Matt Kirk( held the AT unsupported record for a while and used to post here on BPL) has a video on his homemade fastpack gear .Feb 21, 2018 at 7:11 pm #3519700Vincent VBPL Member
wow thanks for the info! I’ll definitely be watching those videos
still wanting to know everyone’s input on stuff sacksFeb 22, 2018 at 10:30 pm #3519968Vincent VBPL Member
Im about to start pulling the trigger on gear (tax return ha)
I am still open to lighter weight options when it comes to a shelter but I am keeping in mind if I get away from a poncho/shelter I will need to get different rain gear for if it rains while I’m running.I definitely want full rain and bug coverage. I looked at the MLD bug bivy paired with the gatewood cape – the only thing I was concerned about is the lack of any bathtub floor to keep splashes at bay and the actually pairing of the two products where I know that the serenity nettent pairs well and has a nice bathtub floor.
I am open to a bivy under the gatewood cape just trying to weigh everything.Feb 23, 2018 at 12:36 am #3520001Mike MBPL Member
I think the Gatewood could workout for you- a taller person, not so much
one thing to consider as well is how it would be running in a poncho? I never have, so can’t give any input
