Re: Anyone handle the REI stuff travel pack in person?
I have last year's model, which looks similar to the 2011 model. The mesh shoulder straps are almost identical to the straps on my Flash 18 (c. 2009) in design, material, and width. Not sure if...

BPL Bulwer-Lytton Contest
I thought the Contest & Sponsored Giveaway! would be ripe for lampooning in a Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest (BFLC) way, but I didn't want to pollute that noble thread, so here goes: &quo...

Daypack with Large Front Mesh Pocket?
