Nice light weight pack
Really like the pack for light weight backpacking. The removable top lid is nice and easy. The waist belt is not padded and the shoulder straps are fairly thin. All part of the weight savings. Heavy loads are not what this pack is intended for. I’m not crazy about the double clasp setup that is required for the top compression straps. I think it could have been simplified with one strap and one buckle going from the stuff-it pocket to the haul loop. Pretty decent frameless pack from a mainstream company that is a nice alternative to some of the more expensive cottage shops.
great pack for it"s weight
I purchased this pack intending to try it out with a through hike of the pct in mind. I was impressed how well it handled the weekend hike I did with about 25 pounds, Comfortable!! But I decided it wasn’t big enough( there are sections of trail where you are required to carry a bear canister).
First Impressions: Short Hike
One person found this helpful.
I purchased this for my ultra light hike of the PCT this year. I went for a short hike of about seven miles with twenty pounds of gear, water, and food. I briskly hiked up 1200 feet, and did trail running on the return. The pack felt good, secure, and moved with me as I made quick jumps over rocks, and fast switch-backs.
Light weight but…
The pack LOOKs well made and very light weight as expected. But during my first 10 hour hike, the band on the right shoulder strap that held the water pack nozzle broke at the seam. There wasn’t enough material contact when they sew the seam. I’m likely to fix that minor issue myself, look more like a defect rather than the overall quality of the pack. Will update later…
Light but not very durable.
