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.

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...

I dunno what the other reviewer is thinking. The Brio is an entry level pack that is not intended to be light weight at all. It weighs 2.1kg (4.5lbs) for the 50 liter (3000c"). A similar pack but...

I've spent about 10 nights in this tent. What I like: - Carbon Fibre Poles are ridiculously light - 10,000mm waterproof floor is impressive for an UL tent - Overall trail weight under 3 l...

This light is unreal if you need a huge amount of light for hiking at night. I use this light with NiMH 2700mAh batteries and the life is good. If I run it on 3 watt high I get a couple hours. If y...
