RE: [John Muir Trail] Equinox Katahdin UL pack
- I don't have any experience with the Katahdin but have suggestion (not surprising). One significant issue for backpacking where bear canisters are required is how they work with your pack--not necessarily the weight but the bulk. A shorter, thorough shakedown/test trip is a good idea before you commit something longer.

Subject: [John Muir Trail] Equinox Katahdin UL packDoes anyone have experience with the Equinox Katahdin pack ?
I was considering it for long distance hiking out here on the JMT in the future. I am looking to go back to my roots of carrying just enough to to get through the sierras in one piece and keep my weight down to 40lbs total . I am tired of carrying over 50 lbs and pounding my joints to death .. I looked at the osprey but i didnt find it and I am really not interested in that pack... thanks in advance all !! sq
