I would prefer to put it somewhere on the outer front corner of my pack, such that it could easily be seen as I approach other backpackers. The sticker on my can already identifies me when in camp.


...only with "HST" in the oval, right? Would TOPIX, or, HS TOPIX be acceptable alternatives? The unfortunate issue with the HST abbreviation is that at a glance it's usually mistaken for High Sierra Trail.

Guess I wouldn't change the sticker. It already Identifies lots of our vehicles. I'd just shrink the sticker and make it out of cloth, like those you see sewn onto some peoples hats.

Just an oval HST - would work...small and tasteful.
(Those already in HST probably would not get too confused...well maybe OldRanger but what else is new?)...others would just ask what it means...sort of an exclusive club?
If not...would proudly wear a "Got Mountains" oval too.
Trying to keep the letters/ embroidery to a minimum though and keep costs down.

Uh, not liking that idea. At 2.5"x1.5" that full design would be nearly impossible, at least as it is now with the URL at a readable scale at the bottom. Either the name of the site (readable), the URL or other will be required if I'm going to go with this idea.

Or, they would just assume it meant High Sierra Trail. I like TOPIX or HSTOPIX better.

Does the patch mean I don't need to learn the secret handshake? But I guess it means I need to learn to stitch a patch without perforating every finger.
