A few years ago, Ultimate Direction changed that by combining running vest comfort with backpacking capacity for their Fastpack 20 and 30. Ultimate Direction is best know for their running vests and hydration products that are used by some of the world’s elite ultra runners. This year, Ultimate Direction has released a revamped lineup of packs they’re calling the Trail Collection. This includes the Fastpack 15, 25, 35, and 45. For this review, I’ll be taking a look at the 35 and 45.
I’ve used the Exos 48 on countless backpacking trips and day hikes over the past few years, and have started to use the Exos 58 a little more now that I have to pack for my infant son as well. In this post you will find my review of these packs based on 3 years of intensive experience.
One of the first questions I asked when I found out I was going to be a father, was “How am I going to hike?”. After doing some research, Julia came across the Ergobaby carrier, which was well reviewed and one of the most popular baby carriers on the market. There are a few models of the Ergobaby carrier for sale, and today I’ll be focusing on the Original, with a review of the Performance in the future.
I’ve used the Double Rainbow in all sorts of conditions, including hot and cold weather, thunderstorms, wind storms, and a two week thru-hike of the John Muir Trail. It’s safe to say I’ve put this tent through the wringer, and I’ll now put my experience with the tent into this comprehensive review.
