My Locale John S. hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me Originally from Louisiana, I enjoyed camping in my Boy Scouting days and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Many years later (2002), I discovered backpacking after going on an REI multisport trip to Alaska. My first backpack was to Grand Canyon, and I was hooked!

Re: Breeze ?
I knew it should sell fast. The pack names are either Golite Breeze (~3000+ cubes) or Golite Day (~2000 cubes).

Re: updated

Re: Sleeping pad for Nepalese trip: bad lower-back pain
Consider LuxuryLite cot and closed cell foam. I figure the porteres will carry whatever you want them to, if it is packed appropriately.
