I love my undercling mike quilt, but...

A place to chat about gear and the philosphy of ultralight. Ultralight bushwalking or backpacking focuses on carrying the lightest and simplest kit. There is still a good focus on safety and skill.
Forum rules
Ultralight Bushwalking/backpacking is about more than just gear lists. Ultralight walkers carefully consider gear based on the environment they are entering, the weather forecast, their own skill, other people in the group. Gear and systems are tested and tweaked.
If you are new to this area then welcome - Please remember that although the same ultralight philosophy can be used in all environments that the specific gear and skill required will vary greatly. It is very dangerous to assume that you can just copy someone else's gear list, but you are encouraged to ask questions, learn and start reducing the pack weight and enjoying the freedom that comes.

Common words
Base pack backpacking the mass of the backpack and the gear inside - not including consumables such as food, water and fuel
light backpacking base weight less than 9.1kg
ultralight backpacking base weight less than 4.5kg
super-ultralight backpacking base weight less than 2.3kg
extreme-ultralight backpacking base weight less than 1.4kg

I own a aegismax and it’s great for summer only. Maybe I’m soft but sub 15 and she’s too cold. I have just ordered a undercling and can’t wait to try it.

I have an Aegismax windhard quilt. I’ve used it down to freezing with some clothes (Patagonia nanoair, capilene lightweight thermals, down booties) but I’m waiting for my undercling quilt, which looks like it will be ready in the next week or so. Can’t wait!
