Gear Review

More than a Sleeping Pad

Getting old sucks; not being able to backpack because of some lame foam pad sucks even more.

I read a review of the Exped from a fan who'd suffered from back injury and surgery - the Exped rocked his world, so I bought it.

Turns out to be much better than I had imagined. No more creaking bones and locked up muscles after a night on the ground and a good sound sleep.

The chair kit works like a champ too, though I'm not hauling it on long trips due to the weight, for short trips it brings new meaning to to the phrase "lounge lizard."
