Maybe VA
I might be coming through VA in late spring to see family so hopefully I can make Lexington. I'll have to bring my little brother with me. Loved the book by the way.

Load Lifters
I onced used a Golite Trek that was too small for me. Tightening the load lifters seems to effectively lengthen the torso length. Might help some people dial in the fit a bit better.

Re Materials
My mistake on the materials. If I recall the 4.4 oz ripstop used on the Golite packs is about 210 denier. So a bit lighter but if they thought it out well it might last just as long. Since Craig...
