Hello everyone,
I'm leaving in two months to the U.S., and wants to buy and ultra-pod quilt light celebratory occasion.

Operational requirements: I'm looking for great stuff to be versatile as say daily trip from Earth to the PCT crossing (if and when). Actually, I'd also want to match the equipment mountain travel, I don't think it adds constraints.

I think the quilt that:
20/http://www.enlightenedequipment.com/product/revelationx
I think it provides best value for money, and has pretty good recommendations in many places on the Internet. Is there anyone here that can give opinions and recommendations? (I'm torn about overfilling, and the length should take longer to quilt can also cover your head?)

Backpack-my research in-depth enough, but I found three bags that look interesting:
ULA's 2.0 ohms
Http://www.ula-equipment.com/ohm-2.asp
Mariposa and models and Gorilla gosamer's gear:
Http://gossamergear.com/packs/backpacks.html
If anyone has one of the pods I would love to hear opinions, and if it's not too much to ask, I'd love to make you try them on so I can preorder a quiet heart.

(Of course, if anyone have any other suggestions, I'd like to hear)

Thank you!

I needed of 10° RevelationX do not forget to specify the measures needed. Great for cycling and trekking.
The shells that you specified are ultra light and need to have ultra light gear for them including a quilt, clothing, tent because you can't overload from 9 or 10 pounds including food and water.
And this too that the backpack can crash and fall apart. 41386.9511111111 easyman

Well it's good to have more range extreme cold
Like high mountains even thought about enough on 20th
But it can always take a quilt doesn't close as ש"קש.
About pods olteraliit you realize you can't load more from k you for easy GRANIT as pod GEAR.
You can also load food and water. 41386.9626273148 easyman

Interesting, I never knew them.
Do you have experience with one of their shells? I would really like to try before I Pod ordered.

I have no experience but I'm thinking about,
And this from REI REI Flash Pack 62-Men's look at REI
These lighter shells weighing 1.4 Ultra Lite but not loading
Equipment and food and water you can load up to 16 pounds.
According to the manufacturer's instructions the maximum pounds off then pounds it. (Standard backpack weigh 2 pounds or more.) ...
And backpack should measure but can't report that buyers are taking a chance.
But these pods are well-known companies don't seem to have any problem with them.
There are also recommendations on good reviews about them. 41387.0219444444 easyman

Where the figure of up to 9 pounds I'm not sure there's a difference in ability between loading the shells:
The limestone gosamer indicate Max 35-pound capacity (= 9.8 KB) other pods.
The ohms indicates 30 pounds (13.6 kilos)
REI does not indicate this, but last time I was at REI I measured this model and it probably won't carry more than 15 pounds.

(Since most of my stuff has been pretty easy, I guess my backpack fabric weighs 10 pound area, but in places that need more water and food is definitely can get to 13-14 pounds and I want a backpack to fit)

Personally I prefer to gosamer ULA. But because the two companies produce comfortable shells carrying the superior equipment of preference based primarily on design and feel.
I have also have a 2.0 Ohm the kumo of gosamer and the reasons the best Mai-Ohm one better shopping I've ever done.
It is difficult to compare the two shells (and that's not what I wanted) because their properties are different.
With: carried on both 10 pounds. Most Mai way preferred the Ohm and probably end up going back to him more often.


I S scale pods so I doubt I can help you in terms of measurement, but you're still welcome to come to see if anyone else would be if your pod

I have the 1.0 OHM if you want MED/MED to measure.

The difference is only the lap belt (and a bit more padding on 2.0), so you can get a pretty good idea.

More than 14-15 kg wasn't carrying on is significantly less comfortable with these weights (10-12 lbs of fun).

OK, so the quilt of EE (rbliion X), I hope he will be successful.
The shells found in two pods that look like they'd rather the ohms.
First: backpack exodus of MLD:
Http://www.mountainlaureldesigns.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=25&products_id=185
Looks great, weighs a pound and "Ms." they claim allows to carry 15 ~. (Not that I want to travel with 15 pounds on your back, but in arid areas it looks like possible scenario.)
Disadvantage as the ohm, and shells, I think the evaporation of sweat from the back is very incomplete. Perhaps abroad, but in the heat of the Earth, it can be a nightmare. What do you think?
Also patented an inflatable back system is relatively new and hard to assess. Meanwhile the reviews I found, but not treatments as profound.

The Backpack II: Mark blast of zipucks
Http://www.zpacks.com/backpacks/arc_blast.shtml
More (400 grams), seems a little less durable but sweat evaporation system looks great on the back is separated from the case (of course it's a question of convenience carrying equipment-if the weight is far from this back pressure). Its maximum weight is slightly lower.

What do you think? Anyone have any experience with one of these pods, or met people who walk with them? Disadvantages/advantages haven't thought of?

If you can't take olteraliit pods 15 pounds!
Max 10 KB and it overreacted and should have UL equipment like a great quilt
And an inflatable mattress of THERM A REST 400 g like NEO to have titanium kitchen XLIGHT, oalia,
Or a gas burner 50 g, tarptant or tent weighing a kilogram above flip weighing about 300 grams
And lightweight clothing and toiletries and a second
All 350 g what I'm trying to do right now, and more.
The whole weight must be done accurately and patience and not efficiently dispense essentials and find them, and take away.
Take some lightweight backpack, but not too bad they fall apart UL
It's good to or UL.
And you don't need to carry water or tap water source at the end of the day, or streams, springs and rivers, lakes and water purification can obtain food every other day at least and don't need to carry food.
Especially suitable for UL to pod! There are water problems, especially in the South.
Buy a backpack as GRANIT GEER weighs 1.3 but strong.
Can take food and water. Especially the ZPACK UL it will fall apart very quickly. 41403.6210185185 easyman

Sure I have all the other equipment is extremely easy.
I think I'm not far away:
Considering the quilt, 666-inflatable mattress? Take a regular three quarters length (half width), it comes out something like 150-200 g
Cooking equipment-I started a while ago to travel without cooking, Meanwhile I want (it also saves a lot of water weight). If I break buy Cookware UL.
Tharp-I currently have Tharp of 600 grams (of Appy Trails) I think not suitable for wet places so (is great), I buy more tarptant when I get a serious trip abroad.
Reverse jacket and everything else in the near future planning.

You know the comparison reviews on life span of ultra soft shells compared to? The long-term durability is therefore an important factor (my current backpack 14, if he wasn't heavy I moved him forever ...)

I have some old Mariposa plus (another SIL-nylon, and the fabric more durable than theirs), and carried him 15 and 17 kg, in my opinion, need to carry plenty of water. Was not very comfortable, but this is isiman writing whenever it is impossible or less 15 kg with exclamation marks at the end doesn't make it more accurate.
The shell stood, and walked with him through the day without much trouble.
It is true certainly rather less weight, so you should base your weight as much addition to low water and food that will not be too heavy. But as stated the case stood.

For many reviews and comparisons, I like to follow thissite. There they also comparisons of standard cases, and ultra Lite files. Of sleeping bags, and bags ultra Lite, and many more categories. Of course, they have all the models and types, but it is interesting to read. (Fix: I couldn't find a comparison of files name ultra Lite, but maybe they will someday.) 41405.4202662037 On

Strengthens on said. With the OHM carried 15 kg this is beyond ideal weight which designed the backpack and was less comfortable, but did the job.
Incidentally, these weights come in a country only if you walk with water for two days in the desert, then that means that after half a day of weight decreases significantly.
If you are planning trips abroad that carry food for 10 days, then you might want a little more massive model.

About evaporation of sweat-it is definitely a downside of OHM (and other similar shells). However, it is quite acceptable to me (I don't travel in summer and the rest of the country is considered reasonable seasons).

Exactly what I'm saying is that backpack and carry all the weight.
Take 300 shell made ultra Lite and loading 15 pounds.
It's like forming the car's wheels.
Need to buy a lightweight backpack or 1.3 pounds some pounds.
And loading lightweight but there is food and water without backpack
Starts to fall apart and need to back system
The ultra Lite has push the mattress back system
On some models
Not even comfortable with weights over 9 pounds.

Ariel = serious back system is no small part of the shell, you have bigger shoulders, thick straps and waist band DNA, will the weight of the backpack, backpack normally even be lightweight.
Another point-a lightweight backpack still checking and therefore vulnerable to tears.

I plan on basis weight 2.5 kg and full "typical" of 9-10 kg, that's why I think I can afford a pod olteraliit.
The more I think about it, sweat evaporation system seems more important, adding points to zipucks compared with the exodus.

If anyone is interested, send an email with questions about the arc blast zipucks Member, about the durability of the shell (and for delivery to Israel). That's what they answered:

1) Sheryl and I thru-hiked the trail in Te Araroa NZ this year. It was about 1,900 miles, 4 months. Our Arc Blast packs held up really well. Sheryl's was in good enough shape that a woman in NZ store-bought supplies it from her while we were there, and she is currently in the US doing the PCT this year with it!

So I think I can safely say the expected life is more than one thru-hike. We'll see how the lady does this summer on her thru-hike.

On our own thru-hikes headquarter previous packs made from 1.43 oz/sqyd got alot of fraying, and were pretty shot by the end of our hikes. The Hybrid Imperial Navy didn't have that problem at all.

2) We can ship to anywhere. Priority mail to United States is $ 45.
