Re: WTB REI Flash 18 (also have things to trade)
I'm NOT selling mine. But I will say that The Flash 18 is a great little pack for day-hikes. Just big enough for the essentials and some extra warmth. More than adequate for overnighters six m...

I see the most density between 4 and 5 pounds, and between $800 and $1000, which makes sense for buying 3-season gear new. Interesting to note that no one claims under 4 pounds at less than $400, ...
