Websites that do respond correctly to scrolling, etc regardless of OS or web browser. Yours is one. So, onward.

Not much - Work and daily life frustrates me - That's why I go hiking.

Your functionality question has "very unsatisfied" on both ends.  I'm assuming the first one is a typo.

Is this the gear I own, or the market as a whole?  There are airbag backpacks, I think it's fantastic those exist.  I don't have one because of my personal use and needs.

I am annoyed that I can hike pretty fast on flat terrain but uphills kick my ass.

Thanks Iíve changed that, Iím interested in the current gear you own. Looking at an air backpack seems very cool. Thanks for your feedback

I have noticed though that uphills are much easier when I am warned up. I recently did a short hike (the old Robe trail) that begins downhill then levels off for quite a while, then uphill at the end and the uphill seemed way better.

I learned a few things from that goofball the forest gnome.

1. Warm up and take frequent breaks while doing so.
2. Hydrate
3. Take frequent breaks
4. When taking a snack break, unload your entire pack to access your food.
5. Tell any and all hiker you meet on the trail about NWhikers and Packit Gourmet.
6. Tell any and all hikers about Spider Meadows
7. Go to great fishing lakes but don't tell anyone about them.
8. Obsess about hiking in the Wind River Range.
9. Don't forget the coffee
10. Backpack to high mountain lakes when a storm is predicted so you can be up all night in fear of your life, nearly freezing, and holding on to your tent poles so it doesn't blow away.

11. O' and last but not least, how NOT to fly fish yet still catch fish...that was the most important lesson.

Your website starts with "Design Innovation Plastics"

My biggest annoyance is dog poop bags left by the trail. You could design a plastic dog poop bag that dissolves in 6 hours when the owner forgets to pick it up. At least the poop has a chance to degrade then instead of festering for months in a plastic bag.

If they shoved it in their pack, then continued on their 6 hour hike, would it still dissolve?

Really.  Even MILFs are hard to find on most trails.

I would pay good money for a bluetooth jammer to disable wireless speakers in my vicinity.
