My Requirements: 1) lightweight 2) waterproof 3) big enough for bulky camera gear yet can pass it off as my "personal item" on flights.
Used as daypack in Torres del Paine, plan to use for motorcycle trips. This bag worked great! Very light for the sturdiness of the fabric. Comes with 2 metal biners that have slots to lock them onto the straps. Great!
Weatherproofness: Absolutely waterproof. Nikon gear stayed safe thru thorny scrub, 8 hours in rain & days of dusty desert .
Packability: Easy to load it with DSLR, lenses, filters, jacket, wallet, a paperback: squeeze air out, roll all the way down , clip the biners to the lowest side loops, use the waist strap as a compression strap and tada! it looks like a school backpack. No trouble using it as my second carry-on item. Yet big enough to be your primary carry-on if you load it up.
Functionality: No pocket or bungee grid so I clipped my platypus bag and a drawstring bag to the chains. I'd add gear loops to the shoulder straps.
Comfort: Both 5'7" 36D me and my 6'2" thin hubby found comfy fits. The shoulder straps were cushy enough with <20lbs. Waist strap is good enough to take some of the load. Adjustable sternum strap.
See awful photo for size while on, daisy chains and the included biner. You can roll the top much farther down and turn it into a cube shape.
This is great pack from a great but little known manufacturer. I have been taking extended canoe trips through Canada for many years. Along with my never fail canvas Duluth I always carry a day pack with my and my bowman's rain gear, bug jackets, camera, bino's, sunscreen, snacks, maps GPS, etc. anything I need to get at while moving in a day. The struggle is finding a pack that is completely waterproof for the inevitable dump in the rapids, heavy rain or even sitting in a bit of standing water in the boat for a while. The pack also must carry the load well and comfortably as i wear it while portaging a canoe for sometimes long and usually rough portages. For my purposes in these conditions i need a specific set of design elements from a pack. Exped hit it right on the nose and after one 260 mile trip down the Bloodvein river four other guides i work with ordered this same pack.
Aside from its ability to fill or niche, Exped's gear is top of the line. Their build quality is simple and strong, the kind of gear you know from the first moment is gonna last through all the beatings. The little things are there to boot, ingenious strap management, and who doesn't love daisy chains? Most importantly however. It will comfortably carry 30 beers on ice and water.
