I'm glad you've enjoyed the write up...
ukenout: The Backpack is the Arctery'x Altra 85. It is an extremely comfortable backpack when the weight is under 80-90 pounds. Above that the hip belt is not capable of keeping any significant amount of weight off of your shoulders and the straps (although extremely comfortable) are too thin for extreme amounts of weight and will dig into your shoulders. The pack is very light weight and perfect for all my scouting trips etc. Some of my buddies use the Mystery Ranch packs. These are better for packing large amounts of weight as the shoulder straps are a better design for that application. The down-side of the Mystery Ranch (in my opinion) is that they are too heavy (when empty) and quite expensive. One Pack I would like to get my hands on is the Kifaru... I was looking it over at SHOT show and it seems they may have a superior waste belt (it was claimed they could keep large amounts of weight off the shoulders) and they were lighter than the Mystery Ranch models I'm familiar with. If I do get all of these packs together at some point and pack a few animals out with a Kifaru (which I don't own yet). I'll be sure to do a write up on it.
The Tent is a Eureka! It's a 6lbs., two man, three season tent. I don't know which model it is but I'm sure it's not a current model. It works well but I did write a review on a sturdier, heavier, four season tent here The North Face Mountain 25 Tent Review
These types of heavy duty tents are typically not necessary. I went though a faze were I was content with only a bivy sack... I grew out of it
Airborne trooper: Yes I used the same 7wsm. It's an awesome rifle... "I'm packing confidence"
