This thread made me breakout the wife and I's circuits and take a peek. I'd love to get my hands on the Catalyst A La Dan........ But the Mchale Super Sarc' is too close. First think I've seen that makes me drool however and +1 to the ULA hipbelt comments. Good stuff!

Re: Circuit vs ohm...I want more cuben gear!!!! on 03/26/2013 21:18:06 MDT Print View


I did an 8 day trip last September with the Ohm 2.0.... used a Scout Bearikade on its side... had a one man tent, Scout, 8 days of food... 26 lbs total nic water... took it off trail over talus, scree, etc... was my first trip with that pack and loved it...

though reading above I'd love to have it made with a light color Cuben... the black is so dark makes it hard to see things when you packing down in that dark hole :)

Circuit vs. ? on 04/11/2013 01:40:59 MDT Print View

I was so set on a Circuit until the new Exped Lightning backpacks hit the market and now I'm stuck. I was going to grab a 45 liter Exped Lighting from for $160, but missed the boat. I thought it was a reasonable price and they have a great return policy so trying it out would be painless. Well, I missed that and I'm just going to give up this season and carry my boat anchor, Cilogear 45L Worksack @ 3.5 lbs.
