Scuba, there has to be an idiot in every crowd, not to disparage those who like Osprey. The bird flies fine.
I love Osprey packs for what they are designed for. I have an Atmos AG i still occasionally use. But UL thru hikers are using sub 2 lb packs.

Teaching how to hammock camp is different; it requires doing. Without sounding like an elitist asshole, anyone who bra...
