Re: full size DSLR on trail
If I had to carry a full size camera on the trail, I would put it in one of these bags from Think Tank, attached to the suspension system of my pack in the front: http://www.thinktankphoto.com/c...

Re: 2 night trips in the southeastern US?
The Standing Indian loop on the AT is quite nice. It's about 25 miles, and makes a great 2-night hike. Park at the trailhead parking area at Standing Indian Campground, off US 64 about 12 miles...

Re: h51w is heavy!
Yeah, I was just looking at the h51w and thought the same thing. I have a Black Diamond Spot that takes 3 AAA batteries and I think it weighs a little less. Plus it has many more useful features (r...

Re: Double Rainbow rain and other questions
We had misting in several very heavy rain storms (the kind where you would be soaked to the skin in seconds if you stepped outside.) It's more like very high humidity, or the mist coming off a ...

Re: is a 12kg gear and fuel list still validate an internal framed backpack
I tested several frameless options, and found that for me, about 10kg total pack weight was the limit for comfort in a frameless pack. 8-9kg was much better. Other people can carry more, but I have...
