Probably my Favorite Pack Ever

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

So, I like a pack that is feature-rich, and this pack is loaded with handy organizational spots and comfort features. It's light, but it's focus really isn't on being ultra-light. If you don't mind packing a few extra oz in order to to have a lot of features, this is a win.

I also was a little bit worried about the squeaking issues from the auto-adjust hinged support systems, but I haven't heard a peep yet. If it does start making noise, I'm just going to hit it with a little silicone-based lubricant.

I like the lid/fannypack combo. I thought I would hate it because I generally try to stay away from fanny packs. But, the lid pack is more of sachel with a single strap. It's handy for afternoon walks.
