ANATOMY OF A POCKET PROFILE™
Weight: 1.7 oz. or less
It's not how much you carry that counts, it's how much you don't have to carry. Cozys are lightweight and super efficient insulators which allow you to save fuel by keeping food so hot that it will continue to cook long after you have taken the pot off the stove. They weigh approximately 0.6oz/17g (BPL 500) to 1.7oz/49g (MSR 2.0L Alpine), depending on size, and will easily save their weight in fuel-not-needed on every trip over and over again. The cozy traps the heat in so food continues to cook long after you have taken the pot off the stove and will keep it piping hot for nearly an hour. “One of my favorite trail meals is Santa Fe Beans and Rice rolled into burritos. Normally this requires 25 minutes on the stove. With the cozy I just cook it for about 6 or 7 minutes on the stove and then place the pot in the cozy. I seal up the cozy by simply pressing the insulation around the top and let it sit. 20 minutes later the food is cooked and still too hot to eat. That saves me more than 20 minutes of fuel…every time. I boil several cups of water for breakfast and the cozy will keep the rest of the water hot for my second or third cup of coffee.” – Tin Man
NOTE: If you do not see your pot in the list at the right, then you need a Pot Cozy Kit.

This easy to use and light weight bear bag system will help keep your valuable food safe against furry foes, and won’t break the bank.
This system includes 50′ of 750 lb test flat braid Spectra line, a rock bag for easy and accurate throwing, a large sil nylon stuff bag, an OPSak odor proof storage bag, and a AntiGravityGear Biner; and the best part is the whole system weighs a mere 3.8 ounces!
The 50′ length of Spectra line makes it easier to find a place to hang your food over similar products which offer only 40′. The flat braid of the AGG Spectra is gentler on trees than round cord, and slides easily when lifting heavy loads after a big re-supply. The built in Rock bag makes throwing the line over a branch faster and easier.
The included OPSak odor proof storage bag is waterproof, odor proof, durable, and re-sealable to offer excellent protection against the elements and the escape of odors that might attract unwanted guests to your campsite.
The large stuff bag is easy to attach to the system with the use of the AntiGravityGear Biner, and provides added protection.
Weight: 3.1 oz. – 4.1 oz.
The AntiGravityGear Rain Pants are an ultralight, waterproof pair of pants that weigh next to nothing and will keep you dry and comfortable in just about any weather. They feature a flat braid draw string waist band with wide leg openings making them quick and easy to slip on over clothing and shoes. The higher cut waist helps to provide a little extra coverage preventing gaps and leaks between the jacket and pants. Sized generously to fit over your other layers and they make an excellent top layer for rain and wind protection.
Available in Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large; Short, Medium and Long Lengths.
Available in black to coordinate with all of our rain jacket colors.
Weight: 2.1 oz. (per pair)
Two 10’ straps of 1/2″ MULETAPE®. Oh, how we love MULETAPE®. So, much so that we don’t even mind that you can’t get it in any color but white. We knew it had to be a part of our QuickSilver Hammock System no matter what. This 1250 lb. test material is made of lubricated low stretch polyester. The MULETAPE® joins to the QuickSilver Hammock loops with a quick, simple and secure Becket Hitch knot. This knot is a cinch to tie, allows fine adjustments to be made with ease and tears down with just a tug. We’ve tested this knot in wet, cold and hot conditions. It holds strong and does not slip. And no hardware means zero weight added and fewer opportunities for hardware failure leaving you on the ground in the middle of the night.
A word about proper usage: We recommend using tree straps (or, tree huggers) that are, at minimum, 1 inch wide. This is good practice for protecting the trees we hang from. Furthermore, it should be noted that MuleTape has a loose weave and it will snag on tree bark. For these reasons, we do not recommend it for use without tree straps.
Use with our Polyester Tree Straps.
Weight: 4.8 oz. – 5.2 oz.
The AntiGravityGear Rain Jacket with Pit Zips is an ultralight, full featured, and economic waterproof jacket that weighs next to nothing and will keep you ventilated, dry and comfortable in just about any weather.
The AGG Rain Jacket has a separating front zipper with Velcro flap closures, 18″ long Pit Zips, an elastic gathered waist band, and velcro adjusted wrist closures.
Available in Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large. They are sized larger than normal to fit over your other layers and make an excellent top layer for rain and wind protection.
Weight: Less than 2.7 oz.
Make your own AntiGravityGear Ultralight Pot Cozy in less than 30 minutes.
In 2003 Backpacker Magazine awarded the sought after Editor’s Choice Award to AntiGravityGear for it’s Pot Cozy. Since then, we have enjoyed making custom cozys for our customers. We’ve also enjoyed watching as several have ventured to post instructions for making their own version of a pot cozy. We believe in making our own gear and, in fact, have built a whole business upon it. So now, we’re putting the tools in your hands to make your very own cozy creation.
Included in the kit are enough materials to create a pot cozy up to 8″ in diameter.
Weight: 1.0 oz.
“When you consider the normal cost of Spectra cord, the AGG TreeLine is an insanely great deal at $18.95.” – Will Reitveld, Backpacking Light Magazine, July 2007
AGG TreeLine is a stuff sack with 40′ of high strength 750# flat weave Spectra cord. Ideal for bear bags or hanging your tarptent, the flat weave slides easily over tree limbs providing minimal damage to the tree yet is highly abraision resistant. The cord-locked stuff sack is made of silnylon and provides a neat storage bag for the line but is made to use with a rock weight for throwing over tree limbs. I have found this to be an easy and accurate way to hang a line.
Priced right – $18.95 makes the 40′ Spectra line a good value but with the silnylon stuff sack this package is an insanely great deal!!
At a total weight of 1 ounce and a breaking strength of 750 pounds, this is the only line you need to take on the trail.
Weight: 27 oz / 765 g

Sometimes the best solution is the simplest. The Serenity NetTent provides a simple solution to keeping those creepy crawlies and pesky mosquitoes at bay. Its small 84″ inch x 26″ floor size lets it be setup in most any place. Unlike bivies with the mesh draped directly on your face, the Serenity’s 45 inch height lets you sit up in comfort. You can sleep comfortably knowing that some mosquito won’t be biting you through the mesh.
The Serenity has a large oversize door to make entry and exiting easy. No need to shimmy out of a long tube. The ends of the Serenity are 8″ tall. This effectively lengthens the floor and raises the netting off your face.
For hikers on the Appalachian Trail who spend many nights in shelters. The Serenity is the perfect companion. Since it takes up no more space than a bivy you won’t be crowding out your neighbors. Yet it’s easy to hang from the roof and guaranteed to keep the mice at bay.
The Serenity is the perfect mate for the Deschutes Cuben Fiber Tarp together the two make a great light weight double wall shelter.
On nice nights simply set it up by itself and you’ve got a great star gazing shelter.

All Trekkers sold by AntiGravityGear come with 5 Titanium Tent Stakes and a 5×9 Tyvek Ground Cloth… for free!
By popular demand the Skyscape Trekker is now available with a higher bathtub floor along the sides and now the crossbar is incorporated into the shelter so it will no longer get lost.
All Skyscape models utilize a dual fixed length 45″ or 115 cm pole support structure. We offer two optional pole types, Aluminum or Carbon Fiber. While both poles work well with the Trekker, the Aluminum poles are more affordable in price. While our Carbon Fiber poles are half the weight of the Aluminum poles.
The dual pole structure is slightly offset from the center of the tent. The offset yields extra head room when lying down, reducing that claustrophobic feeling. Further, it allows the Skyscape o be extremely rigid when guyed out, creating a structure capable of riding out the worst storms.
The Skyscape employs Hybrid Double Wall construction. Over 80% of the canopy is separated from you by a mesh wall, keeping that wet canopy at bay. The Hybrid Double Wall construction allows the vestibules roll back. On warm summer nights, convert the Skyscape into a net tent, pesky bugs stay outside while you enjoy the views and breezes.
The Skyscape’s large side entry door lets you easily enter the tent or retrieve gear . With floor length over 100 inches, the Skyscape accommodates the tallest hikers. You can carry a light tent and still sleep well.
The canopy and floor of the Trekker are constructed with silicone nylon. This fabric has been the work horse of fabrics used to build ultralight tents for the last decade. It’s main properties are its strength, light weight and that it’s impervious to mold or mildew.
The Trekker is a great when you want to be light but don’t want to break the bank.
TO SEAM SEAL WE RECOMMEND: SilNet specifically formulated for Silnylon.
