    Looking for the right Summits On The Air day pack? I go over the packs I've used as well as my most recent purchase. In this video I also activate Two Rock Mountain W7A/YV-011 in the Prescott National Forest with my buddy Brian W7JET. This hike had quite a challenging bushwhack to it.

    Nothing wrong with monetizing or having affiliate links. Nothing wrong with not monetizing and avoiding affiliate links. Either is fine. Getting the content out there and more promotion of ham radio and products that are available is what's important. All of the YouTubers Bunch and those on YouTube who aren't in that "group" are doing great stuff, you included. Keep it up! :)

    I would never use an affiliate link. You shouldn't get paid for ham radio and or a show about it. Also if you really want good backpacks do not buy one on amazon go to a proper outfitter store and you must get fitted for one. That's right kids you want things to not rub and hurt the next day get fitted for a pack.

    Yes, admittedly it can be a rough crowd here. "If you can't run with the big dogs...stay on the porch".

    There will always be those who like what you have to say and those who will criticize. Don't take it too personally. Never, never, never allow what you have to say to be determined by the response of others.

    Yes - Agreeing with you, I would argue the most important thing you can do is get your pack fitted at an outfitter store before your purchase. . . and not be pre-committed to any certain brand. The fit should rule all.

    As someone who has logged 18,461 miles backpacking/hiking in 12 states and 3 contents...I can say unequivocally that this is 100% correct. An off-the-shelf back may feel comfortable when it is empty, but once you get loaded, it's characteristics can change drastically.

    Concur, the importance of that factor also increases exponentially as you move into heavier loads, more miles.
    ......and as you age....

    I agree with this statement, but every time I call FlexRadio or Elecraft and tell them they can't get paid for making a Ham Radio and they should send me one for free, I am hung-up on. *shrug* Some people.

    I guess we should stop paying for QRZ and CQ magazines also.
