This is my current camping gear setup to match my Advanced Elements Airfusion. The idea is to be as light as possible without sacrificing to much comfort in a set up compact enough to be able to maintain a not so crowded deck.
This gear has been tested on multi day trips of up to 7 day on temperatures rating from humid 35 degrees Celsius to dry 15 degrees C
The packed set  is intended to be carried like a normal checked luggage  combined with a”generous” on board bag.
