  Low-volume kayak, I guess?
  Posted by: WaterBird on Jul-01-13 3:43 PM (EST)
 

I've never even thought to weigh things for kayak camping. As a backpacker my weight is about 35 lbs. Kayaking easily allows far more weight and volume than backpacking.

For Georgian Bay I would not have a sleeping pad on the deck. I did that once and noticed a loss of control in the wind. In general I would say that self-inflating pads aren't the best choice for kayak camping. For that you want an air mattress, like the Exped Synmat, which is quite luxurious yet packs very small (by kayaking standards).

Which Thermarest are you using? Which tent and sleeping bag?
