Variant 52 Pack

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have the Variant 28 and love it. I use it for everything. So I bought the Variant 52 when my overnight bag blew out its shoulder strap. Unfortunately I sold it after 5 days of use. I found it does not fit me particularly well. I think I am between sizes and was left with a pack that never quite sat on my hips so my shoulders took a beating. It is a nice design and has some cool features (though a bit heavy) but it did not work for me. Try it on first!

Hey Eric, I had the same problem and just exchanged the hipbelt to a smaller size. The medium belt fits good.
