    I primarily use a hammock, so in summer months I sometimes need just a touch of insulation but not as much as an underquilt, so I carry a torso pad. Also, because of the small size and weight Iíll...

    Osprey Exos fits the bill for me, at least the older version with the hip belt pockets.

    If you want to stealth camp along the AT, the best option, quite frankly, is a hammock. No need to worry about a flat spot or clearing the ground to keep your air pad from puncturing. You can pretty...

    Xero Z-Trail sandals. Can double both for creek crossings and for actual trail shoes if your feet just need that little bit of airing out. Or simply full time shoe if you like minimalist hiking.

    Thatís part of it. The other part that used food bags SHOULD go in your bear bag/canister. Wet food is arguably more aerobatic than dry food, and packing that much more wet dead weight plus the...
