In a previous video I talked about lightening the load and, specifically spoke about reducing the weight of your sleeping kit, from gear which is too heavy, over-specified right down to a really lightweight set-up.
In the video below, I’m going to show you how the lightest of the combinations looks all set up.
Now I know a few people are going to be dubious if it’s going to be protective enough compared to what they are used to, so the purpose of this video is to give a fuller account of this lightweight tarp, bivvy bag, sleeping mat and sleeping bag combination.
Lightweight Bivvy & Tarp Components
The following is a list of the sleeping equipment – tarp, bivvy bag, sleeping mat and sleeping bag – shown in the video above.
The total weight of this system is around 1.60 Kg/3lb 14 oz, the exact amount depending on how much cord you attach to the tarp.
