Ok, well, folks, I guess it's sayonara for now until I can finish putting together an overnight kit. Best of luck to you all until then.

The Backpackgeartest organization is, as the name implies, concerned primarily with testing gear in the context of backpacking, whether it be overnighters or long multiday or multiweek excursions. All of us, I would suspect, also do regular day hikes as you do, but the gear testing we do (with a very few exceptions) demands multiple overnight excursions.

However, the bottom line is that you are solely a day-hiker. As I have outlined, we are a backpacking site and I fear that as matters stand we are not a good fit for your reviews. If in the future you do become enthused by backpacking, we would very much welcome your contributions to the BGT community!
