My Locale NEOH
About Me I started backpacking in the Northeast in high school with 3 buddies where we had quick access to the AT (Hertlein campsite). Continued through college and dropped off during the family-building years. Got back into camping with my sons and Cub Scouts which just fueled the need for more backpacking. Getting out on weekend+ trips for the past few years and loving it all over again.

Thanks Rick, I will take a closer look at that one. I too would prefer a non-zipper close. The small Tamrac I had for my P&S Fuji had a velcro closure and I love that case, but alas it will n...

Looking for XZ-1 carry options/opinions
I have an Oly XZ-1 that I am having some difficulty settling on a carry position for. I like having in front at hand, but also a little protected. Currently, I have been using it inside a Case Lo...

Nice lineup
I see a lot of similarities between the 3 backpacking styles and gear choices. Besides the SUL'ers, I would think it should be easy to create a few 'standard configurations' of gear. ...
