About

Prepping for a 2015 Appalachian thru-hike. I am an amateur photographer, hiker and backpacker. I'm not an ultralight backpacker but do look for lighter weight options. I normally lean more toward durability and dependable performance over ultralight.

I normally like to give my gear a thorough trial before posting any reviews. I have found it to be very frustrating when shopping for newly released gear that there are no reviews at all. In those cases I will post an "initial impressions" review that I will later update after more use.
