Gear list

Sierra High Route Map

Gear or more specifically packs

I have been looking at all the packs I can trying to decide whether this is the year I upgrade to an ultralight pack. Some of the packs that i have looked at are made by the following:

Hyperlight Mountain Gear

Gossamer Gear


ULA Equipment

Granite Gear

Elemental Horizons


Mountain Laurel Designs

Sierra Designs

I did look at Osprey, Gregory, Mystery Ranch, and other name brands but their weights were significantly more than those listed above. I did weight comfort as a big factor but I also felt that some of the lightweight packs would still provide sufficient comfort.

I'm trying to make a decision within the week so if any of you would like to put in your two cents worth for or against a pack please sign my guest book. I'm open to all the information and opinions I can get. A new pack is a substantial investment and I want to make a wise selection. I thank all of you who choose to share.
