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...

@Ken: Was that the A16 upstairs at Horton Plaza? I bought a tiny A16 backpack there that got me from San Diego to Houston hitchhiking in '98. Great little shop, I think they turned it into a...

Re: Sleeping pads
Can't say enough good things about my Exped SynMat UL7. It's 72" long by 20" wide, and weighs 16oz. The tubes at the edges are wider and help keep me from rolling off. I'm ...
