Re: Noob needs help picking between the ULA Ohm 2.0 or Circuit.
Honestly, I think if you're not sure which one to get, get the Circuit. The weight difference is not substantial, and the Circuit is a lot easier to (ab)use especially for a noob. I've owne...

Re: Favorite Sony Lens
I picked up an A6000 for the first time last night, as a colleague had brought one to dinner. He had the 19mm Sigma on it and said very nice things about that lens. Playing with the combo for a few...

Re: Looking for a pack for the wife.
My wife uses a ULA Circuit, size small, with the S-curve shoulder harness. It fits well and carries comfortably, with an empty weight of about 2 pounds. It has a big mesh front pocket.

Re: Retroactive Overfill from WM
They did my Megalite last year, at that point it must have been eight or nine years old. Came back looking like a new bag -- all puffy :) -- and I couldn't see anywhere they had opened and stit...

Re: Which small camera with viewfinder?
I have an RX100 Mark II, and the Mark III adds the viewfinder and a wider and faster lens. Probably the best current choice for a serious but small backpacking camera. The Panasonic LX100 also ...

Thanks, Link, you're right - it's the Arc Haul. Had a brain lapse.

Re: Larger Volume Pack Recommendations/Advice
OK, based on another thread here, I've been looking at the new Zpacks Arc Blast. 60 liters, 24 ounces, supposedly will carry 40 pounds in some comfort. Might be worth a look.

Thanks for the Stick recommendation. My Achilles tendons are the tightest my PT has ever seen, and therapy doesn't seem to help much -- so when I do any sort of long walking even just at work I...

Photon Freedom Micro (White)
The newest version is the Photon Freedom To The Max, which uses some sort of new technology in the LED that doubles brightness while not using any more battery power. Nice. The Doug Ritter edition ...

Marmot Ion
I just received my Marmot Ion jacket from Campmor, and I agree with the two most recent posts. I don't think it's sil-nylon, exactly, but my hiking test had water beading up on the inside whil...
