- Fast is fun
- I usually backpack alone on 1-3 day trips and since I've had this pack, life has been a ball. Everything I need fits and when I need extra space the Flashpack pocket works pretty well.
- Great pack
BIG fan of Exped. When I saw this on sale at Backcountrygear, I couldn't resist. The entire experience from purchase to delivery to meeting product expectations was flawless. The Lightening 45 is a very well made lightweight pack. Top loading with no frills like outside pockets. There are roomy belt pockets though but hard to reach side pockets more so for stabilizing outside stored items such as poles. The adjustability will no doubt be copied by any well thought out designer; extremely easy!
Only one drawback: My 3 liter hydration pack will not fit in the compartment that is made for this purpose. Exped states that a 2 liter hydration pack will fit, however. Thank you Backcountrygear for such awesome deals. LOVE IT!

Thank you for your question.
I took a look, and the version we have on hand is indeed the newer one with the strap threading underneath the side pockets.
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
