Re: Hmm... CDC Guy goes missing after feeling sick...

SNIP It is starting to look more dire for the missing guy. Cunningham left behind his car, cell phone, wallet, and dog. Few people leave their phone behind these days. The rest is kind of a wash but the phone is a unique item that has changed us. Ya right? Leaving wallet and car behind IMO makes it...

Cheap, durable, lite, choose 2. :) Camping hunting commuting = likely very different size needs, 50 liter + week long pack is often too big for under seat carry on / work / school commute.

Re: Stimulant of choice

Re: Inexpensive ruck options

I recommend the used ILBE, its an arcteryx design (beefy version of the Bora?). It has plenty of space, is very durable, excellent modern suspension. And its very heavy. High denier fabric = heavier and more durable. Big enough for a week, really big for just a 72 hour BOB. This one is on sale right...

Re: Help: Bag/pack options?

carrying your gear weight on your hips makes carrying loads a lot easier than carrying it on the shoulders. ALICE wasn't really designed to carry the pack on the hips like most modern packs. Alice was designed as a pack + belt and suspenders (LBE) setup. So, if you're looking to carry a lot of weigh...
