    Talking Video: Fronkey's sub 10Ib Hammock pack base weight.

    Hey everyone, lazy Fronkey here and I finally whipped up the "What's in my pack" video showing what I carried on my thru-hike last month. After my huge nightmare I explain what and why I carry the things I do while I'm out on the trail. Tala shows off what she carries on the trail too.

    Base weight is at sub 9Ib and my Skin out weight is sub 13. Thanks for watching.

    Hopefully you have some info on that modded Jam you're rocking there (I believe you mentioned some time ago modding the straps as well!). Looking forward to seeing this!

    The pack in the video is a different Jam than the one you are thinking about. However, I will explain it tonight on this thread explaining exactly what I did.

    THanks man. I actually did lose my knife and that's why the cropping is different in the video because it took me awhile to find it. Lol

    since you are allergic to wasp have you gotten to the point of carrying an epipen yet?

    Good stuff Fronkey.

    Seeing what others use is always good. It helps me learn more and the video was both fun and informative and I love your hiking buddies.

    During your opening, I shared your panic. What a nightmare!
