as a charter member of LLSL (ladies like some legs) I have to second another edhatter who mentioned the non-cargo style shorts; nice to see some fellas not looking like little boys wearing hand me downs six sizes too big.

That's funny. I didn't even notice---they all have nice legs.

02P: Also old but not blind, agree re legs. Awesome Urban Hikers & Edhat & Aussies! I recall a photo of an Edhat bag posted a couple of months ago, taken somewhere in Europe(?) - Edhat is definitely international. Thanks again, Peter Sklar, RIP.
