    suppose other than weights related to food and water, it will come down to area,season and luxuries. if your going for a few days are you gonna be passing re supply points and are you going to find water and treat it?
    johnnyboy on here has kit down to a tee in my opinion, have alook at that i will try find linky!

    not always, sports direct has quite a bit of gelert gear. there are better brands, but not at that price point!

    My sleep kit is now reduced to the following :-
    Tenth Wonder tarp'
    DD hammock
    Czech Army Bedroll with a cheap Tesco 2 season bag (I've had this bag a few years now and only been cold in it once) and a foam sleep mat - which means as the weather warms I can remove layers as necessary.
    The bedroll is the best thing I ever bought in my opinion, it's so multi functional

    Cheers Buddy
