Looks like you've got it together pretty good. A "bounce box" works great for "extra stuff". Mail it ahead, decide if you want to carry it later.

You might be able to go with a smaller fuel bottle...
Also don't forget Gold Bond powder!

Down jacket just 3 oz? I want one!

nice list...there are a few EXTRAS on your list that i wouldnt carry....but, thats just me!

shake it out...& by the third day when you get to NEELS GAP/WALASI-YI Center....they'll help you ship back home some of the "extras" that you arent using.

good luck with your hike!:D

Im sorry the Down jacket is 4 ounces and its a EMS brand I got for $50....They got a hell of a sale going on

A 2oz bag liner that adds 15 degrees? What is it made out of?

A 20 oz soda bottle will hold more than enough fuel. With the Playtpus and the Camelbak, the water bag for camp and the extra camel bag seems excessive. All you will need extra is something to dip water with.

How are you planning to carry the camera, mp3 player and cell phone?

Some of what I suggested on the other thread still applies.

I am still curious about your super lightweight liner weighing in at 2oz which adds 15F?!?

Also would like to know more about those less than 1 oz waterproof gloves?!? Are they dishwashing gloves? If so, you might also need some gloves for warmth.

Anyway, See you on the trail,

Considering a windshirt is 3-4 oz, that is a heck of a light down jacket. What's it got in it, two clusters of down? :rolleyes:

At some point you just have to go with what you've got. Have you tried this kit on the trail? When you hit the trail, you'll know, and if it doesn't work, you'll make adjustments. Don't sweat the details too much.

I forgot to add the 1lb for the down jacket......its 1lb 4 ounces
