Value Scale for the Weight Obsessed

February 13, 2011

If you are serious about cutting your gear weight, you need a scale to track your progress.  A friend of mine found this great value scale, the Taylor model 3831BL.  (The BL stands for Biggest Loser, for the TV series.)  It has a nice range, up to 6.6 lbs which will cover everything but larger tents.  (And you can usually weigh your tent in parts, separating the fly and/or poles from the main body.)  Plus it has a high resolution…tenths of an ounce or single grams.

This scale is available at for about $16 delivered, or at for about $20, but not in Walmart stores.  Happy gram counting.
