ABOUT THE DAILY SMACKDOWN:
The backcountry is full of difficult decisions: amenities vs. weight, solitude vs. companionship, forging ahead vs. turning back. But those choices are downright easy compared to these match-ups. Each day, we’ll pit two backcountry stalwarts against one another and you get to decide which one comes out on top. Choose wisely, and defend your selection by sharing your pick on Facebook or tweeting it to @backpackermag using hashtag #BPsmackdown.
