Well, I ´m a little quicker than a snail, but I ´m carrying my home like they do. An ultralight tent, you can put it up in thirty seconds, in case there is a thunderstorm. A multifuel stove burns everything you might get, to cook tasty noodle meals. For the trips a high grade steel service has proved it ´s worth, which indeed is expensive but good to maintain. Aluminum looks unappetising very quickly because of abrasion. Cutlery: Army, basic, is all you need. Thermarest and a good sleeping bag are standard, then you can sleep everywhere. I like synthetic fibre better than down feather, because sometimes it is raining for days and if down feather is wet once… therefor synthitic fibre is heavier, a question of philosophy again.
