Rick Saez created The Outdoor Biz Podcast to be more than a venue solely for entertainment or passive listening while you kill time commuting to work or wait for a plane. The hope is these conversations are informative and a call to action. Whether you hear something you didn’t know about a close friend or colleague, learn about new business resources or find a way to support a cause close to your heart I hope you take action.

Great job on the pack. I took the 2.0 as my only pack on a work trip to Denver and it worked great. Probably not your intended use case but when you don’t have shoes in the side pockets the central area is really great for packing clothes flat. It really hold a lot too, which was good since I had to take an extra jacket and some clothes for different types of occasions. I like the extra tough inner wall on the shoe pockets, I’m guessing you did that for track spikes or something but it does make it seem like the internals are more protected from the mud etc. Anyway you guys have designed and built a tank and I appreciate the tweaks you’ve made to the new version.
