I added up a similar and very specific list a few days ago. The price of this full kit list today could easily make a grown man weep to get it under 10#.
Total is 8.9#
* 2 pair of socks liner and a med weight
5.25 oz/ 150g
* boots/inner boots
2# 8 oz/ 1134g Scarpa Phantom 6000 with Baruntse liner
*Long john bottom
166g/ 5.8oz wool blend 166g /5.8oz
602g/ 21oz bib in Polartec's Neoshell/ Power Shield Pro/ grid fleece interior
220g / 8oz Patagonia lwt fleece zip T
340g/ 12oz Westcomb Shift 12oz
(or combine the two with a Arcteryx Venta MX 22oz / 628g and save 1oz. )
*insulation/ wind shell layer
RAB Xenon Hoody 311g / 11oz
Mtn H Nilas 631g/ 22.2oz
Mtn Hydra 262g / 9.25oz
Arc. Rho beanie
36g / 1.25 oz
Lots of different combos available. This is the best I could do for the warmth involved and a systems approach. How does your gear's weight measure up to 1984 standards? And the more specific question I think, "how much better/warmer is it?"
What on earth is a hollow biner?? Yikes!
State of the art bitd. The best wire gates beat them for weight now.
Sorry, they aren't in production yet. I have a pair made from the same Polartec Neoshell Marmot is using for the Zion and a pair from the Neoshell laminated to the same material Patagonia is using for the Northwall jacket and pants.
Both rock. I have high hopes for the Northwall version. Weights are virtually the same. You'll see some side by side comparisons here soon.
any commercially available equivalent? i really need to replace my old patagonia softshell pants. any recommendations?
Patagonia Northwall pants..•Polartec Power Shield Pro with a Regulator high-loft grid fleece interior. Amazing fabric.
