      What piece of backpacking gear are you dreaming of?

      Is it finally time to get a new pack? Does your heart skip a beat when you hear the words "new stove" or "3-season tent"? Go ahead and dream out loud.

      I cant wait to get the Sea to Summit Micro MCII sleeping bag. I love it because of its versatility. You can use it as a mummy bag, rectangular, quilt, or blanket

      New sleeping bag and pad combo, something large enough for my extra ordinary size.

      I am new to backpacking and am slowly accumulating my gear.  Got the pack, and the tent...what I would really like to get next is my sleeping bag... a Mojave +10 Down Sleeping Bag!

      Arc'teryx Beta FL Jacket. I have allways wanted a $450 jacket this jacket is bullet proof. It's one of those pieces of gear you will own for twenty years.

      I could really use a lightweight tarpuline shelter. Especially heading down to the Grand Canyon next month for a rim to rim trip. Keep me out of the sun and rain when I need to, but be small and light when I don't need it. I could use any tarp really but it would be nice to have one with mounts for trek poles, but they're always too expensive.

      Milk bones and somebody else to carry my heavy pack filled with dog food and water.

      A 3 or 4 season tent sounds pretty awesome. I would really like an MSR water pump/filter, a steri-pen, and at some point a pocket rocket so I don't have to rely on others.

      a good lite hammock rain tarp would be nice.

      I really want to get a nice 4 season tent.  I have several 3 season tents which I love and they see a lot of use throughout the warmer months...  Since they are all I had, a couple of them have even been used for winter camping.  My single person tent can handle 4 season use but is tiny.  So I'd like to get a good 2 - 3 person tent for camping this winter.

      I have nearly everything I need. Right now about the only thing on my list is a good backpacking hammock.  I'd like to discard the 1 person tent for solo trips. I've settled on the Warbonnet Blackbird hammock, alas I can't use my dividend toward it because REI doesn't carry it.   I could also use a 4 season tent but being spring that isn't a priority at the moment.  Now that I think of it I could use a new backpack.  As much as I love my Gregory Whitney's features, I don't care for it's empty weight of almost 8 lbs. I'd like to shave a few lbs off my pack.  Next year.

      Right now my heart skips for "3-season tent" as that is what I need to really get out and enjoy. I have an Osprey Kestrel 48, pad, and down bag, so I have all the necessary camping gear but the tent. I am just trying to narrow it down to a tent. I want one that will be my go to tent as I do not want to buy multiple tents. So, that is what I have been researching for some time now.
