So I plan on doing some light one or two night backpacking trips with my 6 year old this summer. I haven't really done this stuff by myself. Last time I did this was 15 years ago as a kid. I'm accumulating the gear I need like sleeping bags, tent, sleeping pads, stuff like that. But i'm having the hardest time with the pack. I'm used to heavy duty gear, Kifaru, MR and when I was in the Marines all gear was over built. I just picked up a Gregory Baltoro 75 today and I know it's a great pack and fits really well but I cant get beyond how flimsy it feels in comparison. The buckles just don't seem strong, and I miss the 1000d and 500d. I'm thinking about just getting a Kifaru 24" frame and a Woodsman with some side pockets and returning the Gregory. It's just about the same weight! Why would I not just do that to have a pack that will last a lifetime instead of having the Gregory?
