Just wondering. Does anyone know what Brian is doing now? Curious to know if he is working for a company designing packs or maybe has plans to re-enter the pack market with his own designs.

The last I heard he has mostly sworn off gear development and is just doing odd jobs.

On this website he says he lives in a van and is self-UNemployed. He is probably having the time of his life!

Our loss. He is right up there with the guy at Mountainsmith, can't remember his name offhand, who designed the Ghost and Auspex then dropped out of sight. It would be an awesome thing if those two ever collaborated on a line of packs.

I kept in touch with him for awhile. He did some overseas travelling.

Regarding the guy at Mountainsmith - I believe he is designing for Kifaru Packs.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll have to check out their line. He was a genius.
