Gear Grams - Pack Weight Tracker

Postby Rock_Rat on Fri Jan 22, 2010 3:53 pm

This is a useful tool I've started to play around with that lets you keep an inventory of your equipment/weights and create list to tell how much any given combo will way. It will also break down your weight by category in a nice pie chart.

Thanks for the link. I have always measured my gear with a bathroom scale w/me on it vs. me on it with the gear. I don't have access to a smaller scale. How are you weighing individual components?

I have a digital kitchen scale that goes up to like 10 pounds. My larger items like the pack and my quilts had weights listed on there web sites.
