ogio flight vest to be able to carry alot more stuff and spread out the load comfortably.

a giant loop coyote saddle bag for your camping gear and supplies, tent sleeping bag etc..

the giant loop is $300 bucks

a good sleeping back $150-300

you should be able to get a good bag for way less than 150

i've never paid more than 80 for a good backpacking bag. try dicks sporting goods

don't skimp on the tent though. nothing worse than getting soaked in the

middle of the night.

you can get a good +35 or +40* bag for less for sure even as low as 40 bucks at my local army/navy surplus store they have a military mummy bag that is +20* they have one that is really small.

but if you want a good +0* bag you can pay up to 400 bucks at rei or dicks or sports auth.

but yes a tent is a good place to spend the money savings...read the product ratings on tents online before you buy.

I remember one Thanksgiving the whole family was over my bro's house and he was using the giant flatscreen for a monitor. My sis in law wanted some scuba stuff so she went to dicks dot com. .........classic fubar event 👍

btw, it was not the stores site........

I would stay away from locomx at any cost. They sell alot of different things but don't seem to have any merchandise in stock. I ordered a quite popular helmet and goggles. They were backordered for 2 weeks before they told me and led me to believe that they had shipped. I cancel the order and they ship it anyway. Get the stuff three and a half weeks after ordering. They never answer the phones or return messages and they have yet to refund my money after returning it two weeks ago. I have had great luck with Bike Bandit though.
