My Locale Midwest
About Me I am in my late-40's and really got interested in backpacking about 10 years ago as a way to have some concentrated time with my boys, now all finishing up high school or in college. I try to get out a few times a year, including a bi-annual trip to Colorado for some of the big stuff. Otherwise I am stuck in the very boring midwest where everything exciting is a good day's drive away.

I had the same issue
I had the Montbell 3 & 5 and while I like the design of the bags, I am a big guy and when the threads are stretched, which is often for me due to being a big guy and due to regular tossing whil...
