Lightspeedwrote a review of Marmot Doug Coombs Memorial La Meije Pack on November 6, 2006
This pack rocks. It is huge and solid, but comfortable. As long at is isnt packed too tight/full, then it forms well to the back. If you arent familiar with back panel access, it is where your main compartments zipper is actually in the back panel. Seems weird at first but is a phenomenal idea. The front has another decent sized compartment with full zipper access. This is where it has dividers for avalanche/mountaineering gear etc. Also has a billows pocket on the very front that can hold two one-liter Nalgenes. The compression straps can go along the front as pictured in the website, or looped and snapped into another set of clips so that they hold/compress gear along the sides as apposed to the front. That is an awesome idea as well. Coombs was the man.
