    Advice please UL Scout

    Several years ago, I did a Wood Badge ticket called the $100 scout, I was able to build a UL kit together for a scout for about $100. Time jump to this year and I am trying to replicate but have hit a $150 wall. The intent is to help start scouts off at sub 10 pounds base with a kit they can grow quickly from the big 3(Pack, Quilt, shelter). Any advice is appreciated. Here is what we have so far: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    1. Pack $ Comments
    Quest Outfitters DIY kit $43.00 I have the patterns so just fabric purchase as little as $20. This is the clasic G-4 pack that mosr modern UL packs were based on.

    2. Quilt
    RSBTY DIY kit $50.00 this is the 2.5 Climashield quilt. It's a good summer to moderate temperature quilt
    Thru-Hiker DIY kit $60.00

    3. Tarp
    RSBTY DIY kit $52.60
    Rainfly for Hammock $24 Cheaper than kit

    Misc
    Coghlan's Mosquito Net $16.42
    Mosquito Camping Insect Net $14.99
    Hammock Bug Net $20
    Sleeping Pad $10

    Please keep this on the hammock topic. If it moves from hammocks to other gear such as stoves, cook pots, packs, etc it will get moved to the Donating member section which will do the OP no good.

    Thank you

    The word "Scout" and the word "delicate" do not go well together (I was a Boy Scout leader for 15 years).

    No worries, Please do close it down. We have a pretty lively discussion on this topic going on over at "Make Your Own Gear - Hammock Camping" on Facebook.
