"No man ever stood the lower in my estimation for having a patch in his clothes; yet I am sure that there is a greater anxiety, commonly, to have fashionable, or at least clean and unpatched clothes, than to have a sound conscience." Henry David Thoreau Walden, Economy
I have an old chest pack that was purchased years ago on a steal. It is the William Joseph Access Pack
My pack has cigerette burns and broken straps. But it has done me well on many trips. The pack is highly versatile and has been able to serve me well on many of the famous streams the PA has.
