    duh

    Yeah live in upstate ny near adirondack park hiked some of the mountains around here. Thinking about doing the whole 46er thing soon some of my friends hv completed it a few times, but way to fast for me. I want to enjoy being out in the woods fishing etc. Not really into racing to get them done.

    Welcome to HF!
    From webbings and rings I'll be switching to whoopies primarily to reduce weight and bulk in the pack. And also bec. they're very simple to use....and cool.
