Anybody want to fess up to being an absolute gear dawgie hiding packs inside packs from the family or being a single pack owner and proud of it?
I've known cyclists who claim you can't own too many bikes up to the point of it being a relationship deal breaker.
I'll count up mine when I get home and post.Aug 25, 2011 at 3:56 pm #1772859

I own seven and I want one more: SMD Swift…I have ULA-2, Golite-4, MLD-1Aug 25, 2011 at 3:58 pm #1772860
Do only (ultra)light hiking/backpacking packs count or any packs?Aug 25, 2011 at 4:00 pm #1772861
@thunderheadLocale: Great Smoky Mountains
Just two. Osprey Stratos 24 and a 1st generation Golite Jam2. I'd love an MLD Burn though!Aug 25, 2011 at 4:12 pm #1772864

I lost count after twelve or thirteen.
–B.G.–Aug 25, 2011 at 4:34 pm #1772874
but 3 of them are small ultra running packs, do they count?
also, 3 of the other 6 are home made.
all the commercial packs are modified to some extent.Aug 25, 2011 at 4:44 pm #1772878

Just three. An Osprey Atmos,ULA Ohm, and a Vaude Aracanda. How many more would I like to own? About 25.

Ten (10) from a tiny ULA Amp to a 66L Osprey expedition pack, and everything in between.
But, I could quit – if I wanted to!Aug 25, 2011 at 5:31 pm #1772902

2. ULA Circuit and a TNF Terra 40 which was my first pack. Keeping the Terra 40 as a spare to lend out. Considering a cuben fiber pack in the near future.Aug 25, 2011 at 5:50 pm #1772905

Gossamer Gear Gorilla – This is my primary 3-season pack
SMD Starlite – my winter pack/extended trips when I have to carry lots of water.
MLD Revelation Hybrid – My 9.88oz SUL aspirational pack, that I'm about to sell, as I can't justify keeping it around for aspirational purposes.
The North Face Skareb 55 (kept around as a loaner)
10 year old EMS 4500 7 pounder – my first real pack, been around a bit with me and purely sentimental value.
REI Jet UL- Makes a nice winter dayhiking pack.
Oware daypack stuff sack – self-explanatory.
REI Flash 18 – nice durable daypack for hiking and travelling.Aug 25, 2011 at 6:12 pm #1772912
Black Diamond RPM, BD Speed 40, GoHeavy Jam, and my pride and joy, my Cilogear 60L.Aug 25, 2011 at 6:13 pm #1772913
4 for 2 people. 1 each for dayhiking, mountain biking, trail running, etc. and another 1 each for backpacking.Aug 25, 2011 at 6:14 pm #1772914
1. Gossamer Gear Gorilla. Probably gonna change to having 2 packs like a zpacks blast/mld burn and a larger pack for the long excursions. If only money grew on treesAug 25, 2011 at 6:16 pm #1772915

5 but I can't get rid of the 2 that are retired. one pack is my wife's. I use just 2 these days.Aug 25, 2011 at 6:19 pm #1772917
@kennyhel77Locale: Scotts Valley CA via San Jose, CA
I have a retired ULA P-4 I think???? Perfect condition and I would sell it….
I have 3 ULA's and love them!Aug 25, 2011 at 6:37 pm #1772924

We all have lot of gear that hasn't seen the light of day for many years.
How many packs do you own THAT YOU STILL USE? Now THAT's a good question.
My answer: 2. One is a simple day pack, the second is my long haul pack.Aug 25, 2011 at 6:41 pm #1772927
@kat_pLocale: Pacific Coast
Two of us share 5 packs:
Osprey Hornet 42
Osprey Kestrel 48
Deuter Act Lite 35
We mostly use the Hornet and the Ohm.Aug 25, 2011 at 6:42 pm #1772929
@hknewmanLocale: Western US
Retired – Mountainsmith Auspex 75L and a torn Granite Gear Vapor Trail 60L, probably sell the former, do not know what to do with the latter
Current – Osprey Exos 34L, Granite Gear Virga, stripped REI Flash 50 (may do some more trimming), and for winter, Granite Gear Vapor Flash 60L.
Would like the Osprey Hornet 46 but their largest size (M/L) fits me like a Hello Kitty bookbag strap-wise.
REI Flash 18
Osprey Talon 5 for snacks, water, and toolsAug 25, 2011 at 7:00 pm #1772935

I love stuff you put stuff in. It's a wonder I have only five, and of those only one I got specifically for backpacking. Two lumbar (one small, one large), a small Camelbak, a medium Jansport, and a large GoLite.
Now if we start counting the messenger bags, duffel bags, gym bags…I start to look a bit obsessed. We won't go there.Aug 25, 2011 at 7:03 pm #1772936

Just me, or the whole family?
Gregory Shasta, ~1995, retired
SMD Starlite, 2004, retired
ULA Circuit, current
ULA Ohm, current
Golite 24 Pack, current
Osprey Kestrel 32, current
If I had to list all the packs I've ever owned, that might be a problem. Not even sure I can remember. Yikes.Aug 25, 2011 at 8:01 pm #1772947
And here I only thought I was a tentaholic…darn this thread for making me take notice!
Dana Designs Terraplane (still keep it for training dayhikes, lending)
Granite Gear Nimbus Ozone
MYOG silnylon daypack
Luxurylite external frame
MLD Exodus in VX21 (PIF from Thom Darrah)
I've used all but the Exodus, which I got after being sidelined with plantar fasciitis earlier this year…still looking forward to taking that one out.Aug 25, 2011 at 8:34 pm #1772959
I'm not even going open this can of worms.
