provacitive title i know. but seriously whos packing the big 80-85 mm spotters around? i made the desicion this year to go big. i could have bought one of the new 65mm razors but i decided to pay the weight penalty and pick up the 85. i know aron has talked befor about how he packs a big scope and its worth the weight penalty. anybody else? ive lightened up a few other areas of my pack/sleep system and am taking a new aproach on food (taking less) so my pack will still be a little lighter even though ive added 2 pounds to my optics. that being said its still sacrifices of comfort in the back country to allow for the advantage of optics. do you share my view on this?
