All packed up and ready to go. Rae Lakes Loop, Sierras tomorrow. 3 days.
Here's my SUL Durable / Thru Hike kit = sub-6-7lbs baseweight depending on personal height/weight. It's SUL with a rugged exterior and a more fully apportioned list of items for "mountain" travel:
Custom spec'd MLD Exodus pack (no hipbelt), with BV450 bear canister 3-days food, 22* Katabatic quilt, full length 1/8" foam pad, Neoair Xlite Small, Gatewood Cape, UL down parka plus other warm stuff, LiteTrail Cook System, Golite Umbrella and one liter of water. I don't use trekking poles.
Food and canister alone is 8 lbs (6 lbs food, 2 lbs/day).
Base weight: 6 lbs 4 ozs (without water or canister, but everything else)
Total pack weight: 17 lbs (includes water and canister).
Keep an eye out for post trip pictures.
