Does this tent need a footprint? If so are they available?
Finally upgraded from my old Kelty external pack (we've been together for 20 years)MAN what a difference!!!! Light, tough, custom fit, everything you could want. It even has the option of hanging your water bladder inside the pack (insulates in winter to keep from freexing), or outside between the pack and suspention webbing to keep cool in summer. I strongly recommend that you do not buy any pack, day, tech, or extended backpacking until you try on an Osprey. You won't be disapointed.
Finally, someone got it RIGHT!! This company is the one by which all other packs should be judged. Don't buy any pack, day, tech, or extended backpacking until you have tried on an Osprey. I will buy no other.
When I moved to Montana I decided to check out and see what was new in the backing world. Man!!!! Things have changed, for the better. I've used a MSR Whisperlite for 20 years with no problems but the JetBoil blows it away!! No priming, no heating up the "cup" or spilling fuel during hard weather. This stove is bomb proof. The standard by which to judge all other stoves.
