Air Zippditty

rated 5 of 5 stars Convenient bags for staying organized! I love the different colors for color-coding. Bags made of Sil nylon with waterproof zippers will protect the contents for hiking or backpacking. Thanks to the other Trailspace review, I ordered a set of the 1L and 2.4L Zippditty. Wow! I can only think how much more organized I can be on my next hike or backpacking trip. The 2.4L size promises to be especially useful for stowing gloves, a hat, various small cords (used in rigging my tarp), etc. The 1L seems… Full review

Blaze AC 60

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight roomy pack for weekend to weeklong use. Comfortable. Simple design. I bought this in my quest to reduce overall pack weight. In the last year, it has proven tough, comfortable, and once I changed my packing procedure to fit this style, it has proven very trail-worthy. I have two packs, this one and a larger Deuter that I've used for about 7 years. I increasingly reach for the Blaze these days. Unlike most of the backpacks I have owned, this style has no separate bottom compartment, or… Full review

Air Zippsack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars My go-to packing system. Light, roomy, easy access. These have replaced all my standard stuff sacks. Zippered top, rectangular shape, both are a real help in accessing what's inside (you know the rule — whatever you need in a backpack or stuff sack is always on the bottom, right?). They are very lightweight and tough. I've been using them for about four years now, no tears or real wear. Zippers hold up well. Not  totally waterproof, but very water resistant. I line my clothing and food bags with… Full review

Air Zippditty

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Just the right size (.6L) for the little odds and ends you want to keep in one place when hiking, camping, backpacking, or any other outdoor activity. Well-made bags in high visibility colors, great for small first aid kits, fire starting kits, snacks, electronics, and more. A perfect way to bring some order to your backcountry existence. Multi-use Organization for the Outdoor Enthusiast As any outdoor enthusiast knows, organization can save time, prevent loss, and bring peace of mind to one's outdoor… Full review

Leopard V.C. 46

rated 5 of 5 stars This bag is lightweight, customizable, and really great at fitting in everything you need without a sacrifice in quality. I use this bag mostly for two-night backpacking trips with roughly a 25-30lb load in the Northeast where there's lots of water around. I've used this bag a handful of times after buying it when looking for a smaller and lighter bag (Deuter Act Lite 65+10).  It is a lot smaller than my other pack so it took some playing around to get everything to fit, but otherwise carried everything… Full review
