Laura Berridgewrote a review of Salomon Out Night 28L+5L Backpack - Women's on June 5, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion.
I was very skeptical to receive the Salomon Out Night 28 L Pack. To say I have an issue finding packs would be an understatement. I have tried just about every pack known to man but have always had something not work for me. I am 5'4 with very broad shoulder, very short torso, small bust, and athletic build. The Salomon Out Night 28 L (size small) fits me perfectly! It does not dig into my collar bones like most packs I have tried. The straps don't dig into me and don't feel cheap. The torso of the pack also fits like a glove, often times I find that packs are too long for me and there is a weird sag. The pack is very easy to adjust.
Things I love:
Pack is very minimalist, doesn't have a million different pockets and unnecessary bells and whistles.
I love that you can remove the brain if you prefer, that you can access the pack through the top or the side zipper.
It also have plenty of pockets to store chapstick, hand santizer, your phone, and snacks around the waist band and chest. (Bonus--you can use a Salomon flask as well as a camelback).
I have used this pack for day hiking, a little bit of hiking/running. It doesn't pack weight weird and when you do run with it doesn't bounce all over the place. As the weather gets nicer I will use it as an alpine pack and overnight pack (if you can pack light this pack can do it all).
My only complaint about the Salomon Out Night 25 L is I wish that they had thought a little bit more about ice tool attachments and made the side pockets for nalgenes a little bit bigger. They are hard to use if you want to shove stuff in them.
This pack is amazing and worth the investment. The price point isn't terrible either. If you have a short torso, this is the pack for you.
