Hello everyone. I am heading on a trip to Arkansas in maby jan or feb for about 3 to 4 days in the back country. I'm taking my fast pack EDC with me in this on this one. I was looking for some insight on what to pack. I'm trying to get an ultralight set up but I don't mind weight at the same time. For shelter I have been looking at eno hammocks and rain flys because they are rather light and packable. I have been looking for a good sleeping bag or something like that along with all the other goodies such as stoves and what not. Basicly I'm lOoking for recommendations for a ultralight setup for this Pack.Thanks guys for any help!!
TAD fast pack EDC packing question

For UL, IMO, do not take your TAD pack. Â I have both the TAD EDC and LiteSPeed, and when I go camping/backpacking I use a GoLite Jam. Â Â For shelter I use the Lightheart Gear Solo Cuben, it is very expensive, but the do make a SilNy version. Â Big Agnes makes some nice, light tents as well. Â A hammock will work as long as you always have trees to anchor it too. Â Here on the west coast that can be an issue.Â I use a MontBell sleeping bag I picked up for about $100 on sale. Â It is down, weighs one pound and is rated to 30F.Â Also, remember that 4 days of food will be fairly heavy. Â On a 4 day trip, the food, water and bear vault make up almost half my total pack weight. Â Â For a stove, I use a Evernew alcohol stove and a Titanium cooking/drinking cup. Â For 4 days I would take about 12oz of fuel. Â I seem to average about 1 oz of fuel per meal.Â There are websites that can give you a TON of information on lightweight backpacking.Â I am by no means super UL, but my 4 day trip total pack weight is about 23lbs with food, bear vault and 2 liters of water. Â Better than my pack weight of nearly 50lbs 2 years ago.
