      Makes sense until it’s taken to an extreme, ie leaving your toothbrush at home and just rubbing your teeth with a spare sock. Carrying less weight is more comfortable while hiking.

      Hammock are comfy and solve a lot of issues (while introducing a few unique one). They’re perfect for a lot of environments.

      Those shirts are purposefully ugly and overpriced. They are quite literally “expressive of exaggerated stature” as a hiker; the textbook definition of pretentious.

        Don't get me wrong.
        I love hammocks.
        They're very cozy and practical and light weight.
        But there is definitely a pretentious community/cult around them.
        300 dollars for an underquilt?
        I just made a diy one, slap a mylar tarp/blanket on it for winter, and call it a day.
        I'm going to invest in lighter fluid hand warmers for hammock camping soon.

          Being expensive doesn’t make something pretentious, and all quality down sleeping bags and quilts (whether they’re purposefully built as under quilts or not) are around the same price point. Comparing that to a $97 button down shirt is a pretty big stretch.

          >a Mylar blanket hanging under a hammock is good enough for winter
          Sure it is, Anon.

            I hang it under my diy underquilt. I was camping in 20 degrees a couple weeks ago. It was cozy.

      Ultralight is a marketing term to sell morons a pack for 2x the price that is only 10% lighter or stupid shirts that fall apart after two seasons.

        Please post examples of packs marketed as “ultralight” that are only 10% lighter but 2x the price of a more typical, comparable pack.

          Show me what pack you currently use and I'll explain why you're moronic.

          I'm not going to waste my time satisfying a general question from an idiot who's going to bombard me with pilpul.

          I want to make it specific to you.

            Lowe alpine sting

              Love my Lowe Alpine peak attack, I'm after one bigger but I have to wait till I find one second hand because the new RAB owned ones don't look as good. The Sting looks great but too big for me, Lowe are the Toyotas of backpacks.

                Sting is good though. It has a 60l base, and 2 10l bags that can attach to molle and detach to form a smaller day pack.
                It's modularity is somthing I value.
                I attached a molle first aid kit to the outside.
                Probably will have munition satchels striped if I go hunting with it.

              Low alpine sting is a 7lb rucksack you fish faced rat brain. Did you bother even looking it up? Dude is trolling or there is another version I don't give a shit about digging around for enough to say it isn't the rucksack.

              I also don't know how much your gay Osprey Exos cost 10 years ago so, yeah, you morons playing "gotcha" are just that: morons.

              Try again--but with less obvious moronation this time.

                What's wrong with a Dutch sting?
                It cost a hundred bucks and has everything I want out of pack.
                80L, molle, compartments for axes, saws and firearms, a pouch for a water bladder, a detachable day pack for hiking.
                Why do you hate fun?

                I never said anything about a Low Alpine Sting.

                And the Exos has always been around the same price as other major brands. I think it was just under $200.

                also, exos 58l is 2lbs 8oz.. again I have no idea how much you bought it for but ... yeah, that's not all that light dude.

                >2.5lbs isn’t light
                I never claimed it was light… but it is compared to the other Anons 7lb pack.

                You’ve lost the plot Anon. You made an outrageous claim and can’t back it up. Just post an example.

                I posted my pack and it doesn’t fit your description but might be marketed as ultralight. Compared to the same manufacturers Packa is about 30% lighter and 2/3 the price.

                Should I ask again for examples of these packs you were talking about that are only 10% lighter and 2x the price, or will you just keep saying I’m wrong without bringing anything to the conversation or using your words like an adult?
