More Hipbelt problems
I had the same problem as sch3082605 on a NOLS course, critical design failure in the hipbelt. Cracking in the main load bearing plastic support which shifted the load to flimsy support straps. Note that this occurred with a good condition pack borrowed from a friend on the 2nd day hiking with a 68lb load. The fact that Gregory will replace the pack doesn't help me very much when I'm already miles into the wilderness. Also, field repairs are impossible without a hex key, which is idiocy. I'll stick with Osprey.
