Gear Review

Nice light weight pack

I decided I needed a lighter pack than what I was using for day ski tours, so I bought this here on BC.com. I like the pack very much, with a couple of cautions.
The top pocket could use a little more room, and it needs to be adjustable to extend, so that when it is full, it doesn't pull down so tight.This might be something that I can alter on the sewing machine?
Also, be aware that this pack does have it's weight limits in terms of comfortable load carrying. It is light after all, so don't expect to load it down with 20+ pounds of gear, and be all day comfortable. You really need a pack with a better suspension system to carry much weight.
The hip belt design is a little strange, but once I get used to it, I think it will be ok. Having said all that, I think it is a good pack for light, easy days when I don't need to carry over 13 pounds or so. The pack seems very well made, of high quality materials.
