Ridgeway Fastpack

This all worked pretty well, see notes on changes I should have made in hindsight.

Packing List

Compact

0.66 kg
10
Cordage
1m 2mm Dyneema Core Line
3 g

Split into 2 × 2.5m, 2× 1.5m, an 2 × 1m. I could have done with and extra stake and line or two if the wind were worse.

1
Tarp
MYOG Silpoly tarp 170 × 280 cm
300 g

Good minimal size. Made from Ripstop By The Roll Silpoly XL. I'm going to add some middle tie outs for some extra pitching options when I get around to it.

11 g

Would have wanted 8 if it were windier

1

MYOG splash bivvy

Love the chest zip and no-see-um window. Could do with being a little longer!

1
Trowel
Deuce of Spades
18 g

I sort of hate this trowel, its got no padding around the handle at all, so it's just a sheet of metal. I need to wrap the butt of the handle in something.

Just enough!

5000mah would have been plenty

Water System

0.1 kg
1
Shaker bottle
Wide mouth bottle
34 g

I need a truly wide mouth bottle for mixing powdered drinks. Might just take the weight penalty of a 750ml cycling Bidon.

2
Soft Flask
Decathlon MH100 500ml
34 g

I prefer these to a water bladder as they make it easier to keep track of fluid intake. A wider mouth bottle would be better. I might get some of the ones with straws for hands free drinking...

Running Pack

Carries really nicely with this kind of weight. Can be adjusted very quickly from a slacker hiking fit to a tighter running fit in a few seconds. Volume is just sufficient. Were I using an inflatable rather than CCF ~3 days food would be do-able
