    Smart Alec as an Impromptu UL Hiking / Camping Bag

    I am in the midst of going ultralight with my backpacking gear and have yet to decide on or purchase a new pack. A chance for a last minute overnight camp/hike came up this weekend in Gulf Shores, AL. My only backpack right now is my Smart Alec, so I decided to give it a whirl. While 26 liters wouldn’t quite be enough for a section or thru hike, it worked for an overnight for me and my chihuahua, Indy. I didn’t think to take a pic, apologies, I may recreate the pack to photograph and add it. It held the following:
    MHW ghost UL 1 tent
    6x8 tarp
    MHW heratio 15 sleeping bag
    Talenti jar of doggy food
    Extra socks
    Extra underwear
    Toothbrush/paste
    Deodorant
    Two bottles of water
    Collapsible water cup (for doggy)
    Granola bars
    And I had a generic foam sleep pad bungeed on the outside of the bag. I was wearing athletic clothing and a fleece and rain jacket. The temps went from 74 down 34 and we had high winds and a deluge of rain and lightning. The Smart Alec and tent kept everything warm and dry.

    Cute pup. I wish they would bring back the Smart Alec. It's so difficult to find one for resale. And I'm not a fan of cordura. So I'm hoping for 525 ballistic colours. A Guide's Edition SA would be cool.
