Some Micropur tabs would knock off 241g....
Standing around on a (admittedly Scottish) fine evening with Mike last summer I had all my layers on (including a MB UL down jacket) and was still chilly - then again if you don't anticipate standing around...
I hardly ever use the tabs unless it's a pond in Scotland; I tend to go for 'side streams' that look 'right' (not very scientific I know - but it's worked for 35 years)...
My only available pre-filter would be a buff...or similar.
Nice report BTW.
Didn't see your water holder but if you have a bladder then IIRC drink safe systems inline filter weighs about 70g-ish. Perhaps that would be better. Used to be less than £40 too. I've had the runs on a week long trip and it isn't really that nice. Still, I always have immodium just in case.
nice trip report. Brings back memories of my trips in that area. Like the promontary on angle tarn. Mates once got kicked off it by a load of geese. I often see geese up there. Bloody noisy birds at times.
Love the trailstar. If only money allowed.... I suspect from the number of photos that had it in you like it too!!
Good luck with the TGOC. I want to try it one year. Until then I'll have my usual week up in Scotland. Just over 1 month away and I'll be in the hills. Solo too. When is it? Isn't it in a week or two??
