Yeah, my under armour shirts will smell like shit if I don't vinegar them. Even then, sometimes I have to wash them in hot water to kill it. The merino wool fabrics seem to resist that better, yet don't dry as quickly.
Curzon - yeah, I'm still shopping. Haven't gotten all the essentials yet. Will buy a shitload tonight that should tide me over.
I ended up picking up the Osprey Porter, the Kelty Redwing, the Rick Steeves convertable, and two Osprey Farpoint's - S/M and L/XL to try out. I've heard the S/M is the only size that will fit the carryon restrictions but I didn't want to get stuck with it being uncomfortable on my back. Bonus with the Farpoint is that it comes with a removable day pack, so one less thing I have to buy.
Picked up the Canon S100. Now I need a memory card.
