Just returned from a trip to walk around Lake Monroe. The trip was about 22 miles of hills and good times. The Dixon Roller Pack was wonderful. I plan on adding hubcaps and deflectors on it to keep sticks out of the wheel, but it was never a real problem and I never got stopped more than a few seconds with something getting picked up by the packframe. About a third of the hike was bushwhacking, including CLIMBING BROWNING HILL FROM THE WEST!!! The DRP was great!
I had the RIBZ pack on the whole time too, and hardly knew it was there until I needed my camera or compass, etc. It will be with me from now on, great piece of gear. I never came close to filling up the pockets.
Enjoy the video, music by Bill Monroe, "My last days on Earth."
