So has there been any discussion on the concept of hyperlite camping gear?

Ie the lightest possible gear on your bike? This is for shorter term trips <7 days.

I've started with a cubin fibre tent. They appear to be sensational.

I run a 3 wolfman Rollie medium system and want to come up with a super light camping system.

Anyone have a suggestion on how to carry one of these so they don't break?

Wiggy's bivy

Cool thread

I snagged this Wiggy's shelter off craigslist yesterday, haven't had a chance to try it yet. Supposed to double as a 45 degree sleeping bag for warm weather or you can use another bag in colder weather. Packs down to about 15" uncompressed.

I don't have the small one.

Broke the spout off my first one.

I prefer my hammock for warm weather camping.











Sick. I commend your skills!

Here is my new camp stove setup for going light.

The base is this Stanley cup I bought.


Everything fits inside, and I still have a fair bit of space inside. I will probably pack my coffee and tea in there also:


I use an alcohol burner with a homemade pot stand:


Here is the entire setup in cooking mode. I still have to put some holes in the windscreen(it is made from an oven liner).


Alcohol stove in action:


I only have $16 in the entire setup.
I could get it lighter by switching to an aluminum or Ti cookpot and spoon.

WR-R last weekend...

Total of 23 pounds on bike (5+ just for Kermit Chair). Hammock, Jet Boil, water filter, etc. Actually, my tire changing stuff weighs about as much as camping gear:



Later Saturday afternoon:


Our view from this campsite:
