My positives Absolute credit to Salomon for creating such a lightweight pack capable of going the long haul. I have used this pack for long missions, training runs and hopefully soon a race. The absolute benefits are:
Super stretchy back pocket just keeps expanding. On occasions I have had a thermal, raincoat, first aid kit, down jacket, beanie, gloves, spare food and more. There is always space for something more in there!
Washable! Who doesn’t want to be able to hurl their sweat-stained friend into the washing machine for a quick cleanse!
Soft flask design. I am not a bladder girl and never will be. If you need more fluids there is a second stretchy pocket on the back highly capable of carrying one or two more soft flasks.
Breathable. The fabrics are definitely superb. I never get too hot in my vest pack, even with the black colour that I have chosen.
Transportable. Because the pack is so small if packs down to nothing. I recently took it to Nepal with me and it was the first thing I packed into my suitcase.
Super light! This has to be the lightest long-haul pack on the market. Hands down this wins it for me!
