  1. Great gear choices. Only thing I would change is a lighter pack, especially with such a light base weight. I’m a trail runner hiker too. Currently using Inov8 Roclite 305.

    Good luck and have fun!

    1. totally get it! As one of my hiking pals calls Olive Oyl (the Granite Gear) she’s an “anti-faffing” pack because of the pockets, especially on the hip belt. Also leaves me room for the long carry stretches between resupply. I am still on the fence about using the lid – which cuts some ounces – def going in the bounce box to start. Thanks for the comments and happy trails! ~alison
