- Product Review (submitted on August 19, 2012):
- Except for the straps this pack is well-designed and thought out. The problem is that the straps are incredibly bulky which makes this pack not convinent to take with you unless you have a lot of extra space. Specifically, a pack like the sea to summit ultralight day pack ends up taking up only abuot 1/3 - 1/2 of the space of this bag due to the bulky foam shoulder pads in this pack. This pack is more comfortable for long hikes than the sea to summit, but since you likely won't be carrying much weight in this pack anyways, I think the straps are overkill. The cinch closer is much nicer though than on the sea to summit, but this pack is also missing a simple hang loop which would be a nice addition with essentially no weight penalty.
