I'll be doing a section hike starting in Campo and ending near redding starting at the beginning of May this year.
I'm in the process of purchasing a new pack and having some trouble deciding when it comes to volume. I'm currently
Elemental Horizons Aquilo
I see a lot of folks carrying the circuit and the mariposa. I definitely really like what I see/read about the Aquilo and the
EH packs in general, but I'm concerned about the somewhat smaller volume as compared to the others.
My big volume items:
Big Agnes seedhouse SL2 tent
Western Mountaineering UL down bag
My last experience was on the AT with an Osprey Aether 60 and it all packed up pretty nicely, but this is my first really
long haul and I'd love some feedback on this decision.
