Sea to Summit Equipment

Anybody have any long term experience with this brand of equipment?

I need to replace/upgrade some of my older equipment and am wondering about the durability. I am pretty old school and realize that durability and lightweight don't always intersect. As an example I use the MSR Dromedary bags, I know that they are all but indestructible, but weigh.

As an example the 10 litre Dromedary bag versus the StoS pocket shower.

What I have typically done in the past is to carry a 6 litre dromedary bag on the rear rack, by the time I get to camp I have warm water for a shower, refill the bag and I have water for cooking. The whole MSR shower and bag arrangement weighs in around 385grams vs the 120 grams for the pocket shower.

Hi

I am probably a little biased as they are a home town company for me but I have a few pieces of their gear and they are always on my short list when I am looking for new items that they also manufacturer.

Good Aussie gear
