usually, I find places within Australia, like Tasmania and the Blue Mountains to hike but I take kids to Borneo, Germany and New Zealand
would this hold a passport, wallet glasses?
I'm going for a 4 week hike (Camino, Spain) and am unsure what to take with me to a) have my valuables safe, b) to have money handy. I never mind too much where I put my 50 l pack, but I want something to be able to wear it with the pack, yet have it on me when I don't have the pack (toilet, cafe, shop). I've been thinking to get what used to be called "bum bag" worn at the front but it needs to be comfy and not interfere with the pack. I don't want to continually pack/unpack wallet and I don't want those worn underneath clothes, as I want to use it openly... Anyone any ideas? Thank you!
best shoe I ever wore, honestly. They are true to size and look fantastic. I wear them all day to work, and have been out on hikes a few times. Haven't worn them when carrying a pack, yet, but will soon. The bad thing is, now all my other shoes don't seem right. I also gave away all my heels. I will have another pair
I so want the pace glove but I can't try them on anywhere in Adelaide. I am afraid to get the wrong size as it is really expensive to have to send them back to the US from Australia! Can someone give me a good idea about size! I have a hiking boot from Mammuth, US size 7.5.
Over here I wear shoe size 8 to 8.5, in Europe, I'd buy shoe size 38.5 to 39. HELP!!
I'm off to Borneo in a few weeks on a jungle trekk, etc and want to know if I can use this net also with a hammock? Thanks!
I'm 162cm short/tall, have narrow shoulders and wider hips (100cm). Which size of this pack would I take and do you think it would be a good pack for a 28 day Borneo trip/trek? Sorry for the metric measurements but it's what I know...Thanks!
what is the difference between the Aura 65 women's and the Ariel 65 women's?
I got the Aura 50 and it's a great pack but decided I needed a bigger one for that bit more of clothes and food. Thanks for your answers!
does the rubber on the handle get hot?
I have been looking around for a while now for a watch I can take hiking (mainly need time, compass) as I often go alone. But there seem to be none for women! Only the soonto but it got bad reviews because of its weak band. I am looking for one which isn't going to 'take over' my wrist and sits there heavily...any suggestions?
If you can get these boots do so quick!!! Unfortunately, backcountry didn't have my size any more and I went to a local outdoor shop to get them and paid -even with a discount and on sale - almost $400! I only have taken them out a few times for 2 hour walks in steep and rocky terrain, they felt great from the beginning. What impressed me was the sole; in wet conditions they had a good grip on slippery gravel downhill. They look smashing and feel light. I wore them with light socks and with thick socks, not a sign of blister (ok, maybe haven't walked enough) In four weeks they'll be put to the test but I know already they'll be great and my joints will be laughing! By the way, I had to return a pair too big and backcountry quickly reimbursed me! Thanks folks, love your website and your great online service and your prices rock!
I'd like to hear some ladies' comments on this pack. I have seen the Osprey Ariel and liked it. This pack sounds better as you can fit it more to your own shape. I need one pretty soon (have to say good bye to mine after 23 years :() and can't make up my mind. Can someone help me out? Thanks!
When I go on 2 day trips, I usually carry a maximum of 14kg (approx 30lbs). I'm a good packer though and this includes clothes for rain, tent, cooking staff, shoes for camp, mat, sleeping bag, food (not dried) and a minimum of 5 liters of water (over here in Australia a must)
Hi there, I would also go with the 65, I tried one on at the shop and think you'd better go with the larger one...
