    Yeesh. I've used one when I was in, but was very glad to get away from it at first opportunity. Definitely one of the least comfortable packs I've been around.

    Living right off the AT here, I've had brief opportunities to meet Horton, Jurek, and Meltzer, and to hear JPD speak at an event. Each of them came across as simultaneously competitive and...
