*Bear cans (rent?)
****Volume: 52 Liters - it was this or 60, close call, both will fit a standard bear can, I thought 60 might be a bit too bulky for me
 
****Color: All Army Green w/ Black accents - was tempted by orange and indigo but was swayed by green being a good stashing color
 
****Torso Height: Shortest (18 inches) - as per measurements & email to Zpacks
 
****Belt Length: Small (26 inches and up) - current pack measures 22", get lumbar pad if too big
 
****Shoulder Pouch
 
****Key Pocket (.2 oz)
 
****Ice Axe Loops (Both Sides) (.1 oz) - for future mountaineering adventures
 
****Trekking Pole Holders, One Side (.2 oz)

***Krystle ordered [http://www.amazon.com/Altra-Womens-Superior-1-5-Running/dp/B00F36Y930 Altra Superior 1.5]. Superior 2.0 may be "blockier."
****Joe recommended - many people used them on JMT & PCT, zero drop but thicker sole than Vivos, better for rocky Sierras terrain

**camp/alternate (flip flops? chacos? barefoots?)
****Someone somewhere on the Internet said Superior dries more quickly than Lone Peak, but I did not confirm; these seem meshy and quick drying though.
