    Looking good. I'm enjoying my Macpac Express 400. Not quite as light as yours though.

    Forgot the mention my Thermarest Neoair Xlite mat. Really light and packs up small, plus very thick if sleeping on the ground. Works well in my hammock as well.

    Neoair X-therm mat is unbeatable.

    Got one last week, it'll be bloody comfy by the looks, I'll still use the klymit inertia x-frame for warmer weather when traveling light

    Be interesting to see if you go back after a few nights on the neoair...huge warmth difference and why I went with the quilt.

    It's really more to get you off the ground a bit not so much about warmth. So if it's warm I'd still take it

    Looks a nice set up, Just tonight I started weighing and listing all my crap ( hunting gear) to see what/ where I can loose some pack weight!

    Always had a quilt in mind for my wish list EE Revelation APEX.

    Saw this YouTube the other week and the tent and especially the cooker look good as well, prob grab the cooker this week

    Went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn't find any.

    Yep got a Ti cooker off aliexpress...stupid light and very good. Beats the Soto. Ti MSR pot and others make a big difference too.

    @Tikka7mm08 be interesting to see if you think the quilt is good down to 20F deg? Some seem to have a rating that needs you wearing clothes in them?
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    Theyre funny things those ratings. Of interest is that I feel warmer in my bag just wearing my boxer shorts than I do fully clothed, explain that one!
