  4. Zero SARC

    I have 2 McHale packs and love them. On a 0-SARC I would stay as simple as possible. One layer of lenomesh, 3/4'' musical compression straps (they're removeable), no zip access, summit flap (which I use 75% of the time), single layer bottom?, climbing belt (works great with a harness). You may also want to think about getting the standard SARC size. It's just more versitle (ie: winter gear). You can always have him make it a bit smaller in circumference so the volume is betten the two models. I'd also think about not getting an 'extension skirt.' These always annoyed me on other packs. It's a great way to save weight and get into your pack faster. I had him extend the main body of the pack a few inches to compensate for the slight loss in pack hight/volume. Tim

  10. Light Machines

    Got a question for you light machine users out there... Tried contacting Grivel NA about this, but they haven't gotten back to me yet. My cascade and mixed picks on my tools 'give' about 1/8 of an inch when seated in the head of the tool. I've noticed this with other people's machines as well, so I don't think it's a defect. Even when I crank down the bolt as tight as possible it still gives a bit when i hang from the tool or weight it. I noticed this problem is corrected in their new line as they redid the new pick/head interference set up. I know the pick isn't going anywhere, but it just bugs me how it moves like that. Anyone have any ideas?
  11. Simmond Najas

    Anyone else had any experience with the Najas? How do the picks measure up against bd/grivel... Anyone had cold hand problems with the partly ruberized handle?
  12. Filing Horizontal Front Points

    I asked the guys at BD this once, they suggested to follow their original file on the sabertooths. So I just file lightly to keep a nice horizontal edge. Top to bottom, back to front. Of course they do get more trapezoidal as you file them more and more, so I do try to hit the sides to square it off slightly..
  13. Yeah, good call Wills... Went with these babies as well, and the best thing, They look like vintage 80s MJs and chicks in the 80s clubs totally dig 'em.
