Re: Re: Argon silnylon - Detailed Analysis Report

Re: Roll top
I think most manufacturers add length for a roll top, but I would shoot Joe an email to see what he thinks about it. The sizing really depends on your gear so it's tough to compare between diff...

Re: Help with Zpacks Zero Sizing
A small Zero is 1,700cu/in if Zpacks specs are correct. Add the roll top feature and it's probably 100-200 extra cu/in so that will probably get you there. The mesh pocket holds a lot also. I h...

ULA Ohm
I've had an Ohm for about a year now and have taken it on a few trips. It's very comfortable provided that you keep it in the weight range it's designed for. When carrying 20-25 lbs it car...
