Addictive knife buying isn't guided by logic.

Its probably my age that makes people think I am an adult.

I still use a trio of Jansport packs I bought used some thirty years ago, the weight I am comfortable with just keeps getting lower as I progress through my (early) 60's (no more mile+ portages of (74 pound) canoe and then pack) in 2019 I do plan to get more practice carry of ready pack (practice being the carry of a loaded 30 pound to 40 pound pack (minimum 28 pound) for walks around my soon to be rural place of residence some 50 miles west of Portland (Rainier Oregon)

In my 30's it was a 70+ pound pack and my 40's down to 50 pound, my 50's I skipped practice, I will likely start with just 10/15 pounds to help me gradually adjust to the discomfort (ok pain, takes a while to get used to the distribution of pack weight)

The Jansport D-3 has been my go to pack for over 35 years. It has had a zipper replaced the lash tabs and leather patch in the back replaced but has served me literally thousand of miles with loads from 35 to seventy pounds. One time when I was much younger, A hiker was suffering from dehydration. We hydrated him, a friend helped him walk the last 5 miles down the trail and I lashed his 40 pound pack onto my 40 pounds and carried it the 5 miles and 3000 vertical feet to the parking lot. The Jansport was affectionately christened "The Green Pig." At least I think they were talking about the pack.

I am thinking more and more that the hobo bedroll is one of the best ways of carrying gear.
The problem is that there is a stigma against carrying a bedroll - it make the carrier look like a bum.
However if NorthFace sold bedroll sheets, everyone would carry them.
