Re: Correction on Mountainsmith's Mountainlight Line of Packs
I spoke with the customer rep just last week and he was absolutely affirmative that the line is continuining. Still, I find this "on again / off again" thing rather confusing. In any case, Joe,...

Hi Rick: I own a MS Ghost as well, and I really enjoyed reading your review of this pack. When BPL came out with its earlier review of framed packs and left out my beloved MS Ghost, I felt that...

Re: Re: Re: Re: New Water Treatment Product
Ryan: I just read the description on Klearwater. Very exciting -- as it eliminates one extra step and some waiting time as compared to Aqua Mira. Curious about this Swedish product. How lon...
