Is green a color in a big shot for a male?
What does that compression on the bottom do?
What does those compression on the back straps do?
1. The green seems pretty gender-neutral to me, if anything on the masculine side, so you'd be good.
2. The bottom compression straps could be used for a sleeping bag or pad, or even a small tent. This is what sold me over the Hot Shot, actually.
3. The extra straps on the back straps are there to get a better fit. Useful when you have a heavier load toward the bottom, they'll pull the bag closer to your upper back, making the load feel less bulky and more manageable.
Hope this helps!
