I know there are a LOT of threads about back packs and/or frames, but I'm looking for something I can order on the web to ship to my son-in-law in Cali. It's a birthday present getting them setup for when they move up here.
Can ya'll suggest something? Pack, frame or combo. If i just have it shipped to him there, i can normally buy better gear and put the shipping cost into it instead of UPS's pocket.
Also, I'm going to be looking for me one. The Barney sounds like it's well liked, but is there a frame that is more liked than the others? I'm in Fairbanks so I haven't even SEEN a Barney's yet.
