@haidabear: Thank you for your advice. This thread was started in 2016 by someone else with a son.

We are two people, my wife (169, 68kg) an I (190, 87kg). My wife bought a Tatonka Yukon 50+10, I have an osprey Xenith with 75 litres. I think more than 60 l wonŽt work on my wife, IŽll carry the food for both and the tent.

I wanted to use a Carinthia Defence 4 (which I could get for free) but I really didnŽt like it, far too tight... really claustrophobic. IŽll get another one, too.WeŽll have a look on the Mountain Heardware Lamina Z Torch next weekend. Any experience?

Pad might be Thermarest NeoAir xlite. IŽm not sure if itŽs worth it.
