    when I walk back quite a ways I just take the essentials, 1p tent, lightweight sleeping bag, food, some extra clothes. When I can drive my truck to my camping spot, its mountain luxury! Wall tent, stove, blow up mattress, shower, coolers, the whole 9! However, hunting isn't nearly as serious when I drive my truck and meet my friends!

    I have a northface, (Which was give to me) and a Kelty I believe, I always sleep cold so, I bought a -15 mountain hardware from sierratradingpost.com and have yet to try it. If you sign up for there email thing you get an extra 30% off. The northface and kelty pack into an incredibly small stuff sack which is really nice. the new -15 bag is slightly larger but I also order the long version. Let me know what you think

    the extra weight of my bag will be worth it to me if it keeps me toasty! 5 lbs is a lot of weight

    When backpacking in for multiple days (10), I use the lightest, most compressible items I can. Every ounce I save on equipment allows me to pack more food to sustain my entire hunt. The heaviest items we pack on long hunts is generally food. This is what I use:

    Big Agnes SL1 Tent; BA zero degree down bag (Pomer Hoit); Integral Designs Siltarp
