Re: Ohm vs. Circuit

Re: Side clips
The side clip pockets are made by ULA and came with the pack. They work pretty well. ULA has a picture of the pockets on their site. Let me know if you are interested.

Re: 2011 Backpacking Light Staff Picks
Interestingly enough 2011 has seen my favorite gear picks move away from pure BPL standard stuff we see here all the time. My wife and I had a son this year so my attention has moved from spreadsh...

I purchased this pack alittle over a year ago and simply put, this may be one of the best overall trekking packs for hikers with a well dialed kit. While it is alittle much for a weekend trip it is g...

First off I must say that for the vast majority of my trips I strongly prefer a tarp/bivy combo. But for those times when I need a full tent, the Europa has always worked pretty darn well for me. Wh...

Inov8 Flyroc 310
