Kit list for my Black Mountains weekend

As per request, I have added the kit list I used for my weekend jaunt to the Black Mountains. The caveats to remember are that it was a 12 mile walk in, wildcamp overnight at 2100ft and 8 mile walk out in the morning. Also the prevailing temperature in the day was mid teens Celcius and at night approx 5-6 Celcius. Light rain was expected but no heavy downpour and a strong SE wind with gusts of up to 40mph were forecast.


My total weight “skin-out” at the beginning of the trip was 8548g of which 2349g was worn, the rest carried. If I did the same trip again I would ditch the Unna and go for a low profile tarp saving another kilo or so. Itemised list as per below:
