    Hmm I’m just wondering why somebody thought my reply was inappropriate??
    Just some feedback on the older style aluminium pole that came with my own Megamid. The last section can and has snapped twice on mine at the junction.
    Both times when the tent got hit by a strong downdraft or microburst.
    I’d hope that the CF pole supplied with the silnylon version would be stronger but at the stated size I have doubts

    Thanks @mtwarden, helpful info. Looks like I missed chance to snag one on sale but will keep eye out.

    On a separate note, weren’t you looking for a winter day pack? Probably found one, but if not, I meant to suggest you take a look at the Osprey Mutant 38. Light, versatile. Much less featured, and thus less weight than most Osprey stuff.

    the few places that I saw them on sale are out of stock :(

    on the pack front- I ordered a Osprey Kestrel 38, it’s still has the tags on it- I’m waiting for a hunting pack to come in and compare- it’s a Stone Glacier bag that can be run on my hunting frame, but they redesigned this pack to be able to be run on it’s own too- removable shoulder straps and waist belt.  It has it’s own frame (not intended for heavy loads) so want to compare it to the Kestrel; if it can work as both a hunting pack and snowshoe/ski pack would simplify my life a little :)
