You have a hydration pack that holds 4.5 gallons of water? Loaded up, you carry 60 lbs of water? It is nice to have plenty...Frame packs will bring this up to full capability. 18L and 9L hydration packs not shown.
ha ha, I was pretty sure I was misunderstanding something. Then I thought, well, maybe they like to take showers on the trail...Bill, that was misleading of me. "L" is the packs' capacity, not the bladder within. 18L hydration pack, LOL!
Same here. When I'm backpacking, I have to hang the pad off the bottom of my pack, and I definitely look homeless. Oh well, it's comfortable, it never leaks, and it's mine. I might try to get fancy and put some kind of drawstring bag over it, but I sort of doubt it.I dislike that homeless shopping cart look, but as long as it works...And nobody try to talk me into an inflatable pad
