My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: Re: Lunar Duo
Another vote for the Lunar Duo. It is a very spacious tent inside, and not too heavy considering what it is. I do agree that the poles can be left behind, but I am not ready to give up the ground s...

Re: Support for my frameless pack. GG nightlight? Hoop stay? Inflatable? Z-rest?
I had this same issue. I use a NeoAir rather than a ccf pad. However, now that I have the pack, I realize that it is way to big for my gear, and especially with the stay. So, I have decided to do a...

Re: clips
As of yet, I have not had an discomfort from wearing the pack. I actually don't even feel the buckles. Saying this, I have only walked around the house with it the last couple of days with abou...

Re: Six Moon Designs Swift 2011 - belts
Erik, the clips are plastic, or some form of it anyway. They are the same clips that are used in the ULA Circuit to strap in the zippered pocket or the water bladder pouch. I think they will be fin...

Re: Re: ULA Ohm 2009/2010
+ 1 on the great customer service! When I got my Circuit I was between sized on the belt, so they sent both sizes and let me see which fit me better. Then I simply shipped the one I didn't need...
