No love for the REI Halo bags?
Just received the women's 10 degree long (men's 1 degree). I am 5'8" 155 pounds and fit good in it, I think if you were six foot tall it would be tight, there will be room on the ...

No love for the REI Halo bags
Eric, I just ordered a women's long, shoulder girth was same, hips were larger, fits to 72" tall, more fill then men's version. Will let you know how it fits, could be a good find.

ULA Ohm 2.0 Pictures
I wonder if it will be possible to convert the Ohm 1 to this hip belt? The Hoop would be the issue. The way the hip belt rides is the only thing I don't like about the pack, I think the pac...

Thermarest Ridgerest
I switched from a Prolite Plus (1.5" thick) to a 3/4 Ridgerest when lightening things up, I like that it makes a good pack frame and really like being able to sit on it anywhere. But I do not...
