Anyone use this thoughts?
I was seriously looking at them a few years back but then I heard they had a short torso, so I gave up the search. When you're built like a gorilla it's really hard to find anything that fits. Packs, sleeping bags and the like are next to impossible to find.
If your tall the hip belt is more like a belly belt . Other wise I love the concept of the pack so versatile .
Had one and got rid of it couldn't make it comfortable and I'm a short ass. The Karrimor SF Sabre range are similar. The 40l and above can take the zip on side pockets.
Not a bad pack, not a good pack IMHO, the one I owned was not very comfortable or durable. I really like the idea of versatility and configuring the pack to different load outs but this pack did not really have that much to offer.
Will got one in trade like the design but as was stated its made for a short person.
Had one traded it away. Ok for short, day hikes or ez overnight trips. It is simple and light. Best designed for a shorter person for reasons previously stated. No comparison to a well made, modern backpack. For longer walks in difficult terrain, a good internal frame backpack is hard to beat. Backcountry.com has some packs on sale. I now own an Osprey Zenith 88. Very well made and roomy enough to carry fishing, hunting, or climbing gear. Just my $.02.
