My Locale Coastal Southern California
About Me I have been hiking and backpacking since my Boy Scout days in the 60's and 70's. In the past 6 years I've become more interested in lightweight backpacking and hiking. I started a Pacific Crest Trail Hiking and Backpacking Meetup Group that is actively section hiking the PCT.

Sub 60
I received my pack too. Very innovative. I look forward to using it. I'd say that one good use would be as a pack for kids to grow into or used by Scout troops and shared.

My opinion...
On the trail, I've been bitten by dogs, tripped by dogs, jumped on, and awakened by dogs. I'm sure all the owners thought that their dogs were "good", "well-trained" do...

Frogg Toggs Rain Suit
I tried a set of these and returned them right away. The fabric would be OK, but the sewing and sizing are terrible. These are apparently designed for fat people: To get even close to adequate len...
