AFIX think weight data surpr ... I don't think you can use a pole (tent inside higher than feet) and must take the main shaft and the weight is without ground. Looks strong but more, what's the problem here? Weight? Absolutely nothing.

Ma, need to connect 2 walking poles with context. The weight specified.
Example link can be seen in the photos at the end of this page

You can also buy a device that connects with greater simplicity but it's unnecessary.

GOLITE's tent is made of thick, durable silanil (4 seasons tent and is also excellent in high winds), and again, is very spacious, from experience. With the image there are pyramids.

I really like that there is no ground-stick use cover not for States that do not need to download, you can cook. And allows a little more freedom in choosing the location: no problem with a rock inside the tent. The size of the tent makes it difficult sometimes to find a place.

Indeed, 650 grams without floor like we said, but no ground! I don't recommend this tent floor is like a bathtub and gives a lot of confidence against me running water under the manifold, water always flow experience if, in fact, to sleep in a tent without a floor, waking up at night for some American strong thunderstorm that means no sleep and used all the time around and see if water nchnseim not worth the worry.

Golite Ultra 20
Yes, I used this bag on the PCT and I'm definitely going to go to CDT.
For me this is a great bag, lightweight and compact.
The idea is that the sack of stars crash and actually provides insulation, so you can skip it and save weight.
I used it in combination with Z-lite pad is short, cropped him both ' bricks ' (along the torso only), at first I was blessed the tracks around the mattress, at some point I stopped.
I find this bag much more convenient for bedrooms are standard in der bag bag I usually find myself totally complicated this morning, because I've been around a lot of sleep with that bag.
Regarding the absence of the hood, you gotta sleep with wool hat (on cold nights, I met one guy who made himself a hat upside down for the Shek).
Regarding the heating, high Sierra, especially above 10,000 feet I had to sleep with all my clothes, but I haven't slept in a tent, I think we can handle the tzlse bag-7 "as the manufacturer guarantee, lowest temperature I tried was 4.
The biggest problem of the bag is the band's connection to the body, all travellers I met one ripped ligaments, or both, at one point or another, so mine didn't bother me too much, just putting in a bag as I wrapped in a blanket.
Julie, aware of the problem, and they claim that they reinforce the next bdgem connections, if you are buying the k, I recommend just sew a little piece of fabric over the connections to them.

And one more word about golite's shoes, get away from them, they were also the biggest joke on the PCT, there was no one hiking his shoes lasted more than two weeks (!), they just break.

I hope I answered all your questions.

Thanks Assaf

How to make ה"חיבור" mattress? Why decreased the mattress?

I understand you, like other comments I read some Lite inaccurate result with their rating to 7 degrees (20 Fahrenheit)?

The connection is made using the strips around the mattress.

The mattress shortened in order to save weight and space.

I think the temperature rating is correct, but you have to understand the ultra Lite, claiming to have sleep with all the isolated layers have (+ tent) institutions to maximize the potential, etc.

And one more word about the konterle of tarptant, slept with him for several nights and stayed completely dry the wet bar and LEGO. (Of course, the seams sealed with silicone) Asaf a.39859.8366550926

Not sure, but it's more topical.

First, it is better to invest in equipment. In the end it pays off. I don't know what your budget, but you need to consider if the equipment is shipped to you from abroad, you will probably need to pay customs. If you have an address where you can send in the u.s. so the end will save a significant amount.

Also be aware that sometimes bring the shipment is delayed, if not bought yet make a delivery. Otherwise it could be that you have a problem.

In fact, most of the links you guys mentioned in one way or another.

Backpack:

I have the Starlite Of Six Moon Design, weighs 750 Gr. and does the job. it is recommended to put a dedicated pocket on the back upholstery (actually part of the mattress) you can buy one of their tents are also recommended (Luner Solo orshelter (Wild Oasis.

Http://www.sixmoondesigns.com/

If you prefer a backpack heavier so my recommendation is to Catalyst של ULA. נפחו 75 ליטר ומשקלו כ-1.4 ק"ג.

Http://www.ula-equipment.com/catalyst.htm

Sample pod size Meridian For offering too little in my opinion.

Also the model suggested by On טוב ואיכותי (Mariposa Plus של Gossamer )

The km

I'm biased in relation to ' bag Westeren Mountainreeng I have the model that your linking, I suggest you skip liner concrete also adds about2 degrees and prevents dirt bag ' (spaces are not mountains can bathe every day before bed) the weight of theliner is about 150 Gr..

מחירו 385$ (אני קניתי אותו ב-2007 ב-330$

I bought the bag and Liner באתר הזה:

Http://www.hikelight.com/sleeping_bags.html

But if you haven't bought yet, so I suggest you call before you buy (a phone number at the bottom of the page).

Rain/wind gear

As far as I can see there is this coat hat (hood), but is considered to equal quality.

If you want a product of Marmot , אז יש את ה- Precip Jacket, שיש לו כובע. לדוגמא

Http://www.backcountrygear.com/catalog/appareldetail.cfm/MA3040

But check the size and color you want.

What about storm suit, a concern might be to Oregon and Washington rain almost daily. I bought a storm suit Frogg Toggs alreadyabout these suits in the Forum. They are very easy and greenhouses.

Http://www.froggtoggs.com/ .

I have the DriDucks . לא שוקל כמעט כלום. עלה לי 20$.  Beware. When did not warn stooped tore the seam of my pants, but the top part of the suit covered the rift and normally where rain.

Http://www.froggtoggs.com/catalog/2008catalog/page24.asp

Water purification

I used the simple bottle Gatordate (This is a disgusting energy drink amrricai, but the wide mouth bottles are not wasting time on filling). water purification inaquamira.

Camera

Quality camera model, but it weighs approximately 600 Gr. with batteries. From what I've seen its price range 1550-2000 $ if you buy it in Israel. If you have the budget then definitely worth.

Pockemail

Why buy Pocketmail I'm not sure if such a thing still I think can take cell phones and send SMS to institutions cut costs to see if they could buy in Israel calling card and load it every time.

Cooking equipment

The alcoholic beverage of Caldera Worth the price as$ 50even simple alcoholia may properly do the job well.

Link of AntiGravity Which also has the above-mentioned alcoholic beverage:

Http://www.antigravitygear.com/products.php?cat=39.

Their site also has other types of equipment. Ultralight That might interest you.

Shoes:

If you can get a model of Inov8

Http://www.inov-8.com/Products-Terrain.asp-PG = & PG1 = 27 L & TID = 41

I read somewhere on the net highly recommended on the model Terroc 330 .

As a rule, don't buy shoes with Gore-Tex.

I have a sample of Hardrock Montrail (model 2007) went to give already about800 miles and almost new soles are not easy, but it gives them more durability, easy shoes high .

Http://www.montrail.com/Subcategory.aspx?top=1&cat=-1

Obviously missing from models of Trail Running Shoes Of known companies: Asics, New Balance, Nike and more I buy shoes in the u.s. because there are wide and each of the companies has a technology that few understand, just choose the model that you're comfortable with and start walking if it doesn't suit you then change instead.

Walking poles

Why only aseira. I think from the beginning.

And finally two comments:

* I recommend you shift days three southern split of Pct/jmt films distribution Up toMount Whitney

* Here is a typical view. I don't know how was the winter of the year, but in the summer of 2007 when I went up theJMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION is probably (hopefully drive me to finally complete the summary of my trip and upload it on a site)

Hey like I look not latched on to certain principles of uncompromising weight etc I was more attracted to looks I can use over time (even beyond thePCT) and, of course, just a healthy instinct I had in my experience (something that just looks good to me specifically ).

Case granitegear meridian vapor . aware that small, but I really like the structure and the fact that he had a hat, except it seems like all the other bags rely too much on outside networks and bondage. What does each and tastes. (I almost feel like apologize for 400 Gr.). BTW-my final dilemma was between the Vapor Trail , and I don't rule out that we might change.

Shoes-buy in San Diego. Trail runners .

The k- golite ultra 20. save me some weight I liner use sleep clothing maybe Sierra.

Tent- cloudburst 2. tarptent again apologies for the ה"אמיתיים olteraliits".

A mattress. Ridgerest . ארוך.

Probably to take thetoo- DriClime Windshirt . Why people don't like the new one, how about this? Also against wind, rain, I take the Marmot Precip .

-Camera probably to buy Canon PowerShot SX10 IS. Or take the first man- Canon S5, what concerns me is not the weight of the camera but the batteries she consumes.

MP3- iAudio 7.

מה Pocketmail. I guess I take phone and buy there prepaid sim cardI hope I can upgrade to a phone that can send him emails if anyone has any idea how that works when you go abroad (network of t-mobile phone, with the country) so please private message me (or new topic.).

Rods-not yet.

Water purification. Aquamira .

Cooking-alchalia of cans. Greese pot מwall mart .

Besides, I wanted to point out some trail angels who made contact with basic (one was enough sometimes) helped me and saved me a couple hundred bucks. Amazing and inspiring!

By the way-and bag. Tarptent (Invitation to trail angels in San Diego) invited to stores, so you save postage and have instead if I want.

I'd like still all insights. Especially the little things that changed you. Thanks to everyone for the help so far. If anyone wants my email- idoyofe@gmail.com

Hey

Buy rods. I bought the last time first and you don't understand how it is. Don't know which routes go to today but you need to understand what is a magnitude and distance as you're going to go. Buy rods.
I also have the Ultra 20. It is very good.

About Tharp. I bought the konterle and slept with him in the Himalayas in 5,000. And had as big. Also available from skoolle had a great name.

I don't know what the case, reflection, but if you like and bought new case so congratulations and good luck to him was born.
I'd still like to know why you chose it and why you chose the Tharp.
If so why this mattress rather than Z-LITE.

You plan to enter into Canada too?

Into Canada?. Just let me finish some 4000 miles before. I dare to take it for granted.

Mattress-many say he survives. For 20 g preferred to take. Short tops.

About the Tharp and case really like I wrote they seemed. I preferred a little more weight to indulge them. I have a great love for the diocese and a shot of all my gear. Besides, I expect to travel with a partner in some. Also in Israel have nothing to do with solo tent. A $ 260. Regarding the case I liked very much the model is relatively easy (don't kill me) with a hat (also naipch the pouch). It's also a small limit. Evil and good-or I'd loaded and carries as a rookie.

4500, but who's counting.
Oh well, another year too in PCT. After the first will be in Nepal and then New Zealand.

Waiting to hear your experiences from the past year.
Good luck and have fun.

* Starting the countdown toward the beginning and Kick offby what I saw on their website this year fewer people registered last year, perhaps because of the economy.

* Why to take the DriClime And thePrecip, are more or less equivalent "," only of Precip also has a hat in addition the Driclime slightly heavier.

* Write the gentleman Bill helped save money. If you give me details regarding which subjects (probably related to equipment). I think this is interesting and beneficial for people who want to go in.

* In addition, write us when you get a chance. Must manage the Forum will open a sticky thread that people can react.
