Hey everyone, This thread goes downhill real fast from here. As you can see the OP has deleted all his posts. I'm doing the same because I don't want to be involved in this mess either.
So skip reading the rest. Go outside instead.Apr 23, 2013 at 5:33 pm #1979880Apr 23, 2013 at 6:46 pm #1979898

Apparently all you have to do for money is start a kickstarter project and people throw money at you.
I say recoup your monies and go full dyneema!Apr 23, 2013 at 6:49 pm #1979899Apr 23, 2013 at 8:03 pm #1979920
"No kickstarter or full dyneema for me as some Bpl folk know where I llive if I run away with the swag."
Hmmmm. I wonder if your name is really "Stephen." Come to think about it, I'm not sure that was a real Scottish accent.

I was looking at a used McHale in a shop yesterday. Do you mount them with sheet rock screws? :) You could drive over that thing with a truck and pop the tires!Apr 23, 2013 at 9:14 pm #1979935

"It will mainly be for 3 season and winter use."
Sounds like a 4-season!Apr 24, 2013 at 7:57 am #1980027Apr 24, 2013 at 11:10 am #1980089

Just pack all the gear you normally take in the demo pack to make sure. I opted for the optional xl expedition utilty pocket (instead of the kangaroo pouch) for added volume when needed. It can be left at home when not needed.Apr 24, 2013 at 1:01 pm #1980132Apr 24, 2013 at 1:32 pm #1980142
I have an LBP 36 test pack with kangaroo and large summit flap. I took it out on a group snowshoe/ski trip last weekend. We had to boot pack our way in to good snow as it's disappearing fast in the Sierra and with skis strapped to the sides it carried like a dream. That said, I used all the space in the pack and would have had trouble if not for splitting group gear over so many people.Apr 24, 2013 at 1:57 pm #1980154Apr 24, 2013 at 3:20 pm #1980180
How much was your pack?
That site is a little confusing(for me). The pack I was able to find a price on(quickly) had a BASE price of 995.00. Did I find the most expensive one?
To those of you that currently have one- Was this pack worth 1000 dollars?
What is your main use? typical volume needed? and Typical load weight for given use?
I just can't see needing a REALLY expensive pask to carry such a small/light load. Well "cant see" yet anyway.
I like high end gear and could see my self with one of these in the future if there is a justifiable use. And I would not use it in winter as I mainly use a pulk to haul my gear and a day pack for daily stuff. Maybe for "me" there isnt one.
Im not sure of your load but – Would you guys spend the money on the pack if you only had light loads?
