comment How do I determine if a tent can handle strong wind?
For 200euros I bought a model that you may or ma not find anymore. The Terra Nova Laser Competition (a classic). backpackgeartest.org/reviews/Shelters/Tents/… The similar model up to date would be I guess this: terra-nova.co.uk/tents-and-spares/all-tents/… The price is not bad AT ALL mind you ;)

saying that. patagonia΄s nano-puff is to be found for 125euros here in europe. is that something that would seem logical? or are there many versions of it?

weight is to be no more than 10kgs (trying to avoid above 8kgs too). 5c would sound like the temperature i´ll be finding.

Being trigger ready is not so much of a priority and yes you are right; I could put the camera inside and something else outside instead. Also I definetely do not want a bigger pack. I was just asking for ideas so I can avoid to do just that. thanks!

thanks for the input. i think i will go for: base layer: merino icebreaker second: a tight elastic polar fleece third: a windstopper / windproof jacket i hope it fits! reason for not including a down jacket. PRICEY!

i have that in my large backpack but I do not like things sticking out plus I want to keep it nice and uniform. i attached an image and edited my question.

that´s kind of one of the things I thought. Actually i thought of connecting a Cordura bag with two carabiners horizontally hanging from the back below the bottom of the pack. i will let you know how it goes on the field!

Thanks Ross. I had seen some of them already but I was referring more to attaching the camera on the bag.

ok. isn´t it a bit dangerous though if i do not see it? I mean i can understand it for putting it on a belt but a backpack? how do you imagine it working?

comment Is there a definitive list of the tallest mountains in the world that require little or no mountaineering experience?
Thanks for the Mountain Project link. I laughed when read Spain´s description: Small country with tons of rock. It's almost a crime to have as much rock as this country has.
