Can you hear the Snap T Fernando?

A place to chat about gear and the philosphy of ultralight. Ultralight bushwalking or backpacking focuses on carrying the lightest and simplest kit. There is still a good focus on safety and skill.
Forum rules
Ultralight Bushwalking/backpacking is about more than just gear lists. Ultralight walkers carefully consider gear based on the environment they are entering, the weather forecast, their own skill, other people in the group. Gear and systems are tested and tweaked.
If you are new to this area then welcome - Please remember that although the same ultralight philosophy can be used in all environments that the specific gear and skill required will vary greatly. It is very dangerous to assume that you can just copy someone else's gear list, but you are encouraged to ask questions, learn and start reducing the pack weight and enjoying the freedom that comes.

Common words
Base pack backpacking the mass of the backpack and the gear inside - not including consumables such as food, water and fuel
light backpacking base weight less than 9.1kg
ultralight backpacking base weight less than 4.5kg
super-ultralight backpacking base weight less than 2.3kg
extreme-ultralight backpacking base weight less than 1.4kg

I can see five reasons it may be called a Snap something, as for the T - nothing.

T -shirt.
I'd be tempted to snap one up if they get a bit cheaper than the sale price they are now. Just something about that look. Two tone, little pocket.
Maybe as no-one is buying them they will gave them away haha. The lady at Patagonia says they keep selling out of the 'snap T fleece' version. Apparently for some reason, it's very popular. I think the Houdini sounds like it lost of it's appeal a while back when it lost a lot of it's breathabilty and others cheaper with equal or greater breathabilty popped up?
