    Lepmeister- very nice, very nice indeed.
    Love the look into your woods and a peek at the aboriginy way.
    Since your a fan of the Ohm at 5:50 (ish) in this vid is a modded Ohm.
    Chris is excellent to work with and the mod was economical.
    My Ohm squeeked some whereas Poofs didn't-go figure.
    It was my first time carrying an Ohm for a couple of days and it will
    be on my back frequently.

    The new tarp's looking good, mate. Have you rigged up the STLs for it yet?

    Looks like you're really happy with your new Ohm. I'm still stuck like a donkey between two piles of hay over my "Ohm versus Aarn Mountain Magic 55" decision. Of course Mrs M (now known of as kiwigrrl) doesn't see why I need either . If only someone would say something bad about the Ohm and make my decision easier!!

    Yes the Ohm is superb. And it do keep you company with a few words here and there. Like a good friend. And like you I have come to love mine.

    And thanks for the video. Always looking forward to your reports.

    If you mess with the load lifters you can get most of the squeaking to disappear. Otherwise I also notice when I pack more than 20 lbs it does squeak a bit.
    I was a little blas'e about it before the walk, but once there - especially after the cave and at the axe grinds I was really feeling or getting a appreciation for what I was seeing.

    I did snug the sides up a little after the cave and "my mate in the woods" was not to be heard again... missed him a bit

    Do you have that down your way?
    My OHM whines once in a while...a wee adjustment fixes it. I am all about those big side pockets!
    Nice video......

    Thanks Shug, halloween is alive in the land of Oz. How good are those pockets... It was purhased after watching your "Pack Load" vids many times. Thanks for leading the way.

    They come with their own identities which I love, just shows that they are made by people rather than machines.

    STL's are GO!!! Thanks mate. They are working a treat.

    Sorry for the thread resurrection, but I am considering an Ohm. Anyone taken one on a week or two trip? If not do you switch to something else?
