Kit being worn, about 5 pounds
Just basics, Trousers, merino T, socks, hat, briefs. Adding a layer with a wool jumper if its cool, and a windproof top.
Also in the pic are gaiters, walking poles and Pack. Not shown are my boots.
This is the kit I am carrying on my trek. Total weight about 35 pounds.
I have seen reference to a “sleep system” which I find amusing, its my bed.
The bag is a women’s version, because it is slightly bigger at the top (like me) and a bit shorter (also like me). In the middle is a blow up mattress, and then a buff around my down jacket makes a pillow.
Spare clothing, socks, underwear, trousers and merino T’s and a pair of sandals for around camp
Hygiene consists of the basics,tooth brush and toothpaste, soap and a razor. The flannel makes an all over wash easier, and then a lightweight towel. These are in a waterproof bag.
Equally unnecessary, because it won’t be cold, Hat, gloves, merino buff, fleece and down jacket.
Cooking is on the primus, I also have a pan. The bowl and gas can all nest together. Mug and cutlery of course, water filter and two water bottles.
I am also carrying dried food and a nut/raisin mix. enough for 4 days, so will need to resupply fairly regularly
Maps, compass, head torch, sunnies and spot.
Not shown, but still to be carried, Phone, Camera,
Tent, obviously 🙂 a first aid kit and a toiletries pack
