re.Memory Card Question
I carry 2 cards myself. A few grams of redundancy doesn't hurt in the memory card dept., if just for a little peace of mind. I have lost a card in the field. I have had a card go bad.

Oy veh! What's next? "Big Brother Backpacks"? People could vote each other out of prime campsites.

Lightning Access Review
Hmmm, a large (nearly 70L) pack rated to only comfortably carry 20lbs. As Queen Victoria used to say, "We are not amused". A nice premise that might be better in a smaller, lighter p...

Arai Raiz specs.
Last I heard, a kilo (the weight M. heard quoted) was equivalent to 2.2 lbs. That's a big dif---3lb. 7oz. to 2.2 lbs. And boring old gore-tex, not propreitary at all. Is what Miguel saw a di...

Platypus Platy Reservoir
The dedicated hydration systems by Platypus are more reliable than the "retrofit" of the resevoir into one. The Big Zip is far better to the purpose.
