My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking into the mountains for a few days with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. Also a snapper of many photos. Check out my instagram for short visual trip reports and such.

Not to make things more complicated, but I'd add katabatic to that list. I've owned packs from mld, hmg, gossamer gear, and tried out packs from smd & ula. I've been using a katabat...

lowepro dashpoint
I use two of the lowepro dashpoint series and they are excellent. Lightweight, cushioned, weather resistant, easy to latch to shoulder straps or hipbelts, and easy access.

great deal
I can attest that the down borah gear uses is high quality. And I've been happy with my 3.6 vest and 6.5 oz full zip down pants. Utterly simple, they both add significant warmth at negligible w...

Alex, if you can free up the funds, I'd just order one to try on. I've got an artemis, which has the same suspension, and its excellent. I've owned a golite jam, mld burn, GG gorilla, a...
