Just In!

Just got the pack in a lil while back and finally had the time to open the box up. Fits perfectly and is plenty light for me. You can't beat the price for a product of this quality! I can't wait to get it on the trail!

My question is about sizing. At 18" I fall in the middle between the S/M and M/L. Is the suspension adjustable? And is there a difference in the size/weight of the pack itself between the 2 sizes? Which would be the better fit?

Responded on

The suspension on this pack is fixed. Since you measured 18" I would go with the M/L size. My personal opinion is to always size up in packs if you are on the borderline.
