Here is most of my gear, minus a few things in the laundry or that I forgot to get out of a closet (quick dry pants, UL equinox full length poncho, socks, t-shirt).
As I noted in another post, a fair amount of this was acquired under varying circumstances, so probably not an ideal setup, and I do not know all the weights, but it meets my needs for the most part.
From back left to right front: -REI Quarter Dome UL tent -Jansport Big Bear 82 backpack -3/4-length ridge rest sleeping pad -Keen waterproof boots (comfy, and are also my regular around town shoes in the winter) -1 L bottle (came with steripen) and 1 L Playpus bottle -Kovea Supalite stove and fuel -Stoic 750 mL pot -Gerber 450 knife (on top of pot) -Steripen water purifier -Toothbrush -GSI insulated mug (fits inside pot perfectly) and Vargo spork -Bag of food -Alpaca sweater
“Essentials bag”: cord for hanging food bag, Commonly used first aid items, fire starter, polar pure iodine water purifier, wool hat, emergency blanket, handkerchief, Suunto MC-2 compass, bag with pen + white duct tape, emergency contact/medical information, thermometer, small watch, Princeton tec headlamp
-Long-brim hat -Garbage compactor bag (aka, waterproof backpack liner) -Mini expedition, homemade first aid kit in dry bag -Mountain hardware Lyell sleeping bag, with stuff sack (yes, it is huge, I know).

Thanks @DannyMilks. I thought I would come back to this post, although I haven't had time to lay out or weigh all my gear again. Since this picture, I have been using a smaller pack more (a Mountainsmith PCT 45) and sharing the sleeping bag, i.e. using it as a quilt. It is still huge, but at least virutually cuts the weight in half by helping two people stay warm. Also went to a Klymit air pad I bought here on Massdrop, which is very comfortable compared to the foam.

Tyvek groundsheets
I see alot of people on here looking for different size groundsheets for thier tents. I am a contractor from Minnesota, this is how I create groundsheets for my tents and for some of my friends. I side and have homes and businesses sided as part of my business. I have to buy rolls of Tyvek and other brands of underlayment for siding. All technical (other than tarpaper), underlayment will also work as a ground sheet. These rolls of underlayment are sold at virtually every lumber yard. For a less expensive option get rolls of this material and cut it yourself using either a razor knife or a scissors. These rolls are readily available in 9' x 50' or 9' x 100' rolls for as little as $45.00 us currency a roll. In addition you can buy 2 story rolls 18' x 100' rolls but those need to be ordered. In other words save money, cut only what you need and exactly what size you want and either sell the rest or save it or cut it for you friends..

Mac and Cheese for the apocalypse
Am I the only one who thinks we should start a drop for some apocalypse mac and cheese? So, when do we start buying hamburgers by the bucket? Soylent is probably more efficient to ship, though. I need to know what to line the shelves of my bug out bunker for when the big one hits. [image]

Many times the doctor sends people to "exercise", or we may think that we need to loose some weight or get fitter. We need to start by checking the SI joint (gait) as well as the Inner Ear and Vision.......... Please, ask, comment

What happened to Drop Outdoors?
Drop used to provide a great range of low priced outdoor equipment. In the past I have picked up great bargains on fleece, jackets, hats often provided by name manufacturers such as OR, Rab, marmot and the like. This has really contracted in the last few months. I get that the profit margin on overstock items from large manufacturers is low and that Drop is a business, not an organisation designed to provide me with variety. I also get that the profit on in-house development is high - the massdrop x-mid being an example of a high quality and really well selling product. That said, I have to lament the lack of range of produce evidence lately - really is little reason for me to even browse. if it wasn't for the watch community, and my watch collecting interests, I wouldn't even look at Drop anymore.

I have no idea how drop really works in terms of getting items onto polls or whatever, but I was wondering what the chances are getting some airsoft gear on this site? Specifically some popular...

Whats new on MassDrop?
Hmmmm, I've been away from MassDrop for a couple months, decide to check-in and see what's new... ..... Hmmm, NOTHING... All the same stuff I was seeing months ago, I don't see one single thing thats new or different, and not one of the expired Drops that I'd "requested" be re-offered have been re-offered... What's going on? Is MassDrop fading away?
