packetGood pack, bad shoulder straps

Voted 4/5

I really like this pack. The roll top is easy to get things in and out of, two ice axe loops, pretty much everything I would want. It is a bit small, but I like traveling light.

The one thing I do hate about this pack is the shoulder straps. They're just a bit of this foam that makes heavy loads a bit uncomfortable to carry. Otherwise, great pack.

sarsampPerfect for a smaller torso

Voted 5/5

Just got this pack a little over a month ago and I love it. Having a narrower torso, I was nervous I would have problems with the fit but when I tried it on it fit very well, even over lots of layers.

The roll top is really easy to open and close, and has a small zip pocket on top perfect for storing things for quick access like sunblock, sunglasses or SPF lip balm.

Only downside is that the side pockets are a little shallow for carrying a Nalgene or similar larger water bottle. But overall, I think it's a great pack.
