My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking in the mountains with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. I recently picked up a bad habit called climbing.

I'd look into changing your footwear. I wore innovates only once but the massive lugs made my feet pronate so bad that both ankles were in significant pain.YMMV as many folks around here do fin...

Canon EOS M (Mirrorless)
We'll know more about this monday, but it looks like a really good backpacking/adventure cam from what I can tell. Super compact with an aps-c sensor and a promising wide prime pancake lense. ...

jetboil
like others have said: solo, under 4-5 days, alcohol is lighter. I went for a jetboil for ease of use and simplicity. I also wanted 1 UL stove that would work for all 4 seasons. Its not the very li...

I'm very impressed with this pack. I tried out a few packs for a planned AT thru hike (didn't pan out yet), and this was far and a away my favorite. With the stay and sitpad, the pack conforms...
