My Locale South Australia
About Me Into Bushwalking in remote areas in Australia. Have completed alot of walks in Southern Australia, especially in the Flinders Ranges, but also some decent trips in Victoria, Tasmania, and Central Australia.

I also spend a lot of time in the field for work (arid areas) and am an avid Scouter!

Oh yeah, and I'm into cycling and photography too.

Osprey
My wife and I recently tried on an Osprey Pogo Plus child carrier. We have a 2013 model Macpac Possum (generally previously considered the duck's guts of child carriers) but we both struggle to...

Or miss the stove entirely. You don't go hiking with teenagers do you? Its not hard to make a mess. I'd like to see you use your bandana to get alcohol out of the A0 horizon. In any case...

Re: Starlyte

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...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: dropping wt

What's your lowest expected temp overnight? Your beanie is quite heavy at 3oz. If its not too cold (say >8C) I personally am ok with a normal buff, merino should be a smidge warmer, but Y...
