Live ultralight

I’m brand new to this podcast, but just listened to the first episode and it’s really cool to hear the guys discuss their backgrounds. They also sound very professional and I’m excited to learn more for my first backpacking trip!

Ready to Pull the Trigger

I have been researching this product and recently watched a YouTube video from John Kelley which led me to the Podcast. Now I have to determine my size. I’m round in all the wrong places and when I purchase XXL arms are too long even though I have a 35” sleeve length. Thanks guys
