"What are you new, those have been around for a while...."
Um....married, with children......more than one hobby....ect......
I actually have too many backpacks already.
One full of mountianbike daypack gear,
One for my dunebuggy,
One for one of my two jeeps,
One for work, with work related stuff.
Two for work and home, which I alternate depending on what I want for reading material, Maxim mags, Bike mags, Jeep mags, other bs, music, bills, projects, or my child's school activites/homework.
My thoughts on Hardpacks...
Possibly unsafe for rider during a crash, a little too trendy for me,
How much my back might hurt during rides of any distance with more than ten pounds in one,..."and I have no back problems thus far..." since I know how much pounds adds up for long rides in your ass and back, like backpacking or carrying infants,
and the thoughts of how much more money I'll need to spend when the fad hits public schools if it does.
