I was like a giggling girl today. An envelope arrived with my new MLD Burn. So I pulled my trusty old Jam out and loaded my gear into this little bitty pack. Then the moment of truth.... Would my new little bearboxer canister comfortably fit into the pack? I had loaded an 1/8" GG pad in the front, quilt and bivy in the bottom and then believe it or not slid the canister right in. I had to put my tarp and windshirt in the front corners to keep the back straight but it and all my gear fit in without much drama. I put the pack on, loaded up two water bottles and it fit like a glove.
So, for any of you light-weight, low volume, bear canister carrying hikers - Yes, you can fit a canister in a Burn.
Will have to give it a nice trial run up on the AT this weekend.
