Great suspension, but not built to last.

I was super stoked when I got this pack in the mail. I promptly loaded my rope and gear into it and walked around the house, bending over to see how the waist belt moved with me. I loved it.

Over the course of 5 months, I XC skied with it (awesome) and ice climbed with it (also awesome, allowed great movement). I don't feel that I put it through anything harder or tougher than what I was designed for. Yet here I am, putting it in a box and sending it back, wondering what the good folks at BD were thinking.

The nylon the the main portion of the pack is built from is fine, a bit thin maybe, but it'll do. My main issue is the light weight, grey stretchy fabric that makes the side and back pockets. It gets caught on everything, and new holes opened up on it right away. Out for a weekend XC sk, I found I actually had to check that the snow I was putting my pack down on was soft enough to not tear this material. It also would get caught on any spruce, willow or alder that was near the trail. And the ice tool loops? You'd think that they would have had the forsight to put a bit of a beefier material near where they intend for you to strap on sharp metal objects.

Maybe Alaska is too rugged for this pack. Maybe I'm not gentle enough with my packs (I really dont think I treated it poorly at all). But I can go out and get a custom made pack for less money than this pack costs. One that will stand up to snow, ice and ice tools.

The suspension system is good though. Maybe the 2nd or 3rd generation of this pack will have some modifications that will make it better. Right now though, I recommend spending your money on a different pack.

In the pictures it looks like a good pack. Light weight packs are expected to be more fragile though. At 1200 g (42 ounces) it is not a particularly light weight pack. I have re-sewn tool loops on go-lite packs for friends before, but you shouldn't have to.

So Solid; One Complaint

Believe the hype about BD's new series of packs. The suspension system is really that great and the packs are absolutely the most comfortable I have ever worn. I love the simplistic and utilitarian design. Two comments.

I had the Octane previously before I had this pack. I took it back and got this one instead. They are nearly the same price. For only $24 more, this pack is 4 liters bigger and comes with ice axe attachments at the top, which the Octane suspiciously does not. Not sure why they have both of these packs in the series; they are so close it is negligible, except for the fact that this has added functionality for some reason.

I have one complaint about this pack. The ventilation system sucks. I recently did a massive day hike in 85 degree heat and soaked the back of the pack in sweat - really soaked it. This is unfortunate, but everything else is so bomber I'm willing to look past it.
