Re: Re: Re: Re: suggestion

Re: suggestion
Joe: The Explorer Trek is certainly trailworthy -- but may be 'overbuilt'. Obviously, this is subjective, but I based this on my comparison of its smallish volume and heavy-ish weight (2,400 / ...

Sai: Frameless packs have their place (again, it's a matter of matching the right tool to the task at hand). More space is good if you have particularly bulky, but lightweight pieces. But if t...

Big Sky Ultra C Aluminum Tent Stakes
