Re: weekend trip report

Re: 245 vs 255
The 255s sound good. If the Altras don't shake out they'll be my next choice.

Osprey Talon 22
I use my Talon 22 for day hiking, scrambling and peak bagging, but foremost for technical multi-day mountain bike trips. I've squeezed a few three day hikes out of it in summer, too. For all the...

Granite Gear Vapor Trail
I have an early Vapor Trail, '03 model I believe. Back when it only cost 100 bucks and didn't have the strange hydration port on the bottom of the extension sleeve. Mine's been used pe...
