This is disturbing. This web site is supposed to have good advice about what gear to buy for camping and backpacking. Then they list three butane stoves as using propane. It's just silly.

Bob,

Did you look at their list of backpacks? They list 288 packs and you can sort them by weight or volume. Don't know if the specs are accurate, but it is a pretty cool database.

I was thinking good thoughts until I saw the butane/propane error. Then I gave up.

Kind of odd- comparing the OHM and Mariposa, they list the Mariposa as a 46L, but the OHM as 57L. That's the main pack volume for the Mariposa, without including any pockets, but I don't know where the OHM volume came from- its 34L main pocket volume and 65L with all pockets. What's the standard here, are we using main pocket or all pockets?

It's a mess. Too bad somebody went through a lot of work to get where it is at. But it is not there yet.

There are some things that need to be fixed on that site, but it could be a great tool if it gets sorted out.
