    What pieces of gear do you use for your "coyoting out" camp?

    If any of you are thinking about the new KUIU tent and sleeping bag stay tuned for our next issue......

    Great lists and topic! What packs are they using?

    An interesting thing might be to dump their packs and list everything including old food wrappers!

    Ike, Guy, and Brandon primarily use Eberlestock. Dan Turvey likes Eberlestock as well, my choice is usually a Kifaru, Paradox, or Stone Glacier. I have an Eberlestock VX90 Battleship sitting in my office that will be put through the paces soon.

    Specifically, I am in love with the Eberlestock Blue Widow. I've said it in previous posts, but I feel it's an excellent combination of features I need in a pack for all western hunting scenarios from day hunts to extended backcountry trips.
