waiting for my paratipi and stove which will be ready next week, but i picked up my long hunter and express (military) backpacks today...i think it's time for a garage sale to get rid of two decades of accumulated outdoor equipment which kifaru has now rendered obsolete.

i'm sure y'all know this already, but i have to say it just the same...i can be a real pain in the arse of a customer but patrick treated me well just the same and the folks at kifaru have been great. the "express" pack (and the "e&e" that will ride piggyback on it) are the "one pack" i've been looking for my whole life: bombproof, modular, built to last a lifetime. this is some seriously good stuff!

i nearly wet myself when i discovered the paratipi and stove...that just opened up another 8 months of backpacking and backcountry hunting for me...i can deal with cold, but i can't deal with bundling up in a sleeping bag for 14 hours with nothing to do because it's cold AND dark...now i can hang out in warmth and DO something in my tent, other than pack myself like a sardine into a sleeping bag.

i haven't gotten my tipi yet so i can't comment on it, but man i love the construction on my backpacks...i've spent thousands on this stuff and still couldn't find "just the right thing." now i think i have...

i plan to get out higher into the rockies next month to test all this stuff out...i suspect i'll be quite happy with it...

You will love the paratipi when it arrives. Five pounds of heated, bombproof comfort.....
