- Thats sort of what I was thinking. Daypacks, hydration systems, trail shoes... things of that nature.
I privately messaged a few people individually on the Backpacker Gear Forums... hopefully I'll get some good responses.

- Rather than broadcast a general invite, I have started inviting selected posters to the backpacking forums I frequent based on the stuff they write.
