Would you believe us if we said that your complete weekend camping kit list, including your trekking rucksack, tent, and outdoor clothing, could weigh under 10kg? Probably not, but we’re here to prove it’s possible, just follow our ultimate camping kit lit for your next ultralight weekend adventure.
The Terra Nova Laser Competition 1 (970g) is the ultimate solo backpacking tent; it’s lightweight, three-season suitable, weatherproof, and breathable, and best of all it can be pitched in five minutes flat. DAC Featherlite fabric keeps the weight low, however you’ll need seam sealant to make this tent 100% waterproof in more extreme conditions.
(Sealant will add a few grams onto your pack weight but we will not add it to the final total.)
The Silva Expedition 4 (50g) is an excellent navigation tool. To monitor your route and collect advanced data while you’re trekking, equip an ultralight GPS watch like the Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire HRM (186g) as well.
Total weight approx.: 8.999kg
With 1kg spare for extra food and treats!
