The daily perspective: As an industry vet experiencing OR for the first time, the show is a fantastic all-systems overload.

Some of the things I've found aren't the lightest-weight options on the market... but are relevant to those who are more lightweight than UL, or have a great price point, or are just plain cool. Today's points of interest?
