It's okay Kat - he is wrong on the family type anyway.
Dan, it really doesn't matter if someone says your packs are great for something specific (which I did) because you will always find an issue with that. Your packs are to be the best for everything. Of course, we know that is not possible because people are individuals and want different things from their gear, not to mention at specific price points. In addition, innovation is remarkably individualistic. You say you created the daisy chain (I refuse to bring that thread up so do a search) and now the bottom volume reducers that Golite and MLD have used successfully. Fine. I thought you had adopted it from them supported by your comment to me that they were 'new.' And what is so wrong about that? Adoption. Adopting ideas makes innovation that much more effective.
But your approach has been, and will continue to be, ATTACK, ATTACK, EDIT, ATTACK, EDIT. It gets tiring.
