    Fatpacking

    I heard this term today and thought it's a great term for fatbike packing/camping. Kinda says it all I think. It may be a common term but it's the first time I've heard it.

    My helmet's off to you industrious cats sewing your own bags. Would love to do that someday. 'Til then, I'm about to receive a set from Scott Felter of The Porcelain Rocket—very nice guy:

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/cargonistas/6074750041/" title="Fatpacking for the Fatback"><img src="https://farm7.static.flickr.com/6193/6074750041_161ae92208_b.jpg" width="1024" height="870" alt="Fatpacking for the Fatback"></a>

    Check out more from Scott:

    I'll post some pics of these on the Fatback once they arrive.

    If Huffy made an airplane, would you fly in it?

    Not my term

    I make no claim on the term Fatpacking as I saw it in another post or on a website and just thought it was the perfect term for what folks are doing with Fatbikes. It's great reading the stories of what/where/how folks are making use of this incredible machine.

    Hope everyone is having fun on their bikes no matter where they go!

    It's all of ours. I just never liked the term bikepacking. I guess for the same reason I don't like "hike-a-bike." I feel like I need a skirt on when I say those things. Or a neon green safety jacket.
