My hiking style and personality have been changing since I started hiking back in 2013. As I transition from day hikes into overnighters and backpacking my gear is not only increasing but becoming lighter.
I need to limit the weight in my pack due to my TM feet. That means as much ultralight gear as I can find and afford. No more “highschool” backpacks for me. I go to MEC or Atmosphere now to find my gear.
