Ohm
Nice pack. The Ohm 1 also has the frame external, while it's been moved internal on the 2.0. I like the Ohm 1 better. This version with the hipbelt pockets is the best one.

JMT FKT
Wow the JMT has been elusive for a lot of great efforts this season. Tough country.

JMT Record Attempt
It's probably easier just to consider all multi-person efforts as "supported" since at a minimum each participant is supported by the camaraderie and safety net of their partner, plus...

Nice comments. You used some solid gear. I also love the DuoMid + Solo Inner and the LG Poles w GG grips.

Is Silpoly less slippery than Silnylon? If so, that would be a good reason to switch if Silpoly is similarly waterproof and durable. I suspect the slipperyness is similar though since it's the ...

Nice wallet, but if you're carrying anywhere near 24 cards you're doing something wrong. After the PCT I stopped using a wallet altogether and just toss 1-2 cards in my front pocket each mo...

Mids
Outside of winter, I usually use a solo inner net tent (9oz). It's not much heavier than a bivy and it's a lot more liveable. I could get away with a groundsheet outside of bug season, but ...

Fusion
The new side pockets look good. Amongst thru-hikers in 2014 the small side pockets were the main complaint.

Mountain Laurel Designs Revelation
I really like my 2009 MLD Revelation pack. The 1.5oz cuben is great. I think it will last a very long time provided I don't take any good falls on rocky slopes. With some bungie cordage, MLD s...

I initially bought the regular size NeoAir but I recently sold that and bought the small size instead to save 5oz. I've been really happy with the switch. The small NeoAir is just as comfortable, ...
