My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me My stomping grounds are the SE US, and 90% of the time, somewhere on the AT in GA, TN, or NC. Other times I enjoy going to the Smokies, or other smaller wilderness areas such as the Savage Gulf area.
Most of my trips are between 2 - 5 days long, with rare 7 day long trips. My total pack weights are generally under 20 lbs, unless trying new gear, or carrying extra for the kids. In the dead of summer, I enjoy SUL hikes, and have given thought to XUL (almost there...)

Re: The Jetboil Sol is Dead
My guess is because of the issues with the Ti version. Likely more of a headache, and possible costly, to get it to work like they wanted... As I said though, I could be wrong, considering the issu...

Re: The problem is , no matter who owns Jetboil,its not a charity...
I could be wrong, but I don't think it's because of the lack of money that the Sol Ti is supposedly leaving the Jetboil lineup... Also, as I understand it, the entire SOL lineup is leavi...

Re: Z-Packs Arc Blast vs Mariposa Ultralight?
I have been using my Arc Blast for a little over a year now, and I love it. The most I have carried in it has been around 25 lbs, and it rode great. I wouldn't be too worried if I had to carry ...
