Ok, I know this has been done to death, and there's opinions and threads scattered all over the forum, but let's go over this one more time.
I am in the market for a sheep tent and pack that I can use on other hunts as well, such as moose, bear, caribou, etc.
I am looking for the absolute lightest, toughest gear made that is perfectly setup for extreme, extended one/two man 5-10 day hunts.
Tent Specs: Roomy, I am 6'5 and want enough room for myself, gear, and possibly for two. Condensation must be none to minimal. Lightweight 5lbs and under. Rain/Wind proof, must be able to withstand our typical Alaska extreme weather conditions. If you could buy just one Alaska/Extreme back country tent that can be used in the mountains as well as other back country hunting trips what would it be?
Pack Specs: Ability to carry 5-10 days worth of backcountry gear, Lightweight, neighborhood of 8lbs or less, able to carry bow and rifle, tough as nails. Overall comfort (I'm leaning severely to the new Barney's pack that's been discussed if it is in the neighborhood of 8lbs, any additional information is appreciated).
Sleeping Bag: Ultra lightweight, rated 0-20 degrees, with ability to dissipate water if clothing worn while sleeping is damp. Need a bag long enough to fit 6'5 length.
Any other gear, that you are fanatic about taking on your extreme mountain and backcountry hunts feel free to list and discuss.
I am really tinkering with the idea of developing a website that deals exclusively with extreme backcountry hunting topics, with gear review, videos, forums, articles, etc. One place organized well, with complete and thorough information. Any ideas are always appreciated.
Thanks for the advice, discussion in advance, your opinions are always valued, well at least most of the time.
