I plan on being there Thursday as well, might be a little late, but there nonetheless :) I'll have all Friday (probably most of Sunday too) to hang, Angel's Landing sounds like a must do

carrying meat
if there is a chance of humping meat out, then an external frame is just about mandatory imo. For a larger mule deer buck you're looking at 40-ish # of boned meat, add more weight if you'r...

I'd probably go 4.5 just because of the needed velcro, but I like these enough I wanted to round up. They are breathable, they are light and they do a great job of keeping stuff out of your sho...
