Backpacking List - Working towards ultralight

A new year brings new gear! I remember when I first started to buy camping gear, my goal was to see if I could get everything to fit into one bag. I had a large ALICE pack that was modded to fit more than the regular 50L capacity, but it wasn’t large enough to accommodate my hand-me-down synthetic sleeping bag and much of anything else. As the years when by, I did my research, talked to people with more experience, and over time I picked up items that were smaller and lighter. 

Below is a list and a video of where I’m at for the 2016 summer season. I still have some improvements to make, and if you have any suggestions or comments, please share below or on YouTube. I’d love to know what you think! Do take note though that I haven’t included my food, water or clothing. I’ll be doing another video to cover those items.

Although investing in the best filter is your best move, it shouldn't cost an arm and a leg, either. Check out this resource page and see one review of the Sawyer:

Not only does it provide a fantastic shelter from the elements, but it also adds a touch of comfort to the wilderness. It's a versatile addition to any campsite, whether you're enjoying a family camping trip or a weekend getaway with friends.

  25. I've been working on a project that involves IoT sensors scattered around the world, and the worldwide M2M SiM Card has been a lifesaver. Instead of dealing with multiple local SIM cards and complex roaming agreements, we have one card that handles it all. The ability to remotely manage and monitor these devices is incredibly efficient, and it's making a significant impact on our operations. The global reach of these SIM cards is truly remarkable.
