    The DUPR does not guarantee you will be allowed to (attempt to) summit Katahdin. Despite all the other beautiful options, that is the goal of a majority of BSP users.

    I'm wearing my slippers right now.

    I have one of each and my back is still sweaty most of the time. Not as bad as with a lie-flat pack but it's not a silver bullet either.
