Margaret's Bio

But the place which you have selected for your camp, though never so rough and grim, begins at once to have its attractions,and becomes a very centre of civilization to you.

~Henry David Thoreau

There are several different factors that can determine the best answer to your question, however, as a solid estimate, I would recommend 3500-4000 sq. inches. Stick closer to the lower end of the spectrum if you're a minimalist at all, but 4000 will give you plenty of room for comfortably hauling all of your equipment if you're not worried about weight as much.

This rain jacket will perform well in fairly heavy rain storms. Pit zips are great, especially in the Southeast where I'm from. I got so sick of all the warm humidity in my jackets all the time, and they perform well. It's durable enough, and very lightweight. Don't think twice about throwing this into your pack for a short day hike or backpacking trip. Recommended.

For the most part, this bottle performs well. It's durable and feels good. holds plenty of water, and I don't have to worry about any weird tastes. I have the hard, caribiner top on mine, and it doesn't cover the lip of the bottle. So, when my bottle starts to get muddy, i end up having to pour it into my mouth to avoid several dirty gulps. I would highly recommend the loop top lid if you decide to purchase this bottle.

The grill itself weighs 4 pounds, but you can't forget to count the extra weight of the propane. This will be a rather bulky option if you're just taking a dry bag, but it should be easy enough if you're not packing a whole lot else.

I've owned several pairs of these throughout the last couple of years, and they've been my favorite shorts for a while. The material is light and will wick away the sweat keeping you nice and cool throughout the entire day. The built-in belt will give you the peace of mind that they stay on your body. Not recommended for long hikes because the netting inside tends to start rubbing the inside of your thighs after a while.
