Until I found this site, I did not realize how poorly outfitted I was. As was recently commented on another thread, I have spent piles of money on new "necessities" and need to stop before I get overrun. I still would like to update trekking poles and water filters before I leave for Alaska, otherwise, I am updated.

What have you found that you couldn't life without after reading Rokslide form?

I have bought lots of mountain gear lately. But most recently I bought a Liberty Safe the Franklin 35

I'm looking at some treking poles as well

About a $1000.00 IN KUIU clothing and a SL-3. Hope I don't have to work thru hunting season to pay for it. :) Next years budget is a pack. I currently am using a Cabelas Frame pack. Heavy but it actually fits pretty well. Wish it had load lifters though.

I thought I was outfitted quite well...Then I found this sight and learned I can cut about 5 lbs or more from my base weight but it will cost me $500 or so... Having said that the reality gear thread is a good read and a good point... People been getting things done in the back country long before Kifaru,Kuiu and Sitka... The better gear just makes thing easier and more comfortable...

Terra Nova Zephyrous 2, synergy footbeds, elk nuts play book, apxg2 L3 jacket (off camofire today ;)) and tomorrow going to the archery shop to get my hunting arrow set up and finalized with broadheads, spin test, and final tune. Still have a few other things to get. I try and pick a few items a month.

My gear budget required careful management WAY before Rokslide. This year the main thing has been all new optics. Just had some Zeiss conquests arrive in the mail. Before that it was raingear, a new spotter, lighter rifle....

I just tell myself either A. "my old stuff was worn out" or B. "well at least I don't buy as much stuff as the Moffits!" :D

Vortex Viper HD spotting scope
Leupold Rx 1000 rangefinder
1 dozen Easton Axis arrows
Gorilla tree steps
Elknut grunt tube
Tenzing 1250 pack if it ever comes (back ordered forever)
Redram merino wool underwear
Camelbak hydration stuff
Probably something I'm forgetting....

now that I total it up I'm way over budget!

Not funny Yk!!
The trials and tribulations of being married to a full fledged gear junky are magnified 10 fold because there are two of us!

I called him this morning to ask if he had recieved an email update on an REI order I placed online last week...he pulls it up and starts reading me the shipping info, then says "wait a minute, that's for the REI order I placed...."

Gonna need a handtruck at the Post Office...again!

Since I started this, here is most of my list (not completely inclusive):

KUIU: base layer tops and bottoms, 185's & 250's, attack pants (several pairs), guide pants, vest, jacket, Chugach rain gear, backpack 3000 & 6000, gaiters. Gloves on preorder. Added: Spindrift jacket
Schnees Granite boots
First Lite Red Deserts
Kifaru Slick bag (on the way)
Neo air pad

Good thing I had gun and optics. Not all the KUIU was ordered after I found this site, so I can't blame you all for the damage to the bank account.
