About Me Hey, I'm looking for tips to go lighter and ideas for more trips. I've only been backpacking for 4 years and just recently realized my pack could've been MUCH lighter. I usually do two 9 day trips, three 5 day trips and a few weekend trips a year so I'd like to make the most out of the little time I have. I need to branch out of the same 'ol romps I frequent.

u.l. pack comfort
I've tried every pack on at rei and they are not comfortable to me. I had a rei starlite for a few years and while it is heavy it is the most comfortable pack I've found. The ospreys have t...

Just an idea
I was just putting out an estimate so the other people don't waste their time looking since I was there I'd save them some... time.
