heavy and noisy
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Pretty unhappy with this pack. I don't have a scale but the listed weight of this pack seems way off. I was surprised by the weight of this pack un-loaded. Loaded up with a rope, alpine rack and gear for a day or overnight the heft is pretty noticeable. The pack does carry pretty well but the weight is very noticeable. The other weird thing is that the suspension system has a pivoting shoulder strap and now every step you take there is a super annoying squeak. This may be nit-picky but after a recent 45 min hike in to a remote crag it nearly drove me crazy. tried to lube it with wd40 but can't seem to fix it.
