Edit: Granite Gear Aurora Day Pack- Karen Ross


Gender: Female
Height:	5'0" (1.5 meters) 
Weight: 103 lbs.  (47 kilos)	

Edit: I may get overridden, but I would go with 1.5 m and 4 kg. 

 
Listed weight: 2.2 lbs (1.0 kilos)
Measured weight: 2.2 lbs (1.0 kilos)

Edit: Once again, I would abbreviate kilos, since you are abbreviating pounds. 

I went to the Granite Gear website to see if any 
instructions were provided there: for the Aurora, none were.

Edit: I get it, but it seems a little complicated. How about  “instructions
were provided for the Aurora, but none were posted.”

The exterior pockets are not expandable but are built into the front 
of the pack for a nice stream-lined look.  

Edit: streamlined

Using the Aurora
The 
sleeping bag filled about ¾ of the bag 

Note: I hope the fraction comes out better in html since I can
well in the email version.

If you have incorporated your edits, you do not have to repost unless
specifically instructed to do so.  You may proceed with the upload.

Random knowlege gained from BGT

I was just on Amazon.com ordering a few things and was playing their Nickel 
Trivia game (where you answer trivia questions about Amazon and earn a nickel 
for each correct answer - I think you can answer 5 questions a day).  Anyways, 
the last question today was:

The Wave, the Squirt, and the Juice--available at great prices today in the 
Tools & Hardware Store--are the names of what? 

Cool new models from Nike in our Apparel & Accessories Store 
Refreshing sodas 
Upcoming CIA operations 
Hot-selling, ultracool multitools from Leatherman  

Didn't even have to look it up. =)

LAZERBRITE LONG TERM Scott

EVALUATOR DATA

Age: 46
Height and Weight: 6 feet 200 lbs
Gender: Male
San Diego CA
E-mail address: petroglyphcanyon AT yahoo.com spelled out to 
eliminate automatic harvesting of e-mail addresses.

EVALUATOR EXPERENCE LEVEL

I have been backpacking since the early 70's spending as much as a 
month at high altitude in all seasons. With regards to flashlights, 
lanterns and LED lights I have to admit that I avoid them largely due 
to the size and weight issues. A small AAA single cell Maglight ™ is 
usually my backpacking light of choice. The new LED lights seem super 
and I am anxious to put it through the paces.
PRODUCT AND COMPANY

Manufacturer:
Clear Products, Inc.
http://www.lazerbrite.com/

Product Description: 
The product as tested is a two light module flashlight, signal light 
and area light system with a red and a blue LED light module, a 
separate glow tube/handle, a head strap and a lanyard. You activate 
them by twisting the bottom of the light module to make the battery

RE: Reposting of Reports

Sorry Andrew - my bad - I forgot that part.  It was my first attempt at
an initial report and had received the email suggesting the fleshing out
but I forgot about the "REPOST".  Sorry.  Will remember now in the
future.

Thanks!
Jodi

Abnormality IS the Normality at this Locality
Hi Jodi and others

PLEASE put REPOST in your subject line if you are re-posting your 
report.  It would also be helpful if you waited until you had your test 
monitor's comments BEFORE reposting, so as to minimise the impact on
their 
time.  Also, reposting of Reports is not necessary unless you feel that
you 
have made significant changes to your Report which you then wish to have

reviewed.

Keep in mind that Test Monitor's are volunteers and should only be
expected 
to go through your report once.
