Gear

Some of my gear:

  • Osprey Aether 70 backpack and cover.  I spent 3 hours at REI trying on backpacks before deciding on the Osprey.  The standard sizing did not work for me, so the shoulder straps are from a large pack and the waist straps are from a medium pack.  It’s comfy.
  • Big Agnes Copper Spur single person tent w/groundcloth.  Freestanding, lightweight tent with just enough room for my sleeping bag.
  • Nemo Nocturne 15 sleeping bag.  Treated down in a extra-long, full-size bag.  I’m a side sleeper and I can’t stand mummy bags.
  • Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite sleeping pad.  Lightweight and insulating.
  • Jetboil Sol camp stove.  Boils a liter of water in less than 2 minutes.  Impressive.
  • Merrell Moab Ventilator hiking boots.  Lightweight and quick-drying.
  • Various clothing made from tech material or merino wool.
  • Nikon A110 waterproof point-n-shoot camera.
  • Aqua Mira purifying water drops.  Kills the bacteria and viruses found in untreated water while imparting very little taste.
  • Assorted odds and ends like a small med kit, guidebook, soap, cloths, TP, iPhone, string, etc.
