My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking in the mountains with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. I recently picked up a bad habit called climbing.

tried it
I ordered one to try on, and as i feared it was a little too short (I'm 6'2"). Other than that, the vest straps and compression system make a great fastpacking design. I'd probably...

Wikipedia: SUL stands for singular user log-in. Shrug.
"seriously?" Fair enough :) I guess that speaks more to how obsessive I can be about packing, than to a real situation. It does come up when I'm going with someone less experience...

I'm surprised this has been so provocative for people. I don't think that it was Will or Ryan's intention to re-assert SUL as an important social category, but rather, as the article sa...

http://www.sunnysports.com/Prod/BKDUD.html?&& I have these and they're my favorite light pole. Not sure what the difference is between these and the '13 model.

Rab Meco works quite well. Not quite as warm or stink proof as full merino, but it dries fast, is super thin and so far has been pretty durable (besides pilling).

nice
Over the last couple years SUL has gotten increasingly poo-pood on this website from veteran hikers who would rather act manly and dirt bag. Fine, no problem. However, I don't think it ads much...
