ULA Circuit360was mostly happy on the PCT. perhaps too much space for current gear build. was too big toward end of PCT after sending back items. there are lighter packs, but i trust this one. low replacement priority.13.8518753I mean, if i absolutely have to, i can just have my other 20 mailed to me and i'll stack them on top of each other....

GG Thinlight, possibly with 2 of them. 2 would weigh 5.2 oz2.60protects the neoair from puncture and adds insulative value to sleep system. functions as a camp seat. lightweight pad insurance. worked great on the PCT12.076875Unless it is ABSOLUTELY ALWAYS WORN, I have included it into my BPW. I include potential snow travel gear into this list. A purely blue skies summertime trip would have a much lower BPW.Hello everybody!gear spreadsheets are super useful! however, all these weights are estimates or listed manufacturer weights. i will post a total measured weight when trip is finalized.

EE Enigma 2020.80unhappy with quality and warmth of current lightweight bag. BRIGHT ORANGE so i do not get shot by hunters when cowboying. also important to have some bright colors if i need to flag down helicopter. As it stands, too much of my gear is black or a dark color. great for drying it out in the sun, but terrible where hunting is popular. was harrowing walking through washington even wearing bright red everything. must make better effort to avoid getting shot.safety and energy efficiency > weight savings at all costs. confident in ability to make good decisions on this and still be very light given possibility of severe cold. weight for items ALWAYS worn or in hand not included on this list. (minimum clothing, trekking poles, shoes, sunglasses, hat, etc.)

Marmot SuperMica100convinced it's an appropriate balance between weight cost durability given last year's horrendously wet hiking seasoncolumn A is the name of the itemcolumn B is the weight of the item in ouncescolumn C is the cost of the item in dollars only if i do not yet own itcolumn D is where I describe an items usefulness to me so I can determine if I should take it
5
Borah Gear Down Jacket5.150to be worn almost exclusively in camp or in the sleeping bag. for when the temps really dip. wished I had a down jacket on the PCT, and this one is very light and warm. expect CDT to be colder than PCT. down problematic to hike in, but i suppose if cold/dry enough outside and used as farthest mid wont be a problem beyond compression from pack straps. 10d fabric not exactly bullet proof but quality of product seems very high.column E is the total weight in pounds of mostly CARRIED gear (not including food, water, and consumables)column F is the combined cost of unacquired gearif row is filled this shade of yellow, i am not dead set on which item of this function (e.g. rainwear, shelter, etc.) i will use. items possibly a placeholder.
6
Patagonia Cap 4 Top8.70sleeping shirt. superb breathability. dries quickly. could be worn with just a windbreaker for activity on colder days. in love with it, though i suppose not absolutely necessary. warm when it needs to be.
7
Patagonia Cap 4 Bottom5.70see above. i hope it is never so cold that I need to hike in these. paired with rain pants these are exceptionally warm when hiking. some cold + dry PCT mornings I wore baselayer + shorts until sun came up.
8
Zpacks Mitt/Fleece2.150hand weather protection and warmth was issue on PCT. lightest possible method to keep hands warm and dry. cannot wet through. possibly not durable enough for use with poles.
9
iPhone 5c4.650i will not buy a new phone for hiking. spend enough money as it is. guthooks guide awesome. alice + paul were great hosts.
10
iPhone 5c Chrg Kit1.40light, small, and necessary.
11
Marmot Essence Rain pant5.70taking .... dont really want to...kinda feels like a waste of money...to be used double duty as a wind/morning pant is the only way i could justify it... on PCT just hiked in baselayer bottoms until sun came up then took them off and they were dry by bed time...
12
MLD Cuben Duomid + polycryo ground sheet14.90weather can be truly terrible on CDT. lightweight, bordering on 4 season shelter. great protection. carrying this mandates i do not sleep where i cannot guy out. tons of space - shelters two in a pinch. pair with STS nano net if bugs bad.
13
NeoAir Xlite120was a little cold on the PCT at times, but hopefully improved layering + sleep system will counter this? will almost certainly replace xlite with an xtherm for the CDT. Was extremely happy with durability of neoair pads. UPDATE: jokes. sticking with the x-lite and going to sandwich it between thinlights if necessary. will send a nightlight for CO.... TBD.
14
Marmot blue fleece thing10.50kind of heavy. would like to replace, but otherwise perfectly good. this + cap 4 + windbreaker + borah down jkt + rain jacket should be warm enough for worst case scenario day hiking survival - an unlikely but possible circumstance on CDT. will not hike with just down layer. mandate multiple synthetic layers on myself. will replace with something lighter or better if compelling reason arises. was sole warm layer on PCT and was inadequate when it snowed but otherwise was plenty. perhaps go double baselayer instead for breathability? uncertain, middle to low priority. UPDATE: sticking with it, can't justify a purchase for a new one when there's nothing wrong with this one.... im beginning to realise i have way too many things for this trip. well, you know what they say....you pack your fears. no bueno!
15
Zpacks Rain Kilt1.90for warmer rains. useful enough and light enough to be a happy carry.
16
Zpacks Pack Liner1.90not a fan of pack covers. need some waterproofing. sleeping bag always in its own drybag for redundancy.
17
Petzl RXP + Cable50heavy, but too much fun to use and very bright. pairs well with rechargeable system. as with all my electronics, will need to be careful not to let dip below freezing to protect battery usefulness - was problem on PCT ruining cell phone. got for free. YOLO. i also have a BD spot i might use instead. hmmm. UPDATE: sticking with the RXP. too much fun.
18
Marmot old ion windbreaker4.70on the heavy side. would like to replace, but nothing wrong with current piece beyond weight. low replacement priority. breathes which is nice, not sure of stance on windbreaker purpose philosophy. UPDATE: will not buy a new windbreaker, cannot justify given acceptable condition of current piece. cost to save 2 ounces here? budget a little too tight, though not a terrible price for savings.not sure if i will carry it. windshirts seem to be going out of vogue. all aboard?
19
Anker 16000 external batt + charger10.70this might be more than i need, but I will need to power some form of rechargeable navigation device. most likely just my power efficient ambit watch used mostly for location finding and not for gps track following, but it does need power and will be important. need to test to make sure still functioning well. very low replacement priority. UPDATE: sticking with it. heavy but oh well.
20
Tent Stakes5.840definitely on the heavier side, but went with the lightest and most durable titanium combination of adequate holding power + length i could find. also have carbon sets, but dont feel confident in them lasting ~2800 miles and will not take on hazardous trips. will augment these with rocks on top when necessary.
21
Sea to Summit mosquito headnet10mandatory for bugs during day. bad enough even with it. cannot imagine going without it.
22
Sleep socks???0dry socks to sleep in a necessity to me not a luxury. wet cold feet worse than miserable. foot health management.
23
Waterproof socks - plastic bags???????will want some sort of protection for snow travel. a reaction to PCT cold weather experiences.
24
Extra walking socks??????socks get holes. life happens. can be used as extra hand warmth. i carry very few "extra" items, but I will carry these happily. I like injinjis and they are sort of fragile
25
Kahtoola MicroSpikes size large14.40did not need on PCT but will likely need at some point of CDT. safety bigger concern on CDT due to inadequate snow skill set as things stand. not certain which sections will require. watching weather at all times of year mandatory.
26
Goosefeet Down Hood1.30Going with a hoodless quilt, will need something warm if temps plummet. very lightweight option. down jacket also hoodless. serves an important purpose at minimal pack space and weight.
27
Ice Axe140will take some form of ice axe for san juans. possibly a black diamond whippet instead? UPDATE: will borrow from a friend for CO...not sure if necessary... feel a little silly worrying this much about snow for a summertime trip... cant wait to gain experience out there
28
Zpacks Beanie0.940warm, breathable, light. useful for both hiking and sleeping.
29
sony camera thing5.70used phone for everything on PCT and battery life was a problem due to this. carrying more rechargeable electronics this time around.
30
Tenacious Tape - without container??????super useful for field repairs of anything
31
Dry bags20will inevitably use at least one lightweight dry bag --- sleeping bag, possibly other moisture susceptible items
32
SPOT connect4.9???currently have one. not a huge fan. worked sporadically on PCT. possibly swap for something else. UPDATE: can't justify better purchase.
33
Lightweight Food Bag20for food storage and isolation from gear
34
Ursack Major??????bear bagging mandatory for parts of CDT. not sure if will use current BV500 instead. research required
35
Med Kit??????basic painkillers, poop stopper medicine, etc.
36
Small Leatherman Thing1.20scissors for tenacious tape + finger/toe nails at least
37
Deuce of Spades0.60for cat holes for pooping
38
Gaiters??????have a set. have never used them. i can see their utility though, sometimes i do have to stop to get small rocks and sticks out of my shoes. will consider using. placing them here to remind me about them. will likely be removed when acquired because they are always worn, never carried.
39
Apple Earbuds0.40gotta have music or books at some point. holding phone is clumsy while on move near town
40
Toothbrush??????zpacks makes a nice light one
41
Small Extra Guyline???3shit can happen. useful for when it does.
42
Ex-Officio Undies???0not sure if will take, but was nice to have extra dry pair. can see usefulness for multiple gila river crossings at least.
43
Bandana or Buff???0acts as a towel and a water pre-filter in addition to mild warmth and sun protection
44
STS Nano Bugnet2.90bought one. we'll see if i use it. seems a little less than ideal, but gonna give it a go with a proper pitch before i return it.
