The legs, lungs, and knees I had when I carried food drops for groups on the JMT in the late 60's.

Ryan Faulkner:
I would like to see BMW re make their old Arc X bag and also come out with a cocoon version.

--------

I'm not sure why -- you can get the same bag done by Nunatak (and cheaper). Nunatak will make the Arc X variant (they call it something else, I think). The main differences between that and the standard are the height of the baffles (2.0" in the Arc X rather than 2.5") and the amount of fill (Nunatak usually adds more fill, but did the Arc X to Ryan's specs).

There's always the Fanatic Fringe quilt done in Delta, which should be close enough to whatever Cocoon is coming from BMW...

From Ben Lyon:
The rebirth of GoLite's Day pack.

------------------

But at the published 10 oz of weight rather than the 13 or 13.5 ounces that actually shipped.

I'd like a cure for this lightweight fever I've contracted.

Partner, when they start a twelve step program for this I'm sure my wife will do an "intervention" on me. Just be glad you don't have the lightweight bicycle disease too.
There's a pair of wheels I've been eyeing but I'm about five grand short...

Oh, and heres another thing for the wish list...

How about a GoLite Team backpack NOT in dayglow yellow????

It would be nice to go out for training sessions, using a pack identical in every way to my racing pack, and NOT look like a traffic cone in the woods.

Is it too much to ask for a "moss" team pack for training sessions......really?

To Larry from Laurence... on 12/25/2005 19:10:17 MST Print View

After I had my 2002 Santa Cruz Superlight down to about 23 lbs, an intervention known as a collection agency helped me quit cold turkey. I think that if I catch your disease, which sounds like road bike titanium-itis, I will be in serious trouble. Happy Holiday. Laurence

SHEESH! People wishing for lungs, legs, knees and abs that they used to have... Now, isn't that TOTALLY GREEDY of you people to be double dipping?

Since I have never had strong lungs, legs, knees, biceps or abs, I should be first in line! :)

Since I've started my own personal war with Rodale Press they've stopped considering me for a cover model for Men's Health magazine, that and the fact I now closely resemble a really huge apple....
