Hello to the Members Forum. I intend to go abroad to do year Trek. Still unknown. The options are in the United States or Europe. Until now I didn't have to fit equipment.

Right now can do, buying all the basic products, to be called by a relative who was supposed to come to Israel in about a month.

What I've done lately is looking for all sorts of Web sites (including the current Forum). Those findings and options found

Two notes: 1 I don't have experience with camping equipment and gear ultra light in particular, all מ"שיטוט" on the Internet and read the current site.  2. Arrival of family relative who was supposed to buy the equipment is next month so that there is a limit as to how long I need to send the details of the equipment you want to buy.

Some of the equipment mentioned in the Forum and I found a part in different sites (such as equipment lists of people on Traijournal http://www.trailjournals.com/index.cfm

Therefore, I would appreciate very much those who wish to comment and propose, but the amount of time I have to make decisions for equipment is approximately 8-10 days.

Basic sites where you can buy the equipment mentioned in the Forum:



There is another similar site: Http://www.backcountrygear.com/index.cfm

Another site with information about equipment Ultra light And in the Forum: Backpacking Light


Where there are tables comparing products of different companies in all sorts of categories.


Another site I found with gear Ultra light בלבד במחירים סבירים הוא:


As mentioned, the basic products for this type of trip (backpack, sleeping bag, storm, etc.) according to the best of my knowledge it is not possible to obtain (and, of course, the subject of prices)

Another question that arises is whether there is customs duties on these products. From what I saw on the website of the customs, tax has nearly 30% on backpack, for example. I wrote them a letter last week and to give an answer this week.

There are a few options for each product and each gave a link (I hope it's accurate).

The products are:

A sleeping bag

There are two well-known companies in the country, but apparently are very high: Was Best Friends

ו- Western Mountaineering

Feathered Friends

Link to the main page:


The model is called: Hummingbird

And the link



Western Mountaineering


And model called UltraLite Super  

And the link:




The model is called: Helium Reg

And the link


Also, should these sleeping bags Stuff sack

הערה: הטמפרטורה של שני הראשונים היא בערך -7C, הטמפרטורה של הדגם של Marmot היא -9C. מבחינה המשקל הוא קצת יותר כבד.

Another question about a sleeping bag is this: "can cover all year round, whether you want to buy a special sleeping bag for summer temperatures, if yes then you will probably buy one soft models of Western Mountaineering או של Feather Friends.

There is also the option to buy Liner Sleeping bag according to theliner adds a few degrees of temperature.

Possibility for example:


Within the link has an offer for two Liners .

Another link to the page of Liners באתר של REI:



ULA, remembered here in the Forum. the company is located in Utah, USA

The link: http://www.ula-equipment.com

In General, an interesting site and should, in my opinion (including the tracks made by the site owner, inter alia a course not known Hayduke Trail), according to a spokesman from quality casings.

About two Backpacks:

1. Catalyst


2. Circuit


I think the problem with him is that the volume of the Central/main body (Main Body) is too small.

3. company not yet mentioned, it seems to me, on the current site, called Six Moon Designes


Backpack model is Starlite


Storm suit:

Talking about Frogg toggs Sure and Chico show meets.

I think this is the link: http://www.froggtoggs.com/home.asp

What's not clear to me what model it is, how much and where can I buy it? Directions to suit.

There are more non-production models, such as Original AndElite,which is about model and where can I get it ?

For clubs:

One of the models of Gossamer

Fire-Fly או   Go-Torch


The site of Antigravity There is also a suggestion about evaluation of oalia:


Another product that I found interesting and quality of Ion Stove


About what equipment is required for clubs (measuring gas bottle, bottle of alcohol itself, etc.)

Another question: I saw something called Cozy , מה זה ולמה זה משמש?


Walking poles:

Link to information on the Poles (I think I already mentioned on the website) and I've found in the past at the ULA :


This writer's site also has articles about shells and equipment Down .

So far I used to go with. Now I buy one.

There are famous models Leki This is the link to the rodsultralight


I'm not sure what kind, if any, to buy. Obvious advantage of such rods is the brand of the company, reliability and service in the country, as far as I know.

But there are other types of rods that I don't know if they are current. However you want to check.

The site of Gossamer יש מוטות קלים:

Http://www.gossamergear.com/cgi-bin/Lightrek-Trekking-Poles.html gossamergear/

Should I buy this thing. If something happens, where and how can I fix?

The site of ULA The rods have a walk of Ocean Pole generatorthat these heavier rods, but they are very sophisticated and technically advanced.

And the link: Http://www.ula-equipment.com/pacer_poles.htm .

Link to the website of the company that manufactures these poles which explained the technology etc:


There are other walking poles are very easy (and costly) made of carbon fiber, Bozeman Mountain Works Whether you should even consider an option to buy these bars (repairs, warranty, etc.) ?



I think alternatives are as follows:

One of the models of Tarpnet , שנידונו כאן כבר. (squall 2, Double Rainbow, Rainshadow 2, Cloudburst 2), המחירים הם בסביבות 250$.


The tent offered here by Ronnie ( Gossamer) $ 275 via by model 400 Gr. of Rainshadow 2so I think the price difference is not so big.

But written here before that this is a new model that does not have much experience. Does anyone know still what are the benefits and drawbacks in addition to what is written here?

Link to a tent. Gossamer


What, if anything, to buy options (options) in addition to the tent?

About the weights of these tents, I'm not sure if I included it if you come with the tent poles or whatever used as rods these rods tent?

Another question, is it worth to buy extra pegs, repair sealants etc?

There is another company I don't recalled in the Forum: Terra Nova Quality English girlfriend, according to reviews.

The applicant is 900 Argon

Http://www.terra nova.co.uk/epages/terranova.storefront/45a8f089007b20762741ac1001400677/Product/View/43A900.

The tent weighs 1.16 kg (weight includes packaging). And is more expensive in terms of cost. But perhaps it is more qualitative models presented here.


Model of Petzl שנקרא  Petzl Tikka XP LED Headlamp


A lantern Priceton

Princeton Tec Aurora LED Headlamp


Socks and Liners של גרביים

Think of models Bridgdale שהוצעו בעבר באתר הנוכחי

Bridgedale Hiker Socks "


Or model called: Trekker hopes


In addition they have liners (both types):





I'm not sure exactly what the differences between them?

Another option is to buy socks of Thorlo

Another popular brand equipment lists Trailjournal הוא זה של Smart Wool


I think that by now the brand mentioned in the current site.


There are two new models Garmin I got the recommendation from someone who knows about the subject:





The difference is the amount of memory.  

Product link Garmin :


Another thing I want to ask is whether you can get water purification products such as those of Aquamira ומיכלי מים של Platypus, ואם כן כמה הם עולים?

These are the products I would like to receive the opinion of the members of the Forum. Maybe more, but these are added. As mentioned, I have to submit the list in about eight or ten days and Ode to the Forum members/companies who want to help me.
