I like to run in the mountains a heck of a lot, but lately, I have been hiking a lot more. Perhaps that is why I am getting slower!

The Snow Peak Trek 700 Titanium Cooker is light, compact enough to fit in my pack without being too bulky, but large enough to cook what I need (which is mainly 2 cups of water, but I've cooked raman in it before). I also enjoy it because you can fit in a 110 gas can inside of it perfectly. I usually put 2 gas cans in there and use my own aluminum foil lid. The Trek 700 Titanium Cooker is all I need for long backpacking trips.

This pack has lots of great features. First, its very light, but feels even lighter has the support you get through the waist belt and the shoulder straps are very comfy and sturdy. Second, when full of gear, the pack remains close to your body. The waist belt also has pockets in them to hold whatever you need - trail food, headlamp, whatever.

If you are looking for a fast pack, the GoLite Speed Pack is a great choice. Though there are lighter packs out there, the 2.7oz pack makes up for it in ease and convenience.

The Clif Bar Mini Variety Pack is the way to go - as a small guy sometimes I don't want to eat an entire Clif Bar as much as I like them. I usually end up eating half of the bar and losing the other half under my car seat or in the bottom of my pack. I love the texture, they are packed with energy, and the flavors displayed in this variety pack are the best ones they offer in my opinion.

The Snow Peak Trek Titanium Plate is what it says - its a very lightweight plate. Sometimes when a long day of hiking comes to an end, and I don't feel like eating out of the bag, I just dump the food on there and go to town. Beats the hell out of paper plates, and it makes for a nice frisbee for an after dinner activity :)

The SteriPEN Adventurer Pen is perfect. Easy to use, lightweight, and easily a third of the size of the other water filters out there. Granted it's the most expensive water filter I've seen, you get what you pay for. Perfect for the lightweight backpacker.

The Julbo Instinct Sunglasses were a good choice for me because of the 4 lens set. The lenses are easy to put in and take out, and come with mirrored lenses, regular lenses, orange lenses, and clear lenses. They are very comfortable, and fit my face well. This is my 2nd pair of Julbos, and I know for a fact that Julbo has great customer service. I ran over my first pair with my car, and they happily replaced them for free. Go Julbo!

In my opinion, if I were doing the AT, I'd go with the GoLite Odyssey Expedition Pack. You could get away with this pack (heck, one of the GoLite folks did the Great Western loop in Jam 2 pack), but I think the extra nooks and crannies in the Odyssey pack would be worth it.Best of luck!
