Re: [DrewEckhardt] n00b question, Side pack vs PRO pack

In reply to:
It takes 2-3X as much floor space

It doesn't have to. I watch a couple of old farts do it, and they keep the ends folded over to reduce space usage, and even then, it's only for about a minute while they get it stacked. Once it's stacked, it takes no more space than a pro pack.

The people wasting all the space are the inconsiderate folks who spread their gear out in the packing area, and then disappear for an hour or two, tying up all that space that is needed by others.

And since it's impolite to mess with someone else's gear, you hesitate to pick it up and push it aside to get it out of the way.
