How many packs do you own? on 08/25/2011 16:46:51 MDT Print View

Anybody want to fess up to being an absolute gear dawgie hiding packs inside packs from the family or being a single pack owner and proud of it?
I've known cyclists who claim you can't own too many bikes up to the point of it being a relationship deal breaker.
I'll count up mine when I get home and post.

Do only (ultra)light hiking/backpacking packs count or any packs?

Just two. Osprey Stratos 24 and a 1st generation Golite Jam2. I'd love an MLD Burn though!

9 packs
but 3 of them are small ultra running packs, do they count?
also, 3 of the other 6 are home made.
all the commercial packs are modified to some extent.

Ten (10) from a tiny ULA Amp to a 66L Osprey expedition pack, and everything in between.

But, I could quit - if I wanted to!

2. ULA Circuit and a TNF Terra 40 which was my first pack. Keeping the Terra 40 as a spare to lend out. Considering a cuben fiber pack in the near future.

Gossamer Gear Gorilla - This is my primary 3-season pack

SMD Starlite - my winter pack/extended trips when I have to carry lots of water.

MLD Revelation Hybrid - My 9.88oz SUL aspirational pack, that I'm about to sell, as I can't justify keeping it around for aspirational purposes.

The North Face Skareb 55 (kept around as a loaner)

10 year old EMS 4500 7 pounder - my first real pack, been around a bit with me and purely sentimental value.

REI Jet UL- Makes a nice winter dayhiking pack.

Oware daypack stuff sack - self-explanatory.

REI Flash 18 - nice durable daypack for hiking and travelling.

1. Gossamer Gear Gorilla. Probably gonna change to having 2 packs like a zpacks blast/mld burn and a larger pack for the long excursions. If only money grew on trees

Irrelevant.

We all have lot of gear that hasn't seen the light of day for many years.


How many packs do you own THAT YOU STILL USE? Now THAT's a good question.

My answer: 2. One is a simple day pack, the second is my long haul pack.

Two of us share 5 packs:

Osprey Hornet 42
Osprey Kestrel 48
Ula Amp
Ula Ohm
Deuter Act Lite 35

We mostly use the Hornet and the Ohm.
