    furtigan,

    have you decided which pack you're gonna get?

    That's a darn good idea. You should go to college or something.

    I was planning on the Osprey Atmos, but I'm gonna look at Cannibal's ULA Catalyst this weekend.

    Next week I'm heading to REI in Atlanta, then to Neel's Gap, and I'll hopefully buy there. If you got a suggestion, speak up ...

    You could also use mint flavored dental floss to flavor your tea, LOL! I think I would do this with a new piece, I really wouldn't want to recycle it for this use, LOL! Someone on WB said you could use dental floss as a fire starter but I haven't tried that to evaluate it yet!

    Just tried to light some with my bic lighter. Didn't burn, just melted. Confirmed it's nylon via the "burn test" here:

    my brand was "equate". Maybe someone knows a brand with cotton inside?

    Resistance is futile!

    Be sure to bring ALL your stuff. You and I are pretty similar build and size wise, so you should be able to do a real "fit test" with my pack.

    Man, I thought I was bad about looking for stuff to set on fire!

    One thing to remember is most cotton floss is coated in paraffin to make it slide between the teeth and gums easier. That may be why it seemed to melt; I don't know, just a thought.

    Just stay away from the Gregory Z55, or any of them for that matter. Everyone I knew with one including myself had major issues requiring it to be sent back to the company. They are great about sending you a loner pack and doing all of it for free. But my loner pack also broke, my hiking parterners loner of a different gregory also broke.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Heh, I actually just bought a Z55 as it was the only one in any of the stores here that actually fit me. I was thinking of returning it though for different reasons.
