I found a Pinnacle for under $80 the other day, so I'm going to give one a shot.

Good service, they made a special trip to get them to the post office before it closed yesterday. And they give a Boy Scout discount.

I'd be interested in knowing how these hold up. My son wore completely thru the black tread layer on the trail claws, on his first trip to Guadelupe Peak. I had kind of expected them to last mo...

Stuff sacks
I'm trying to get to where I just use a pack liner and not stuff sacks. I have a few mesh bags to gather up certain things.

Being the gear junkie that I am, I had to try one. I'll let you guys know what I think when it gets here.

I've used steel 7" nails for tent stakes in the Davis Mountains (bent them all), so I bet the aluminum would work great. For pennies on the dollar.

Got mine here - Great price, work well. Wouldn't be too tough to stick a grommet in one.

Marmot Atom Mens Regular 40 Degree
Nice bag. 1/2 zipper is kind of a pain, and makes it hard to use as a quilt. Seems true to rating.

ULA Catalyst
Replaced my Exos 58 with this, much more comfortable, with more weight. Got a deal on a 2008 model, and added the dual stays. A lot bigger pack than I'll use most of the time. Gained some weight o...

ULA Circuit
Switched to this for more durability, and the ability to carry more water in the desert. Works like a champ, and you couldn't ask for better customer service.

Osprey Exos 58
I have to ding it a little for the hip belt. I think the hip belts on the large runs small, because it didn't wrap around me enough to be effective. And that may not be fair to ding it, because al...

Golite Ultra 20
Mine kept me warm in the upper 20s, so I'm happy. I'm not completely sure it would reach 20, and keep you warm for 8 hours. But it's a great product for a great price.
