- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Love this pack! It is super comfortable and balances the weight well. There are a couple of things that could improve it though. There is no netting to hold a rain jacket or hat on the back. I added some thin bungee cord in a criss cross pattern to solve this. Only one hip pocket, but I have found these are usually too small for me anyway. This one isn't too bad though. I did add on another pocket (from gossamer gear). I tried strapping my poles to the pack, but ended up adding another pole bungee , though I supposed I could have just moved one from one side to the other since it comes with 2. I am not totally enamored with the zippered side pocket, seems like a regular pocket would be more functional. But overall, the comfort of the pack far outweighs these complaints. My new favorite pack!
