Re: Re: People are ruining backpacking.
Really it seems to be these long winded and semi pointless topics that are killing the forums. Everyone has different needs and requirements for their style of hiking and the environment they live...

Re: Thanks for the Support
Dan, this is a great article. Considering the awesome trip you just successfully completed who cares if people judge your gear. The reasoning behind your gear selection makes perfect sense!

Princeton Tec EOS

ULA Circuit
I purchased this pack alittle over a year ago and simply put, this may be one of the best overall trekking packs for hikers with a well dialed kit. While it is alittle much for a weekend trip it is g...

Vargo Triad
As others have stated, this thing is terrible. It has a great look to it that seems to promise functionality but once you go to use it you will find the opposite. Get a Caldera Cone instead!!!!

As a trail shoe I do not think it gets much better than the Flyroc's. With their forefoot space, amazing trail feel and fast drying mesh they are pretty close to perfect for New England hiking. ...
