Just a thought - does your Swiss Army knife do anything that your multi-tool doesn't do? You may be carrying extra weight if there is too much overlap between the capabilities of the tools. The list seems to be pretty well thought out.

I like small "velcro" wraps instead of zip ties for almost every application I've come across.

For me, add my Marmot, roomy, 2-person, bomber, 4-season tent
9lbs

I'll bring it just about anywhere! Chi-Basin? You bet. The trick is to find a partner that will haul it up the hill.

Good list, but no down coat? Lots of warmth for little weight.

I wonder if you have to be 21 to purchase. :lol:

Great list...thanks for that....I could go a 2 day without the toothbrush...leave in the car for when done. You could eliminate a few more ounces by just taking a knife or multi tool and using that in place of a trowel. How much do you think a GPS weighs (sorry if I don't see it on the list). this is a good list.....I am going to share it with friends.

Very nice list. I always take a warm pair of mittens in the pack and sometimes 2 pairs of "skinnning" gloves, one in the pack and the other on my hands. Do you have 24" of wire in your repair kit, very valuable stuff in the field...Thanks for sharing.

Nice list. I would have to add the 1.5 lbs for my mechanical knees. But otherwise very nice.

4 lb sleeping bag?

headlamp AND flashlight?

hat AND balaclava AND bandana?

thermo mug AND waterbottle?

emergency blanket? (ya got a bivy bag and sleeping bag on the list)


Go with a smaller pack - for 2-3 nights or less, you just don't need that much stuff unless its the middle of winter. Small pack = lighter load.
I don't care that you Tele.

Wire - Malleable "hardware" wire, can be used for everything from stitching pack straps to replacing broken binding parts, snowshoes and general fastening. Light enough to not be a burden and useful enough to make it a prime addition to your repair kit...$0.02.
