    are we impressed?

    it’s rather an incomplete list unless you’re planning on wearing nothing but your poncho in a very temperate if not tropical locale– perhaps in a nudist colony.

    good taste in MLD products, though.

    Locale: Arkansas!

    I always wear clothes when I hike. I just put the items of gear that I wear on my body & not in my pack in the bottom list. Sorry for not being more specific. If I dont mention them, people will tell me that Iam missing the essentials so I decided just to put them as worn items.

    Also, I do wear DEET because if you don’t here in Arkansas, you will get eaten alive by mosquitoes & flies, etc.

    Looking good. This list, in my opinion, has seen the evolution from your other extreme low weight lists, without much in the way of comfort, to a still crazy-low-weight list with a more reasonable degree of comfort, durability, and functionality. Congratulations.

    No sleeping pad? Stealth camp on naturally soft site?

    No extra clothes? Not even a windshirt or Dri Ducks top? I find that 100% DEET sometimes will not get it for me and our local mosquitos.

    4L of H2O purification would be pushing it for me in Alabama for a weekend…I might take a few more MP1 tabs.

    Glad to finally figure out where you are located. I’ve seen your other SE lists and have been interested.
