    Myself I'd dump the shamwows, I like Handi-wipes. Dry fast and way lighter. And I know the speed is nice but I just cant imagine the carried weight of a Jetboil.
    It's only an addiction if your trying to quit

    I know what your saying about the weight of the jet boil but that's one luxury I'm not willing to part with and the large shamwow is for drying myself off with after a swim in the lake,river, or stream but I think I'm gonna ditch the two small ones thanks for your advice.

    This will likely be a long reply, this is whats in my pack when I am living out of it, and the list of stuff I take hiking is quite different and a much smaller list.

    For the purpose of making this ease I am not going to be talking about my clothing or food since depending on the time of year those things change but ill just post some of the winter things I sometimes carry.

    I spend a lot of time looking at gear, and comparison shopping... All of this has paid off for me now since I am very happy with my setup, I feel its a good medium of weight vs. rate and it gives me the ability to travel, sleep in urban areas, sleep in wilderness areas, and it give me maximum capability.

    This list is what I would consider my max amount of stuff often I have less then this, but for an extended train/outdoor trip this is likely what ill be having but sometimes when I go into the woods where there is the ability to make what I need I might only have some tools...etc. with me.

    On my person: I try to have on my person all the basic items in case something happens to my pack.
    1. El-cheap-o watch.
    2. Paracord bracelet (paracord has 1000 uses).
    3. A bandanna in a cargo pocket.
    4. Streamlight Stylus Pro flash light.
    5. Folding Pocket knife.
    6. Load bearing smoke jumpers belt.
    7. Leatherman Wave Tool with bits.
    8. Keys on a load bearing carabiner
    9. Cellphone
    10. A small Condor Tactical pouch on my belt that has the following items: Wallet, lighter, small compass, small riteintherain note pad, ink pen, and two pair of ear plugs.
    (Sometime there will also be more weapons on my person such as a stungun, pepper spray...etc.)

    In my pack: My pack is the no longer made Granite Gear Solo, I love the pack, but I think rememberusername hates his since he never took care of it and let it turn to ****, but if you care for this pack it will last a long ****ing time!!!

    Shelter System: My shelter is pretty simple.
    1. DIY Sil-nylon Hex Catcut hammock tarp.
    2. Adjustable ridgeline with niteize figure-9's.
    3. Titanium stakes.

    Sleep System: My sleep system is also pretty simple.
    1. DIY Sleeping quilt.
    2. Modded ENO Single hammock with straps, and whoopie slings.
    2. Size small Neo-Air sleeping pad.
    3. Tyvek condom for the Neo-Air for when I am on the ground and not in a hammock.

    Cook System:
    1. Snowpeak 900 Cookpot.
    2. Bushbuddy wood burning stove that fits in the pot.
    3. Titanium Sea to Summit Spork.
    4. Snowpeak 600 cup.
    5. Small coffee infusers.

    Water:
    1. Platypus 1 litter bladder.
    2. Platypus 2 litter bladder.

    Other: The 'other' stuff I carry is where I really spend time thinking about just what I have since this is one group of items that can increase your weight greatly if your not careful. Most of the things here are not necessities, rather small luxury items to make life better and add capability to my system.
    1. Toothbrush & toothpaste.
    2. TP & Hand sanitizer.
    3. Very small first aid kit about the size of my fist (to many small things to list them all).
    4. Umbrella (Sometimes)
    5. Work gloves
    6. Pelican 1010 case with my small digital camera in it.
    7. Radio shack PRO-83 scanner, with tuned Smiley Antenna, and ear buds.
    8. Small AA battery charger for my camera and scanner.
    9. Cellphone charger.
    10. 75-foot hank of paracord.
    12. Big *** marker for making hitching signs.
    13. Petzl head-lamp.
    14. Eye drops (A must have for an allergy sufferer)
    15. Kershaw folding pack saw.
    16. Strike Force fire starter.
    17. Ka-Bar Becker BK2 Fixed blade knife.
    18. Smiths diamond pen knife sharpener
    19. One trash compactor garbage bag that I use to line the inside of my bag when its raining.

    Paper:
    1. AP Timetable.
    2. Newest CCG.
    3. Newest NWT.

    Well I don't think I forgot anything, If I did ill add it later... I know it might look like a **** ton of stuff but anyone that has seen me and my pack will tell you that bulk wise it not a lot, and weight wise its about 16lbs or so.

    Winter time specific items:
    1. Adventure medical kits thermolite bivy 2.0.
    2. Wool knit cap.
    3. Mittens.
    4. Ear-muffs.
    5. Silk weight thermal bottom.
    6. Silk weight thermal top.
    7. Heavy weight thermal bottom.
    8. Heavy weight thermal top.
    9. A few pairs of wool socks.
    10. Winter boots.
    11. One photo of Shug!
    Some of my freight hopping adventures on film over at my YouTube Channel... Oh and there is other stuff there as well!

    Love the list, especially the sleeping bag. I've got the same one and have used it for years. The temperature rating is right on the money. I've slept outside in 32 degrees and been perfectly warm.

    Since I've evolved into a hanger my gear list is similar to yours. I've also got a crowsnest to add to my Hennessy Exped with a 2QZQ mod that I love. I'm taking it up to the Kings Canyon National Park later this month and will post some pics.

    I'm carrying it all in a Golite Jam 2 and switched from the jetboil to a diy mni atomic and a Foster pot.

    This is a cool thread idea, I like it... 2 questions for you based on your packlist.

    1) What's the sabercut for - do you just have it as an emergency item or do you find you use it regularly on the trail?

    2) How do you like the Flash 50? Would you recommend it? I have an REI Traverse 30 I like, but I've been seriously considering upgrading to the Flash 50 for camping since the Traverse has very little packing space.

    I think if I was goin on a long extended trip where weight was a major concern I might cut the weight of my cook kit and cut out the crocs but at this point im focused on the comfort and I think my big purchase next year is a top quilt and I'll droup about a 1/2 lb

    At about 5 oz the saber cut saw is worth the weight it allows me to get larger log size wood instead of searching a big area for sticks.

    And I would highly recommend the flash 50 I've used it several times this year and its been great also its not too heavy.

    I too am a fan of the UST Sabercut. It does seem to hang towards the end of the cut, but usually I can break the remaining wood at that point. Here is my pack list for an October trip to the Red River Gorge in Kentucky. It does not include the clothing to be worn, water, or food. The type is a little small, and I'll try to figure out a better way to display it and retain the formatting.

    Also, there shouldn't be a box next to the Burrow TQ, because I don't have one yet.
