The first hike of march allowed me to test out a lot of gear.
Tent with Neo Air under inflated inside.
Tarptent Squall 2 is impressively light and packs down small. It sets up pretty easily with either 1 or 2 hiking poles and 4 stakes. It affords enough room for one and gear , or possibly two tightly. This will probably be my main packing tent for a few years. Tarp tent products

Therm-a-rest NeoAir is a new ultralight product that’s ridiculously light and packable. I have a few reservations about it’s durability so treating it delicately may prolong it’s usage. I slept very comfortably on snow with a 1/8th Gossamer Gear Thin light foam pad beneath it. 15.5 OZ with stuff sack an patch kit
The Stickpic is a simple camera mount that allows you to take pictures from the end of a hiking pole. I’m not sure how much I’ll use it , but it’s kinda nice to take pictures of yourself from a distance. http://thestickpic.com/
