Gear Review

3 5

It's OK but...

Pretty much as others have outlined below, the pack has a few shortcomings. The mini pockets won't fully secure your gear and the front compartment uses the main compartment space so when the main compartment is full, there's no room left in the front compartment. Also the vertical zip design for the front compartment access results in wasted space at the top of the front compartment.It's a bit small for a serious day-pack, and the photo here is a bit deceptive because it makes the pack look a bit bigger than it actually is. I think the BD Dart (which is 30L) would be a better choice unless you're specifically after a smaller day-pack. Construction and colour seem to be quite good though so I can't fault it for that. And the design is nice and clean so it shouldn't snag on things too readily.
