  1. I have some observations/tips for your AT thru-hiking list. The Osprey Exos is about 1lb lighter than the Aura. A pair of trail “shoes” are much lighter (possibly cheaper; you’ll probably need 5 pairs) than hiking boots. Be sure to wear each pair of boots/shoes for two weeks before your thru-hike. Nalgene bottles are also very heavy. You’ll want to reuse smart water bottels or platypus http://amzn.to/2lghqY7 etc.

    1. Hi Ben, for some reason it sent your comment to spam, so I just saw it now – sorry!!! I know about the Exos, but I really like the AG part of the pack, I have some back problems and I feel like the aura would be more comfortable in the long run. For my shoes, I was learning towards boots while it is cold, and then switching to trail shoes that are going to be more comfortable. I never thru-hiked before, so that is very helpful, I never thought I’d need that many!!!! People use smart water bottles because a sawyer filter fits right?
