In September I left my home in Portland for a week of hiking in Washington, split between Mount Rainier National Park and Olympic National Park. It was my first chance to hike with my new Guide's Pack & Tripod Quiver, as well as a bunch of new hiking clothes, including an Ibex hoody and coat I found out about thanks to the forum. The new gear worked out great, I'll be back in eleven years with a full review.

Based on early impressions, I'd say the Guide's Pack is somewhat larger than an iPhone and somewhat smaller than Mount Rainier on Flickr
My 8.5 pound telephoto lens fits nicely in the flexible rucksack compartment on Flickr
