shall we dance?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When I want to dance, I don't go to a party, I just pull my pack out of the closet. She (yes my pack is definitely female) fits like a dream and the pivoting hip joint and shoulder straps let her move with every motion, whether it's scrambling through Utah slot canyons or winter climbing in Colorado. BD nailed it with the Infinity.

Super simple pack; one big pocket, H20 sleeve, one-pocket brain. It might not have all the fancy bells and whistles that an equivalent Osprey or Gregory pack might have, but then, there's less to break. After three years of hard use, I've got two tiny holes in the brain fabric, the side and front pockets are stretched out, and there's scuff marks all over.

I've never had an issue fitting my gear in, even when leading weeklong trips where I've had to carry extra food, first-aid kit, paperwork, etc.

Just the best. Bottom line.
