Backpacks, layering systems and shelters w/ Andrew Whitney — The Game Trail Podcast - Ep. 8

Andrew Whitney of Stone Glacier sits down to chat about picking a backpack, what layering systems to use for early and late-season hunts, and his favorite shelter choices. More specifically, Trail and Andrew talk about the difference between Stone Glaicer’s Krux and XCurve frames and why he believes the Krux is the better choice for most people. Andrew also talks about how to load a backpack and how you should consider packing each item of gear. He talks about the reasons why he prefers merino layers for early-season hunts and synthetics for late-season and why a down vest is a great piece of gear for early-season hunts. They round out the discussion by discussing sleep systems and why a 15° bag is likely the only bag you need.
