This is an interesting challenge, read the rules and have a think about it.
Darren over at the UK site, Whitespider1066 ,has dreamed up a competition to win a Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Daypack (plus yet to be announced goodies we believe) .
Great competition and worthy of having a go at meeting the challenge if you are up to it
The idea is try and get everything you need for an overnighter into an Ultra-Sil Daypack , and then go and spend a night out using what you have in the pack.
Darren’s rules are:
- The pack being used has to be the Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Daypack.
- Everything has to fit in the pack (not including photographic equipment). I’m going to allow no more than 2 litres of water to be carried in hand. So any more than that has to be found on route or near the camp site, or carried in the pack.
- You have to be able to cook a hot meal and make a hot drink in the evening.
- No pre dropping of supplies or equipment.
Frank received one of these great little packs for Christmas (we wrote it up here: Sea to Summit Ultra – Sil pack – a winner!) It is very tempting to enter this competition.
Now, the answer to the “interesting” part of the challenge is? You need to own one of the packs to enter and then win one…..
Ok, that being said, think of it as an ultralight challenge with the potential reward of a terrific new pack you can give away as a gift.
Do you think you could fit all your gear and food into a day pack for an overnighter?
What do you think would be the most challenging decision?
