New Zimmerbuilt Pack On The Way...

Copper Spur above treeline
I've used the 3 above treeline quite a lot, firstly on the JMT where it seems the wind never blows (?) - it was great for the Sierras as being (more or less) a self-supporter it went up easily ...

Compact camera bag for 5N with kit lens
You might also take a look at the Ortlieb Snap. I use the smaller version for my camera, but the larger one's might suit you. My choice as it can deal with the (often persistent) rain in Nor...
