Re: Relay
"I prefer the draw cord closure of the older Circuit and the hip belt on the older Conduit" Agreed, the newer Conduit hipbelt is good, but the older version was def better.

Re: Should I walk the PCT this year?
Go for it! I graduated college 5 years ago and had a career in 2 weeks. While it could be seen as a success story, I regret not having the time to do something like this. I am now married with a...

Re: Gear Brands and Their Pimps
I guess I am for Patagonia. I rarely find any fault with the stuff I buy from them. That said it could be due to the fact that their stuff always fits my 6'4" frame, it is functional on ...

Princeton Tec EOS
I have been using the EOS-R for alittle under a year now and have been super happy with it. For some odd reason I find night-time winter trail running "fun" and this is the only headlamp I ...

I purchased this pack alittle over a year ago and simply put, this may be one of the best overall trekking packs for hikers with a well dialed kit. While it is alittle much for a weekend trip it is g...

Vargo Triad
As others have stated, this thing is terrible. It has a great look to it that seems to promise functionality but once you go to use it you will find the opposite. Get a Caldera Cone instead!!!!

Inov8 Flyroc 310
As a trail shoe I do not think it gets much better than the Flyroc's. With their forefoot space, amazing trail feel and fast drying mesh they are pretty close to perfect for New England hiking. ...
