Some of you might remember me from some older gear lists I posted and got a lot of helpful feedback from to bring my 3 season kit down from around 22-23lbs to 14.33lbs (see my profile to check it out).
But months have passed, a lot of playing around with my gear has been done, and now I have two different backpacks: one for spring/fall, and one for summer.
Due to being a broke student, I have done some DIY/MYOG, but was able to scrape together some dough for a few nice new pieces of gear.
This is for solo outings of 2-3 days (a weekend) here in southwest Sweden between late June-ish to early September-ish.
