A small and compact pack for lightweight fanatics. The padding on the hip and shoulder straps has been kept to a minimum, although provide plenty of comfort for the smaller loads this pack will carry. It’s pretty stable (no compression straps), the back system does a great job of keeping you cool and the compact design makes it perfect for summer day walks. Comes with whistle buckle and rain cover. Well-priced.
