BLP 003: Steve Speck and the Anatomy of a Backpack

You're going to love this episode!  Steve Speck joins me on the podcast to discuss the anatomy of a backpack.  We break it down barney style so you can understand what each part of a pack does and how it functions.  We discuss the do's and don'ts of how to wear a backpack and how to pack a backpack.  

Steve is the Co-Founder of Exo Mountain Gear.  A backpack company specializing in backcountry hunting.  His packs carry heavy loads like a champ and they're incredibly thought out and well designed.  You'll get to hear straight from Steve about what he's learned from designing packs and how he's come to be where he's at with his designs.  

Every backpacker out there needs to hear this episode!  You're going to love it and if you're like me, you're going to take home a few nuggets of information that are actionable the next time you head out the door on an adventure.
