Re: wife nixed me

Re: ULA Circuit cabin/carry-on luggage?
The max dimensions for most jet airliners are 22 x 14 x 9 (or 45 when added up). No one will bat an eye if you are an inch over here or there. And even if you are a few inches over on one dimensi...

Re: Using ULA Circiit without frame/stay?
Not the ULA Circuit specifically, but there are plenty of frameless packs that carry very comfortably -- if packed to no more than 23-25 lbs. total pack weight. When using a frameless pack (and I ...

Weight Specs
Seems most 'mainstream' gear makers either list optimistic weights or skip altogether. It's often the boutique makers who list with accuracy/honesty.

Re: Destinkify Back to New?
I've never had a problem with “accelerated stink“ likely because I just haven't worn my shirts long enough for bacteria to really work their way in. However, I've had plenty of exp...

Re: Certainty
