The difference in weight between trekking poles might not seem like a lot at first, even in our Best Trekking Pole review http://bit.ly/29PdNnB the maximum difference is 16 ounces. But consider you are lifting your arm up thousands of times per day, potentially 10,000 or more times on a multi-day trip, and this is where the weight savings and reduced fatigue can really add up, so don't just brush off the lighter poles because they are only 5-10 ounces lighter. Here Andy Dahlen, Ryan O'Connell and Ian Nicholson comparing products while hiking into Boston Basin, with Forbidden Peak towering above. #geartesting #gearstories #trekking #thetrailspeaks #wildernessculture #getoutside +Black Diamond @Leki

Backpacking Backpack Top Pick, The @GregoryPacks Baltoro 65: bit.ly/29FikvM
The Baltoro 65 is super comfortable, carries heavier loads among the best in the review, its dual zippered lid pockets are awesome and easy to find items in and the large "U" shaped opening allows for easy access.

The ultimate expert, side-by-side, outdoor gear reviews.
Introduction
The OutdoorGearLab mission is simple: to create world’s best outdoor gear reviews.

Our secret sauce is side-by-side comparative reviews.

Here’s how it works:

1) We select the top products in each category.
2) Our Gear Testers put the products through detailed side-by-side tests, both in the lab and in the field, and score each product across a range of weighted categories.
3) We rank the products, explain why, and give awards to the best.
