About Me I love the feeling of solitude and the chance to be at one with the world around me.

My passion for MYOG has become not just a hobby, but a way of life, and so started my own company - Simply Light Designs. Right now we focus on mostly backpacking tarps & hammocks along with various accessories.

Gonna try it
Had $20 in REI credit, so I couldn't pass this up. I too love the Flash 30 and hope the Stoke 29 is as good if not better. The one thing I like on my packs is an external pocket for water ...
