Re: JMT in 5 days 2 hours
Andrew, This is crazy to read as when I went to break the unsupported record in 2009 I was in the exact same spots at the exact same times. By the end of day 2 I had black bruises under the fron...

Re: I was thinking of injured Aaron
Sounds good but it's a 2100 ci pack. If it were 1500-1800 then it would meet my first 3 as it has a slip for a pad to make it a semi-ridged pack. It's even a little better than that as ...

Re: Re: Adventure Vest
For me to make my perfect fastpack that I would want, I would have to. Find a way to lengthen my old Salomon adventure racing pack (Raid Race 200) and strip the side bottles off my Salomon and p...

Re: Adventure Vest
Peter, That's an easy one, for me anyways. 1. Light yet rigid enough so it doesn't sag (like most packs do without any type of frame). 2. Enough and comfortable padding able to car...

Re: fastpack
I know Brett pretty well and chat with him regularly. He was actually 1 1/2 hours ahead of Hal and Mike from Muir Pass To Reds Meadow. He was probably even with them at Reds, but they stopped. ...

Keil, Your problem is that you haven't done anything else crazy enough yet. Go with someone on a crazy (considered dangerous) hike. Something like Whitney in a day. Go bungee jumping, d...

Re: Volume
You can do multi days in a 1500 ci pack. I've done the JMT with a 1200 ci pack but 1500-1800 works much better. That weight in a small pack felt like a brick. The question is, do you want ...

Fenix L2D-CE
Everything else is just a light. For its weight, its 2-40 times brighter and lasts 5-10 time longer. Now they just need to make a 3AAA headlamp with a 5/15/35 lumens setting. The only problem...

Golite 2006 Reed Pants
I got the 2006 version with out the leg zippers because it is what I wanted, (the lighter version). I'm sure the breathability that Golite claims for it is accurate, but something twice as good...
