Gear check

Since I’m always grateful for gear tips myself, I’d like to list a few of the basics that I use. I am extremely happy with everything listed here. I updated the sleeping bag/air mattress since I was often cold although the "old" items got plenty of good use too.

Backpack: GoLite Quest (pre-2009) / Gregory Deva 60 (2009+)
Tent: Mountain Hardwear Skyledge 2 (hope it lasts forever)
Sleeping bag: Mountain Equipment Classic Dragon 750 (pre-2009) / Western Mountaineering Antelope MF (2009+)
Air mattress: ThermaRest ProLite 3 short (pre-2009) / ProLite 4 short (2009+)
Stove (gas:) Primus Classic Trail (pre-2009) / Optimus Crux (2009+)
GPS: Garmin Vista HCx (2x)
