Evening all, Poor weather and too much of the laughing juice last night prevent me from getting out today so instead i thought i'd sort through and weigh all my gear to see what weight it would be for a 2-3 day excursion. I've managed to get everything i need for a total weight of 5100gms (excludes food, water, fuel and the bag itself). I currently have 2 bag options that i already own Macpac Pro amp race 25 at 931 gms or a Lowe Alpine Airzone pro 35-45 at a whopping 1610 gms. The Macpac is a tad too small (but i think i can get creative with the packing) and the Lowe Alpine too big (although it can all be cinched down). So, reason for my post is that i don't know whether i should spend the money on a new quilt. Currently eyeing up the Thermarest Vesper 32, to replace my ageing Rab Quantum 250 and therefor save around 300gms on the sleeping system, or spend the money on a new lighter rucksack. I've seen the Gossamer Gear Kumo 36 which ticks all the boxes and comes in at 600gms (300 lighter than the lightest pack i have). I can't really justify buying a new quilt and a new bag at present. Decisions, decisions.........What would be your take on it? Oh, and please don't tell me to man up and get a tarp. That aint happening!!!!
