We just released a new online gear/pack weight calculator app. The app is connected to a fairly large database (> 6000 items) of outdoor gear weights, and its interface is in a simple checklist format. Click on the gear fields to open the gear lists in their respective categories. Then, just click on an item to add it to your virtual pack (or haul bag).
If you don't see your gear listed, no problem. If you happen to know its weight, you can enter your own gear and have it saved.
This app is totally free to use, and you don't need to register to use the basic calculator. However, if you do choose to register (still 100% free), you do get a few extra features.
As you'll see, we tried to have this app apply to a variety of activities, including backpacking and backcountry skiing, as well as both rock and ice climbing.
This app was just released for testing yesterday, so we're looking for anyone willing to help us expose any bugs, as well as offer constructive criticism (i.e. suggestions for improvement). We're still adding dozens of pieces of gear everyday. So, who's a Gear Head enough to try it out??
Many thanks in advance!
