    VIDEO: Summer Gear List (UL Status)

    I know there's been another recent talk about gear and how hammocks can be light weight. Here's a video of my summer season gear in which my base weight is 9lbs and I achieved a total pack weight of 24lbs with food and water:

    WARNING - It's a long series

    Thanks for the gear review WM. I have some time in a few days so I'll give you a look at my kit. We have a more than a few items the same (we're both styling).

    What size hip belt did you order with the Ohm? I got the larger one and it seems to have some good length to tighten it up. I was just thinking whilst you were talking about it, and thought you may get some better leverage on them by crossing your arms across to the opposite side to pull them tight? Just a thought.

    Great Vids as always.

    Very well produced and narrated, Raul. Thank you; this (and, thus far, all of the videos of yours that I've watched) is very informative for those of us who aren't used to the whole ultralight movement.

    If it's not, there's a product called New Skin (available at most pharmacy stores and Wallyworld) that's usable as superglue in addition to being a liquid bandage (it's superglue formulated for skin with an antiseptic already mixed in).

    My GF, who is a nurse, says the store superglue is just fine, tissue glue is not the same but no harm done.
