My Locale Scotts Valley CA via San Jose, CA
About Me A return to backpacking after a musicians life. Hiked with too much weight before finding out the "lite" side. I live in Scotts Valley which is right in the middle of the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains, and only 10 minutes from the beach and 15 minutes from Los Gatos. Love the Sierra's!!! Too many places to see and go!

Re: California Road Trip – Which Highway?
108 has some great gets slow going at the pass BTW, 4 is not too bad. Actually if you want a fun dayhike, once you get to the pass you can hike to Kinney Lakes which is about 1.5 miles....

Been using ULA packs for years. Bought the P2, P1 and now the Conduit. All are excellent in their own way. Customer service is perfect and so is the gear. Great packs!!!

Came home to find a rather colorful small box on my porch today. Wow it is small. I have always thought that it would be cool to have a small bear cannister for 1-2 nights of backpacking. Well here it...

I have only taken this on one trip so far. Everything that I have read about this is true. The space (square feet) and the coverage is awesome. I did not feel claustrophobic at all. The harness is a g...

I have owned a P-1 for six months now (and a P-2 for 3 years) and have come to really enjoy the qualities that make this pack a great weeklong hauler. The 1/4 length stays work well in making your pac...
