  1. great video guys. i like seeing what other people carry. especially since i am also on a very tight budget it helps to see what others find useful,so i can hopefully make better choices when finally upgrading gear.we all know how expensive some of the lighter weight options can be and i would prefer to get those expensive purchases correct 1st time around.a lot of my gear is pretty old and dated nowadays and in desperate need of an upgrade .cheers guys love your professionalism. Gizmo

  2. That was a great overview of your gear and video gear. All of you seem to be far from ultra light. To each his own, bring what you have and like to bring. The only way to get to ultra light is to spend big bucks, which is not for everybody. I really like your style of hiking and will continue to watch your videos.

  3. a bit bulky for me guys (weight is personal preference) much respect…btw, I was in Israel last year when my trees produced…can we get together on email about that fruit leather I was promised you all last summer? my mulberries and blueberries just came back for the season and it also looks like my nectarine might hold a few fruits and the peach is doing great…lemme know

  4. I was nearly going to buy a Spot when I first saw it, but after a little research I discovered a slightly upgraded device and went with that. It's the Delorme inReach (which has since merged with Garmin), and has the added advantage of two-way communications so that you know your emergency signal has been received, and you can even send and receive messages via SMS and email, or post to social media (but you can't see replies or post photos, it can only send text to the website). It bridges the gap between the Spot and a full satellite phone rather nicely.

    It's not overly accurate. I used the tracking feature this week and the uploaded coordinates had me crossing a river multiple times. But at the bottom of a gorge, in the thick overgrowth, on an overcast and rainy day, I don't think much more can be expected from a little safety device.

    As for the hike, I failed miserably. I soaked all my gear and abandoned the trip. I obviously need to work on waterproofing. I think I was a little overconfident after my last hike – a 160km solo trek – basically went off without a hitch, probably due to near perfect weather for the full 10 days.

    What do you do about thick scrub? I don't see how a rain cover would have helped me. It would have been a shredded mess 5 minutes into my hike, so I didn't even put it on.

  5. For hiking as much as you guys do you should look at down bags. They are half the weight (or more) and compress far smaller. I got a zero degree bag from a company called Outdoor Vitals for around $200. It nearly doubled the leftover space in my bag after switching from synthfil to a down bag.

  6. You guys do not actually have that much gear, so you should consider upgrading/downsizing your pack to something like a ULA Circuit pack–thru-hiker tested! You will save weight right off the bat on one of the big 3s and still have plenty of room and load capacity left (remember, nothing is comfortable passed 40 lbs). Other things to consider down the line: you can sacrifice or find lighter (and relatively cheap) alternatives to some of the compression stuff sacks that you're packing; inflatable pillow instead of stuffed pillow; warm quilt instead of sleeping bag; trash compactor bag on the inside instead of rain cover (more effective, dirt cheap); the list goes on! With some investment (not as much as you might think!) and thought, you'll easily lighten your load whilst having sacrificed none of your creature comforts. And perhaps you'll be able to take that extra lens or camera slider that you've left at home in the past. Happy trails and continue to make great content!

  7. Hey guys, nice video as usual. I have a question about patreon. I have never used the platform, but might be interested in helping you guys out. I saw that you can pay a certain amount per video, like a subscribtion. I was wondering for how long you'd be subscribing at once, or if you could choose that yourself? Also, would I be able to cancel at any point? Thanks again, good travels!

  8. Because y'all Cary so much camera weight to give us great VIDs the rest of the gear should be as light as possible with out compromising comfortability.

    You should try and find a sponsor like Zpacks!

    If you cannot get a sponsor then you could do a go fund me. I know all of your viewers like me would definitely fork up some money to keep y'all going and help getting some ultralight gear.

  9. Very Good! You guys bring extra gear, but the cooking parts of the videos is fun to watch. We backpack lightweight and our cooking part is more predictable. A little boring! lol All of the camera gear helps make amazing videos! Keep up the great work guys!!
