Afternoon all, I'm having to cut my load down and down due to an injury.. I've cut my pack weight down considerably and I'm now contemplating the last part of my kit...the bag... I'll be using this kit in the lakes (wild camping high), Dartmoor or maybe Skye in August (where we go depends on the weather tbh)... Will be out and about for 7>9 days but will have at least 1 or 2 nights on organised campsites so I don't smell like... er... well... me after a week without a shower... My kit list (working project).... DD superlight tarp 420gr (no pegs) Oookworks bathtub groundsheet - 180g or a flat one @ 100g 12 titanium pegs and 4 lightweight 5m guys. - 190g Down sleeping bag @ 1kg or my poly one @ 0.75kg (if warmer weather). Alpkit titanium cooking pot 99g Coleman stove 77g C100 Gas canister 175g Waterproofs 0.8kg Spare trousers (craghopper basecamp), t-shirt (wool), boxers and socks 1.1kg (this is my dry/swap kit) F/aid kit - 200g Water - 2ltr hydration pack 2.1kg Food - tend to carry about 4/5 meals worth - about 0.6kg Other odds and ends like maps, compass, spork, knife etc come in at about 500g 7.5kg ish... (bearing in mind last year before I did my back a mischief my kit was 15kg+) I don't count my walking poles, fleece and kit I'm wearing in this weight although if it's really warm some might end up in the pack. This lot fits in my trusty old gelert 30ltr rucksack (1.3kg)... but only just and every pocket is jammed full.... My other rucksacks 60ltr and weighs in at nearly 2kg on it's own. So I'm looking for something in between say around 40/50ltr... Two are currently on my list but I can't find much in the way of reviews and neither one appears to be in stock anywhere near me... http://www.ultralightoutdoorgear.co.uk/equipment-c3/rucksacks-c19/all-rucksacks-c134/ultra-tour-40-multi-day-trail-pack-p5737 http://www.ospreyeurope.com/gb_en/talon-44 The montane is the lighter of the two but I do like the look of the Talon's adjustable back system and the way the hydration pack fits outside the main pocket.... Any thought or further suggestions most welcome... Or thoughts on my kit list in general.
