well balanced pack

4

Got this pack over a year ago and was finally able to take it on an overnight trip this past weekend on the AT near Roanoke Va. Pack was well balanced even when extended to 55 L. good pocket storage and lots of options on the outside of the pack to tie things on. shoulder adjustment straps for me were great as they allow you to balance the load to your preference. love the zippered entry on the side for access to items down in your pack without having to go through the top. 8 miles into the second day and the pack still felt great. as mentioned by other posts, main con is lack of instructions on the details of the pack. you can tell a lot of thought went into the design of the pack, just wish it was better communicated. looking forward to my next trip with this pack.

Would not buy this - the shoulder straps are extremely painf

The construction is good; plenty of room in the pack and lots of good pockets and space; however, the shoulder straps are marginally (if at all) padded. I took this on a 10-day backpacking trip though Europe; we walked between 6-12 miles per day and I found my shoulders were screaming early into the day. I was surprised at how bad it felt. I wish I could return it because I cannot see myself ever using this again, even for short trips. Don't buy.

Nice pack

The pack is nice, but I wish it had instructions on all the options it has. I figured things out using YouTube and playing with it. I like how it has options to remove parts I don't need all the time, ie. BFF Pad, waist belt, which helps to reduce weight.

Also having difficulty finding out where to fix the straps from the expansion lid onto the pack. The old model was very easy to understand which made for quick packing and compression. Other than that, this pack is really durable, great for mountaineering, expands nicely and high quality. Th drinking tube hole is unnecessarily small. It took me almost 10 minutes to squeeze my bite valve through. Also, an issue that I didn't have on the older version of this pack. I think this pack presents the same value the old one did. This pack is more comfortable to carry, more durable material, IMO more attractive but the drink valve hole and lack of instruction for features as simple as fixing the expansions strap metal clips onto the pack makes it a bit difficult to completely fall in love with it. Pleeeease post instructions for this pack EB.
