Wonder twin powers activate - make it a z55

I just spent a couple hours with this pack and it may be their best pack design yet.
Things I noticed:

1. The thicker belt and shoulder straps are great and should be on all of the z’packs.
2. The bigger front pocket with half moon zipper is great! This also should be on all of the z’packs. The vertical zippered pockets on all the other models just do not work as well.
3. I have owned a lot of packs that have “front access” and this pack (finally) does it right. If you look close at the picture you notice that the whole front can be opened with only two buckles to unclip. It’s really easier and quicker to open the front than open the top.

Only one bad thing to say about this pack- it’s too big. If this was a 55L pack, I would love to own one. If they take the new belts, shoulder straps, front half moon pocket, and front access and patch it on the z55. That will be one great pack.
