    Thumbs up whats your dream "kit"?

    i know everyone has favorites and most people here have multiples of stuff, so my question is this: of the stuff you can camp with, if you had to choose in a hurry or could only ever get one, what would you get/why?

    heres the list, feel free to add to it in case i missed the good stuff.

    1. Hammock (bug protection can be integral or separate)
    2. Tarp
    3. Warmth (can be 2.)
    4. Stove (assuming fuel is not an issue to find)


    just curious. this doesnt have to be a zombie apocalypse type situation, maybe someone told you youre about to be stranded on an island and you can pick 1 of each of the categories, so choose wisely.

    and this doesnt have to be brand specific so long as the type is universal (I.E. large cat cut cuben hex tarp)

    GO!

    Any gathered end with int. bug net. I've yet to try one I did not like.

    3. Warmth (can be 2.)
    Summer UQ, 3S TQ Down only

    4. Stove (assuming fuel is not an issue to find)

    Basically I have it pretty close, some tweaking would be nice.

    WBBB 1.7 dbl (want a 1.1 dbl...tweak)
    AHE Toxaway (maybe a HG cuben with tie outs I dunno)
    HG custom long/wide 3 season Burrow
    HG 3 season Incubator (would like a custom wide one...tweak)
    Crux butane/propane stove ( would like to try a Zelph Fancy Feest...tweak)

    Ain't that just about what we all are doing here, seeking the perfect rig? Then the vendors come up with new stuff and it starts all over again.

    Gathered end hammock, zip on bugnet.

    10 x 10 blue tarp, so I can make different ground shelters and get rainwater, and not worry about holes too much.

    one of the small burners, that just sit on the little tank of mixed gas. I am not picky about brand, just that small size.

    Any decent sleeping bag, that is easy to compress. I could do stuff to hang it like an underquilt if I had plenty of string.
    An emergency of my own making...is still an emergency.

    Realistically? My Thru-Hike set up.
    1. Nano 7 & BugSock
    2. Zpacks four season hammock tarp
    3. HammockGear 3 Season Phoenix (but possibly some sort of pod, depending on conditions) and JacksRbetter Stealth
    4. Pocket Rocket (Unless this is like a bugout bag we're talking about, in which case I'd want a little wood burning stove.)

    Unrealistically?
    The Warbonnet guys would make me a SUL Blackbird that only weighed 9 oz!
