What's in your elk pack part 2 - Sleep System
« on: April 20, 2018, 02:49:03 PM »
Lets roll with part 2 of this super awesome series of threads on whats in your elk pack.  What do you cats have in your elk pack for a sleep system?  For the purpose of these threads, lets assume were talking about pack in hunts.   

I carry the following: 

Tent Nemo Hornet 2 Person w/footprint
Bag VIAM Outdoors 10 degree quilt
Pad Klymit Insulated Static V
Pillow Klymit (cant remember the style/name)

Chair (if Im feeling energetic) Wildhorn Terralite
Cot (if Im feeling really energetic) Desert Walker Outdoor UL

I may end up packing in my Luxe Megahorn Tipi this year so hunting partner and I can camp/hunt in style (and have a bit more protection against the late September Idaho wilderness area weather).  Of course with the Tipi goes the Lite Outdoors Titanium stove.

Well, what's in your elk pack for a sleep system?

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
