- Best backpack ever!!
I bought this backpack last week for the upcoming backpacking season, after reading several reviews online and in Backpacker Magazine. I then went into a store that sold the pack and tried it on with 40 pounds in it. I walked around the store for 15 minutes and it literally felt awesome!! Comparing the pack to the pack I used last year, REI Womens Flash 58 (2 pounds), which I used all season and hiked over 200 miles with it fully loaded (35-40 lbs). This pack is leaps and bounds better in every way. Yes, it is 4 pounds but believe me it doesn't matter!! The pack fits like it was made for me, it did not feel like I was carrying 40 pounds it felt at least half that. Super impressed, I don't know why I waited so long to buy this pack. I also got a deal on this pack! $234 (with coupon discount code) total including a FREE Osprey UL stuff sack! Best money ever spent! When the pack arrived I immediately adjusted it and put all my gear in it including my bear canister fully loaded with 5 days of food. Everything minus water was in the pack and total weight around 35 pounds. I walked around the house for a while and was very impressed with the fit, no swaying, easy to bend over to pick things up, easy to reach my Nalgene bottles on the side. Also I love all the extra compression straps and places to hand gear. I easily hung my solar panels to a convenient spot where the sun will hit it. Can't say enough good things about this pack. It's all good! I don't think I will ever need another pack for thru hiking ever again , unless its to replace this one in ten years.
BUY IT ! :) YOU WILL LOVE IT !
