Re: Starlyte

Re: Light pack for a female & 1-man 3-season tent for Australia (NSW particularly)

More substantial hip belt
Todd (and Doug if listening) how do you think the half pack would have gone if instead of having shoulder straps, it had a more substantial waist belt instead? Like a twin buckle strap, some den...
