Nemo-Hornet Elite 1P
Frequent Adventurer
What are Adventure Levels?

Nemo-Tensor Regular - Tapered
I Get Out Regularly
What are Adventure Levels?
For an aspiring minimalist, the sleeping pad category is one place to cut weight and volume from your gear spreadsheet in a hurry. The updated NEMO Tensor is lighter and warmer than previous designs, with a three-inch sleeping base that is ideal for three-season backpackers. A new zero-profile valve is easier to use and creates a sleeker packed shape. NEMO’s lightest-weight fabrics and innovative Spaceframe baffling make this inflatable sleeping pad a compact solution that doesn’t skimp on comfort or support.

MSR-PocketRocket 2
I Get Out Regularly
What are Adventure Levels?
While we don't recommend actual rockets in your pockets, the improved Pocket Rocket 2 is certainly powerful enough and compact enough to earn the name. Under four ounces including the protective case, this stove takes up less space than its fuel canister.

Platypus-GravityWorks 2L Bottle Kit
I Get Out Regularly
What are Adventure Levels?
Platypus took the already fast and easy-to-use GravityWorks filter system and came up with this smaller and lighter 2-liter version to fill your water bottles on backcountry adventures. Save time, and your back, by simply scooping up water into the dirty reservoir and letting gravity do the rest of the work. All you need is this kit and somewhere to hang the dirty water from. Within minutes, the water will filter clean through the hose into a second reservoir. Great weight-saving option for 1-4 people backpacking together.

What are Adventure Levels?
There’s a reason many long distance hikers haul their gear in an Exos. At just over two pounds, it’s the Osprey pack of choice for adventurers looking to go ultralight. This pack has stripped ounces but none of the comfort, as it still boasts the suspension and load distribution for which Osprey is known.
