Great Pack...Bad Lid Design...

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought this as a gift for a friend...and bought the new Raven 14 (both back in March, 2013). This pack is totally awesome, as the previous reviewer says; EXCEPT now the lids don't want to tighten correctly and cross-thread; you have to 'fiddle' around with it till finally you get it right (ya kinda feel like you've won the lottery, or something when it finally screws on correctly!). They were a bit difficult at first, but now it's a real pain (don't get it just right, the water runs out of course!). Tried to contact Osprey to at least make them aware of this design problem.
(just a note: no, these weren't left in a hot car, nor was hot water put in the bladders; just poor threading on lids). And also for this reason...4 stars instead of 5
