Or take the missus.
Mine would have been about 10 kg packed for 3 nights, including Laphroaig, earlier this week.
Granite Gear pack 1.2 kg
Western Mountaineering Versalite Sleeping Bag 0.9 kg
Thermarest NeoAir ThermX sleeping mat 0.43 kg
MLD Solomid and MacPac Alpine cocoon bivvy bag 0.9 kg
Approx 3.5 kg for the big 4
Nice program btw.
W M bag. Nice. As good as they say ?
I know I can get my pack down another few kg’s going a light weight pack but I’m still unsure because of my back and the harness worry me.
You..Mightn't have noticed that there is no quantity value to these items. The list has been developed under the guise that I can tailor it a calculator for specific trips. As this trip is to Mt Sterling either of those items you mentioned are not required.
Ultimately I believe carry out what you carry in..
Granite Gear have great harnesses
Check out their website, not ultralight but light.
Just purchased my One Planet Stiletto, Love it but it doesn't seem to be the lightest
Looks cold. Does it come in a warm version?
+1. Love my WM bag
Weighed my pack last weekend when I got back to the car and it was about 10kg (base weight?) so with food and water my winter starting out weight is about 12kg.
I could not get anywhere near that, what do you have in it so I can make a comparison to mine
My winter three day bushwalk pack weight this week (non snow, but below zero at night) was 15kg, including 6L water, helmet, harness, slings and biners, waterproofing to pack swim, and 20m rope.
No machete or hatchet though.
that's about 2kg less compared with my sleeping bag, mat and tent. Wow.
Problem is I still really like sleeping in just jocks and t-shirt in the 30 year old J&H Winterlite, but if you're doing the same in a bag half the weight then maybe it's time I brought out the credit card.
@Untele-whippet is just hardcore. He sleeps in jocks and t shirt, and just uses the sleeping bag in stuff sack as a pillow ;-)
hmmm, must be the choice of whisky, what is he drinking?
Home proofed, in his old tele boots.
*Marmot Helium bag 1kg
*tent 2.2kg plus snowstakes
*50l pack 1.5kg
*Furno stove + 650ml titanium mug + 100g fuel canister
*thermarest z mat (foam backup to exped) which I could cut down to hip to shoulders)
*small first aid kit
*tshirt, leggings, jocks and socks
*loo roll, toothbrush, cig lighter, roll of gaffer tape, suncream, rubber gloves, sponge.
*600g-750g down jacket in small drybag
*beanie and baseball cap
NB the following will effect the weight totals:
a penknife on belt
i wear a torch around neck or in pocket
+plus a 600g tech wproof which I was wearing .. (I could take a lighter 400g jacket)
+ a 500g rigger jacket for middle layer I was wearing : (both could be added to pack: I can't remember whether the rigger was on pack when I weighed it).
+ 1l water used up
+ 1kg food and snacks if that. I don't eat much over 2 nights and subsist on snacks for breakfast and lunch plus salami and couscous evening meal plus a banana. More than 2 nights, and I would rapidly degrade on that daily intake so would need the additional 'scaled' daily food, plus a bit more to keep me going (and happy). I can get by on not even 1l water a day consumed even in full on exercise over 5hrs plus. Again, for shorter trips, I am a camel.
I didn't carry crampons or axe.
Missing:I borrowed a shovel
For rather more hardcore trips I would have added snowshoes as well but prefer crampons.
