"BA Fly Creek on AT- keep or swap now that I use trekking poles"
I also have a Fly Creek ul1 and a Zpacks hexamid. If I think it's going to rain, I bring my Fly Creek. I've used this tent for years and it really is bomber. I'm still new to the Hex an...

"External Frame Backpack"
You can get a sul pack and strap it onto the Luxury Lite frame. Works well. My combo weights 2.6 lbs. or so. But the Paradox looks great; Exped also has a well structured pack that's lighter. ...

"Sleeping Pad - What others should I consider?"
The thing is, the schnozzle doubles as an excellent waterproof pack liner. It's also super light. So with that in mind, it's worth it, imo.

"Closest to a Sunday Afternoons Adventure Hat without being a Sunday Afternoons Adventure Hat?"

Closest to a Sunday Afternoons Adventure Hat without being a Sunday Afternoons Adventure Hat?"
