I knew my pack was too light. I need to carry books written in Greek.

Ken: I'm still trying to figure out if I can make it work to go. I'll let you know as soon as I can. If I can go, I'd be up for an East Bay carpool.

Re: TRT- 165m
Thanks for posting Jay. I heard a rumor that Tony is hard at work on his photo essay, so we should be getting the whole trip online soon.

Re: Short MLD Exodus Owners?
I love my Exodus, and I have a small (I'm 5'8" and have a somewhat short torso) but if she carries 20 lbs or more in the pack she will feel significant weight on her shoulders. So I g...

Re: Re: RE: Sept hike
The third weekend of Sept. doesn't work for me, so I'll have to pass on this trip. I might be able do the 2nd and/or 4th weekends of Sept., but those weekends may also be tough for me, so ...

I have taken the FS Exodus on 2 trips this summer with very different circumstances. Both left me very happy with the FS. First, in July, I hiked 130 miles along the PCT in the Sierra. For this t...

I have to add my two cents about MLD's service. Early this summer I damaged the bottom of my Exodus pack. The damage was completely my fault (sliding down granite). I wrote Ron and asked if he ...

The Exodus is the new 2009 version of the MLD Zip pack. So far, I have taken it on 2 overnight trips and one 9 day trip. This is my first frameless pack, so I can't compare to others, but the pa...

These are my new go-to electrolyte replacement solution. I used them in conjunction with Saltstick pills on a 9 day TRT thru-hike. Prior to that hike I had always had evening headaches and sometimes...

I like this quilt but give it a 4 because the temperature rating is optimistic. I've used it once below freezing, and while I was fine, I had to layer up substantially. I used it on a mid-Septem...
