That looks like a good kit for that time of year, as long as your hammock setup is early-winter-tested. I'm real keen to see what it weighs in at.

(P.S. didn't realize where this was posted, should we be replying to these threads?)

Great job there. Very thorough.
Do you have rain gear in there?

I'm carrying a poncho (under "shelter & sleeping") which depending on weather forecast, I may substitute with a goretex jacket.

The trip in question is scheduled for the 24th of May.
