    The kilo thread made me weight my 62mm cpl filter + box :

    my list for my next 2 weeks hike ( i should be able to charge batteries every 3 days ) :

    em1 : 497
    12-40: 380
    batteries : 3(-1)*50: 150
    charger : 120
    uk adaptator : 25
    polarizer + box : 75
    dust blower : 57
    lenspen + microfiber : 20
    cuben fiber : bag 60

    I thought i could cut some weight using screw cap, and i bought the JJC one.

    unfortunatly, for hiking it is a bit heavy at 52g.
    I have tried some myog dyneema + microfiber pouch but i want happy with the result.

    any lighter ( non metal ) screw cap ?
    or any light box ?

    i could also buy 2 cheap filter and could use one on each side but i would prefer finding some light resin or plastic screw cap.
