"Holy SH%T! Ricky Martin is American?"

Yeah, and wasn't he just that more sexy when he was perceived as an "exotic, non American"?! Thanks Ian, thanks A LOT.

I don't own any of their packs, but they look cool and are made in the USA. I handled one and it was really nice, comfy straps, well stitched. Doesn't scream ultralight outdorky, useful for both trail and town.

Easy folks. These all American men were setting standards in hiking fashion before some of you were born.


I believe that is a Patagonia headband.

If I don't received a restraining order from the next GGG within driving distance, I'm showing up wearing Menudoesque satin pants.

Edit: Is it considered thread drift if I'm talking about threads?

+100 on Chris...I love my Zimmerbuilt! I just wasn't sure the OP's (friend's) <$100 price-point could be met there.

Drop Chris a line, it definitely couldn't hurt...
