Hubba NX vs Copper Spur UL1
It's a good question. The Copper Spur UL1 looks a little better on paper does it not: Copper Spur UL1 is "trail weight" of 2 lb 3 oz. Floor 22 sq ft. Hubba NX is "trail w...

Now at REI, Same Price
Hey! The Hubba NX popped on REI for $250. I've seen a number of negative reviews, so I'm feeling plenty of cognitive dissonance for ordering (not the least of which is handing Jerry Brow...

No Bears in Denmark.
> for doing this Delmar! Looking forward to the results. Btw, we don't have bears in Denmark. BUT, we have 35 million pigs, and 5 million people. For reals? News to me. I thought you had ...

Golly, if they were carrying a 35 Kg baseweight, that would be 77 pounds, yes? I find the multiple reports of 5 lb base weight equally mind-bending. So, we put our faith in means and medians...

Granite Gear Crown V.C. 60
I'll also give the Crown a solid thumb's up. It's a no-nonsense, lightweight pack that performs well. I find it quite comfortable, and it sort of fades from consciousness with 25 lbs in it...
