Cacoon Ultralight Microfiber Towel

No matter how I tried to find a light towel, trying to wipe clothes with their subsequent drying, the degree of discomfort during the experiments significantly exceeded the benefit in weight. Therefore, I still decided to purchase this accessory.

Sea-to-Summit TPU Guide Pack for documents and phones

The main argument for choosing a particular case was weight. Sea To Summit TPU Guide Accessory Case with a score of 25 grams won a comparison.

When travelling at your home country, as an identity card, usually it is enough to have a driver’s license with you. It is not afraid of water, so take care of its preservation is not necessary. When it comes to trips abroad, the list of documents is expanded with a passport, insurance, tickets and reservation of a hotel or hut.

Jacket PATAGONIA Micro PUFF – Better than down

Synthetic Down - Patagonia Puff Jacket field testing
Patagonia Puff Jacket

Micro Puff® is the lightest and most compact padded jacket ever made by Patagonia. This even reflects the slogan that accompanies the release of new items on the market: “Take nothing with you”.

Weight and compactness

In terms of weight and volume when folded, Micro Puff really represents literally “nothing.” The weight of the model with a hood is 264 grams, the weight of a model without a hood is 235 grams. And this is a jacket with insulation! Both options fold compactly into your own pocket and in this form are similar in size to a wallet, so finding a place for it is not difficult.

We do business to save our home planet.

Modern Patagonia brand is one of the largest and most famous manufacturers of clothing and equipment for climbers, tourists and all who are interested in outdoor activities. And it all began many years ago with the modest manual production of climbing “iron” and developed into a simple, but such a complex idea. The idea is to grow a business where financial performance and growth rates will remain in the background; a company in which employees will feel free and secure, as in their own family; a company that will not only not cause harm to nature, but will also be responsible to it.
