    From my own reading I think any pressure cooker recipes should work equally well for all pressure cookers. The only change is time taken based on pressure (psi).

    It seems your cooker (Fissler...

    Awesome!

    Then you'll only have to worry about enough food and water for the day hike. I think both bags would be great and it would be more a matter of which one you think looks better. And I'm...

    Just a bit of opinion on bag size.

    When you say "hiking" the trail, would this mean that you're going to be camping? If you have to bring camping gear, tent, sleeping bag and food, then 25L isn't...

    Haha. Interesting question.

    I don't know what the "correct" answer is, but I've always referred to the side with the primary visual design as the "front".
    My reasoning is that if I set the bag...

    Agreed. The TS and Aeronauts have lovely handles. I'm sure they've tested the WF handles to make sure they're durable, but it feels like it can tear easily. Even a webbing loop would make me feel...

    Before you go ahead doing that, look into getting 2 "web dominators".
    They're pretty cheap and you can find them on amazon and ebay, and they're great for tidying up excess straps.

    Yeah, most of the size increase is thickness (8 inches WF vs 5 inch Pilot). With the rear compartment flattened, that becomes more like 4 inches thick. Note also that I'm not that tall at 5' 8" so if...

    Western Flyer: The Tardis Effect

    Hi everyone,
    I meant to do a quick review of my WF since a few weeks ago. I haven't got a trip coming up anytime soon, so I decided to just do a test pack.

    The A30 would be waayyy too big for carrying just the stuff in your second bag. That stuff should take roughly 5-10L of space. Perhaps you can look at the Pilot (13L) or Co-Pilot (10L) bags instead....

    Thank you for the update. I'm happy to see that it's strong enough to grip the clothes without them falling (even when wet).
