Murmur Hyperlight Backpack
- Product Review (submitted on October 24, 2013):
- I use the Murmur as daypack, and for 2 to 3 night backpacking trips, and have enjoyed using it. It is a joy to hike with...I love the large mesh pocket on the front, and the spacious side pockets. I like to use the 23.7oz size Smartwater bottles - they fit nicely and are easy to retrieve. I'm a small framed 5'6" female, and the shoulder straps need to be cinched up all the way on me. I have no issue with the minimal hip strap, it works fine for me. However, I would like to suggest that the hip strap buckles be a different color from the shoulder strap buckles, because I would frequently get them buckled up incorrectly - they got crossed...as they look and feel identical. (The ends of the shoulder straps, buckle around your chest) . I carry around 15 pounds and it feels great on me. I wasn't sure if I would like the top closure method...there were no instructions included on how to close the pack...but with using a plastic bag liner, I've never had a issue with my gear falling out. So, overall - It has held up fine- no noticeable wear. I've learned to trust the top closure, the price was good, and it's amazingly light and designed with simple clean lines - which I love. I recommend it.
