 quart bag of trail mix
10 liter dromedary bag
1.5 liter water bottle
2 packets of Electromix
1 day of vitamins
Lots of ibuprofen

Other items -- because I'm leaving very soon...
ULA Catalyst
Montbell ti potty trowel
Golite umbrella
Oregon 550 gps
Fujifilm f31d camera
First aid kit
MSR Autoflow filter with rubber removed and bleach in BPL micro dropper bottles
Gorilla tape
Fire steel
Oven bag
Hygiene kit
Potty bottle
BPL headnet
OR Sun Runner hat
Fenix HP10 headlamp
Maps, water report, mechanical pencil

I think that's it. I can add weights and see if I missed any items when I get back on Sunday. While it won't help on this trip, let me know if you spot anything that I can remove or swap for lighter gear.

I would probably be able to cut 2 pounds if I wasn't carry wet weather gear, but then again I'd usually carry more water.

You can do a couple things depending on weather with your shelter. You can leave the bivy and gg ground cloth since you have the Zpacks tub floor or switch the tub floor with the gg ground sheet or leave the Zpacks floor and take the bivy and gg ground sheet. A 10L dromedary bag is pretty extensive, a 2-3L collapsible nalgene would suffice. Instead of a potty trowel use a stick :) Shouldn't need the firesteel, keep your lighter dry (maybe throw in a small book of matches). Shouldn't need the DEET or headnet (where are you going?) no bugs when it's cold. Not sure what the oven bag is for? Shouldn't need your phone, most likely won't be able to call anyone away from the car. All this is just what I would do, I'm not saying it's right or wrong. Take what you want, I don't like when people say that one way is right and the other is wrong. Remember, this hike is your hike so hike it how you want :)
