GG Crown 60
Wait for the new GG Crown 60 pack, spring 2012.

I like an over-sized bivy, like a Katabatic Gear Bristlecone,6'6"wide, gives me enough room to use a Neo-Air pad inside the bivy and wrap the straps of my Nunatak Arc Specialist around the...

Solo Tarp or Tarptent ?
I prefer a slightly over-sized tarp, such as my MLD Grace Duo. It affords me the space to sit under during rainy conditions, and cook (non high density bear country)under and be far enough away fro...

I like it!
Nice pack, I like that GG has also placed daisy chain style webbing on their hip-belts. Makes attaching their hip-belt pockets even easier. Some of the MOLLE pouches may fit as well?

Freestanding no
Very nice design, but I still like the freestanding option with my Rainbow.

If I were ever to go back to the Uber Ultra-lightweight side, I'd probably opt for a GG Murmur. Being waterproof is not a big deal for me, I use an internal plastic bag to keep my gear dry anyway.

I had a regular Sawatch, but thought it needed to be a few inches wider. Soon a wide version of the Sawatch will be available too. I've been giving some thought as to going with a Alsek wide, w...

pockets for me please
Personally, I could not see having a pack without at least side pockets. I carry (2) 1 qt Gator-Aid bottles in my side pockets and access these while on the go. I can stop at available water source...

radius the foam pads
Like another poster mentioned, all you need to to is cut the foam padding in the same way as your picture shows. This really made a noticeable difference for me with my Gorilla and Mariposa Plus. T...

McHale Chasm
I bought my McHale Chasm pack to be my one and only do-all pack, and I've not been disappointed in the least. First off, the workmanship is second to none. Next and most importantly is the fit. ...

As with all of ULA's gear, their workmanship is excellent. Load transfer is good, and I could remove .9L plattys, from the side pockets, without needing to remove the pack. I would have scored th...

Mountain Laurel Designs Zip
I just recently received my Zip pack, delivered as promised, within 8 weeks. First off the workmanship is probably the best I've seen, easily on par with ULA. The Green Sil-nylon is thicker th...
