|REI Flash 22 Day Pack|
I can stuff my Thermarest Alpine down quilt into it, add my Sawyer water filtration (3 ounces) personal hygene, spares & first aid kits and a rescue blanket for the ground. I won't cook on this trip so I won't carry my stove or pot.
Food would just be a snack (I would eat dinner on the way to the trailhead) and carry 2 breakfast bars for breakfast.
I would pack my raincoat inside the pack but outside of the waterproofing bag. The Z-pad would be placed outside under the home-made stretchy webbing I would add to the front backpack ladder. My Gatorade water bottles would ride in the side pockets.
|SOL Escape Bivy (breathable)|
Maybe an ultralight tarp & stakes would be good protection in rainy weather, but I am not adding them here because they would weigh too much. I will carry a black plastic trash bag though, which I could rig up with my hiking pole and some sticks to protect my head if it did rain.
I don't carry a change of clothes, but would carry long underwear, a hat and sleeping socks for comfortable sleeping.
It all fits(!) and would weigh just an ounce or two under 5 pounds. By adding the tarp & stakes it would be closer to 6 pounds.
Now, ready for a SUL-S24 (sub-24 hour) hike?
