The North Face just dropped a bomb on the world of backpacking. It’s an ultralight bomb, and it’s incredibly helpful, not harmful. The Casimir 36 backpack has one of the most easily adjustable hip belts (The North Face’s Opti-Fit Technology) in the industry and wears comfortably when filled to the brim. The Mica FL tent uses a single-pole system with vertical tent walls to ensure comfortable living space while remaining incredibly lightweight. The Hightail 3S sleeping bag made from 850-fill Hungarian goose down maximizes warmth and comfort without increasing weight. Together, the combination of tent, sleeping bag and backpack weigh just over 5.5-lbs! All of these items are available at Tahoe Mountain Sports.
