Gear for Shikoku - 2017

Target weight of under 4kgs including all.

Big four.

Pack - Zpacks Zero custom prototype.  I love my Zpacks gear for quality and lightness.
Sleeping kit - Montbell Down Hugger 900 #5 with Neo Air Xlite pad.
Tent - Zpacks Duoplex with Easton Poles for stand alone need.  MSR pegs.
Hiking Poles - Black Diamond carbon.
These are my big four items.  I plan to sleep out a lot this time as esthetic element of the journey.  I may shorten the neo air or get a short version.  I include the hiking poles as they are a part of every hike so that is why they are the "big four" .

Puffy - Montbell ultralight.
Rain jacket - Zpacks rain jacket.
Rain Pants - Montbell
Win jacket - Montbell Tachyon.
