More than a day-packer
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have used this backpack for quite a while and I am very satisfied with its functionality and variability. Lowe Alpine one more time proved its strength in creating backpacks. Here are my personal +++:
+ The height adjustable straps make it fit for different body types
+ Airzone allows ventilation of the back, ameliorating sweating through the hiking clothes
+ pockets at the belt can be used for sunglasses, cream, money, small purse, light, etc
+ volume of the backpack is highly adjustable, inner space can be compartmentalized, new is the large backside access (instead of the older model, where there was just a zipper on the side), makes it very easy to find things that have slipped further down.
+ adjustable top opening allows really to fill up this backpack to the top.
+ the rain cover is a great plus. I always appreciated this option, because wheather changes occur almost everywhere.
Any disadvantages ? I have not found anything yet.
This is a true all-rounder, adjustable to many different hiking situations.
