  1. very educational post! As you note quality gear can be worth a higher price if it will last longer. I have some backpacks that have lasted 15 years or more.

  2. That’s the way to do it, Grant! The most difficult part for me is fighting the urge to upgrade when my old and well-worn stuff still does the job just fine. I can’t tell you how often I long for a beautiful new Gossamer Gear CubicTwinn tarp, when that silnylon thing pictured above has been getting the job done just fine for years (and will for years to come).
