Awesome pack...if it fits you

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Bought this pack on Steep and Cheap and it truly was a steal. The build quality is amazing. Unfortunately the ergonomics just didn't fit my body. The gaps in the waist belt's vertically-oriented padding allowed the hard plastic inner support to rest directly on the points of my hip bones. Furthermore, no matter how I adjusted the shoulder straps and load lifters I always felt like my chest was a little too deep for the bag. I'm a usual pack size of men's medium with a 41-42" chest, and I had bought a M/L size pack. Again, this is just my body fit. Perhaps if the torso size was adjustable I could have made it work. Other than that the suspension was fantastic, ventilation was better than the Osprey Atmos, and the low weight for a 65L bag is impressive. Organization is top notch as well; I've never had a bag fit my stuff so well. Truly disappointed that it just wouldn't fit me. Two improvement suggestions: lose the bottle opener and add removable sleeping pad straps to the bottom.
