Tynan of Tynan.com

Either this guy doesn’t have a last name, or it’s one of the darkest and most well-kept secrets of the internet. I spent about 10 minutes trying to dig it out of the interwebs with nothing to show for it. He must have some childhood friends somewhere who know, but I digress.

Regardless, Tynan is a very interesting character. Just take a look at the About page of his websites, and you’ll find some fun facts about him:

  • He was Courtney Love’s roommate for 9 months
  • He only owns one pair of pants and two shirts. And a white tuxedo.
  • He was one of Time Magazine’s top 25 bloggers of 2013
  • The creator of Spiderman nicknamed him Quintessential Man
  • He hasn’t lived in an apartment or house since 2006, when he moved into his first RV


Onto the kit, Tynan does an annual gear post which is very in-depth. Here is his rundown for 2016 (actually posted in Nov 2015), detailing each item in his super ultralight 4.8kg (10.5lb) kit.
