This post belongs in Gear, but the post operation there is failing. I use a Gossamer Gear Lonestar 30 and REI Flash 52, and am now looking for a 40 liter pack. The Montbell Alpine Light 40 ticks all my boxes, but I am unable to find reviews on it. I've had very good experience with the brand. Unluckily, the Portland, OR, store closed. Seems like they make very good gear, but their marketing in the US is not there. Anyone have comments on this pack? Thanks!
