It also comes with a removable, drawstring style daypack. However, I have found that bag to be rather small, and instead, keep a collapsible daypack in the bottom of my pack instead. I could go on for a while on more details, but you get the idea that it’s well thought out. I have had… Continue reading The Path Less Traveled #010 Ozark Trail 30L Hiking Backpack Review

The first good design feature is the placement of the door on the side, and more specifically on the long side of the tent. I’ve tried tents with the door on one end and it is cumbersome. For the end-door variants, one has to toss their sleeping bag down the tent when getting ready for… Continue reading The Path Less Traveled #010 Ozark Trail 30L Hiking Backpack Review

Now he’s 12 and carries almost the same weight as I do and loves to help me plan trips with 10-mile days. The one downside with integrated rain flies is the lack of ventilation and temperature control. We had great weather – not too hot and not too cold – but it did rain for… Continue reading The Path Less Traveled #010 Ozark Trail 30L Hiking Backpack Review

Ultimately, the good design for this product was that it was sized right for what I needed, both in dimensions and weight. Not too small, but not too large (and thus wasteful) – a Goldilocks design.
