There are a lot of packs out there, from small vests designed to carry just water and a few other necessities for a long run to suitcases for your back that can lug everything you’d need for a week in the wilderness. But what do you bring when you’re combining a long run with a week in the wilderness?
That’s the situation RJ Thompson finds himself in as he prepares to run the entire 273-mile Long Trail without support. In the latest episode of the Long Trail Run (above), he visits Nathan Sports to talk packs. Nathan is working on designing the perfect adventure-running pack for Thompson’s Long Trail attempt.
