    The truth is, this shouldn’t even be a story. It should be the norm. But in the nanny nation we live in, apparently it’s exceptional, even though it isn’t.

    The Opinel pruning saw was mentioned by another poster earlier. It's what I've used for the last 6 years. Compact and light, while still being a "real" saw.

    Another fan here, but I'd disagree "there's not much to a backpack"... the best builds are deceptively simple, while being anything but simple. ULA gets most it right. While I currently have one only...
