great bag, beware of published specs

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased the Lamina Z Spark to have around in addition to my MH Ratio 32 down bag, simply as an alternative for predictably soggy trips. So far it has worked great. I have had it down into the mid 40s and high 30s and have stayed nice and cozy throughout the night sleeping in just base layers. It is very roomy, .

The Lamina Z Spark is impressively warm for how lightweight it is, and my Large size bag packs down to about 7" x 13" in the compression sack. Minus the stuff sack, my bag is 2-3 ounces heavier than advertised, so if you're picky about that, be forewarned.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm on a plane every other week or so for work, and I was excited to get this bag as a companion for my travels. Many of my trips are just one or two nights, but I've found that this bag is often just the right size to be the only bag I need to bring with me. I can fit a change of clothes (or two, if in the warmer months), my laptop, toiletries (I also use the Topo Dopp Kit), my Aeropress (gotta have it, travel is no excuse to drink crappy hotel coffee) and any other small odds or ends that I might need.

I also spend plenty of my weekends outdoors and this is adequate for hauling a cook kit, extra layers, hammock, or whatever else I need for a long day on the trail.

Yes, you can get by with most any backpack, but the obvious allure of the Klettersack is not only its cool retro styling, but also its simplicity. I love the less-is-more design of the Klettersack. It feels like it will hold up for a long time, and I love its cross-over sensibility between work, travel, and trail. My only little dislike are the side pockets. They are functional for small/flat items, but fairly useless for most water 1L water bottles. They are fit flush to the sides of the backpack so squeezing a bottle into them really impedes upon the internal volume of the pack. They do however, fit a flask or a tallboy quite nicely ;^)
