Adjusting TFX packs (Torso Fit System) Lowe Alpine Centro Test Report by Thomas Vickers - Backpackgeartest.org. Tester Background: I grew up in the piney woods of southeast Texas.
Camping was a quick trip into the mosquito-infested woods behind the house. My style has evolved and over the last 4 or 5 years, I have begun to take a lighter weight approach to hiking gear (I still use sleeping bags and tents, just lighter versions). Lightweight walking - back packing minimalist style. I decided to do a bit of research for that quality sleeping bag I'd always promised myself.
I knew it'd be expensive to get what I wanted, but my birthday was coming up and there was the possibility of a few subs. The sleeping bag had to be exceptionally light but also very warm - having been caught out in a snowstorm at 2,500 feet in late April, I didn't want to face that possibility again. So light, warm, functional, compact and light - in other words I was looking for the holy grail of bags. But I was successful in my quest and, it was during my wanderings through the Internet, I found a hidden warren of sites dedicated to the lightweight backpacker and the even more extreme movement, the ultralight backpacker.
