Hi there.
It's been long enough and I promised ...
Check out my personal opinion about us equipment used for:

1. shell casings:
The shell of my wife and me was the Catalyst for my wife, ULA, he was very comfortable, all claims she tried pod (Gregory, Osprey) was less comfortable.
I wasn't comfortable backpack. The big belly very disturbed and he sat me relatively low when the abdominal belt is closed under the belly.
It made me bloody scrapes on the bottom what pushed me to close the abdominal belt casing on the abdomen, the entire pod sitting on my hips (before most of it was on my shoulders) and the shell was much more comfortable.
In the total weight of my backpack to backpack around 18 lbs and was very comfortable to carry.
One problem is the fact that no shell casing back with network system as to Osprey, in my case the meaning was that my back was too soggy. So the sweat-soaked room inside.
The bag held very well in terms of its resistance, except for a small rupture in best (I have no idea where this happened) he stood bravely all the auction provided him in the buttocks and plots in the surrounding rocks.

2. tent:
Our tent was Stratospire Tarptent 2.
Very spacious tent. We had a lot of space inside and even had enough room to fit in all the food, first aid, etc.
The terrace has easy pod on each side with enough space.
Moved one SA with the rain tent and seamsealing Henry did was holding very well, except once we had condensation inside the tent to protect us flowed pretty humidity and dew outside.
Very fast Setup after you understand it.
Disadvantages:
* Very smoothly. The first night was horrible. The shared completely within the tent and tent himself slipped on the tyvek I went under it. We settle this with massive escape Silicon diluted with mineral spirit.
* Hard to put stakes in the desert, break one peg in Tel Arad and Tamar-side second ankle. The small crater couldn't even stick pegs and there is no tent. The rest of the desert was actually pretty good.
* To fold the tent back.
* We had condensation one, not sure if it was because it was a good look on your internal network or that the tent itself.
* It is very difficult for construction under strong wind. Once we gave him and the second (garage Eva) used only online. Even if you start it tends to make noise in the wind when the rain/wind whipping himself, in your internal network.


Continued.

What the ULA scale Catalyst? What is the maximum weight he can carry?

My wife's small.

Not sure I can answer that. I was with 18 kg and the Backpack was comfortable.

Hello

Did Silicon bars inside the tent as I describe in this guide to prevent the plots? At what angle you put the tent from atiyavk to skate?

Tried to use stones instead of pegs in the ground?

Are you walking sticks for a tent or original that sticks? (But you need to order separately).

Agree about the stakes. Sometimes it's a nightmare.

About the fold-back of saw video on YouTube where a guy just compress the tent like storage bag with a sleeping bag. It worked great for him because nothing destroyed a total of. Don't know if I recommend it but it is also a way.

Frequently asked questions:
1. does the catalyst really suitable for trips to Israel? In terms of carrying water.
, Weight, friction resistance with rugged desert and the Galilee?

2. get a backpack? No it. Store or buy on blind?

Were not enough, we added quite a network of PES.
The angle was too powerful in retrospect seemed relatively straight, but not enough to judge her, but later tried to pitch the tent in a lot more places and also the our tyvek also siliconi treatment.

We tried, even bought laces for tying the tent, it worked more or less but was very cumbersome and held strong winds (tied stones almost the size of one and a half liter bottle)
We used our walking sticks.

The problem with that is it's not really in tarp just got two folding plastic triangles that make compression sack no longer apply. Must roll and fold the tent can be inserted.

1. I have a lot of tools to answer this question, Israel was the first leg of the trip, my wife and me 14 years and all the equipment we bought was the only equipment you really used it.
Us is fine, watch you're done in Acacia path, could be the last days שה5 for to Eilat would have left him. We know that when we finish it hopefully.
I personally fell on it a few times and we also split on the buttocks in large declines a few times well bag is very beautiful and it rock.
In terms of carrying water had a 3-liter's locker and side cells easily enter two more bottles of 2 liters 7 liters of water. I think that's enough. The case itself is not very big, my wife was considerably smaller than my (S opposite XL) and optimism.
Tent, inflatable, mattress, 1 l, 3 l saucepan locker closed (gas burner inside), food for a few days to both (rice/soup/mashed potatoes of Knorr, a loaf of bread, spices, etc.), clothing, big brass exchangers which served also as a pillow, flashlight and some more .... etc and was a little more space, the back had the tyvek rain gear tent and sandals.
In 4 liters of water side
The small cells of the belt had snacks on one side (North, South at Snickers Hilwa 100 snacks) and Gorp phone +

My wife was carrying in a Backpack:
The inflatable, mattress, first aid, two 220 g gas containers, cups, 3 locker, toothbrushes and paste, wet wipes, clothing and big brass.
On the back she had rain gear and sandals.
She had party cells 750CC bottles in each degraded red and on the other side a small shovel, toilet paper and alkog.

What's nice is that unlike other camping we met: us had no outside equipment backpack, even put trash bag in my wife's network so we had a very comfortable hanging out and we had no luggage "exceeds". I don't think many bedrooms were in this context but rather choosing the equipment.

2. my wife's parents live in the U.S. we invited him there and we measured it there was too small (L) by Chris's mind from ULA (I sent him photos) sent him back and he sent me XL instead (no extra charge for shipping).
In retrospect, the L was good enough for me, why he works for me, what I mentioned was XL in the first post-I was closing the abdomen below the belly and backpack sat down, once I went to close it higher shoulders straps were too high and there was little backpack (I couldn't look up, for example).
If you are flying to the USA is quite comfortable, Chris was kind enough to do a Video conference with us when we were in the country can match the backpack. GibsonLP 41048.4616782407
