/ AK47 - lid gets in the way of helmet?
Has anyone else found this?
Or a way of fixing the issue? This was a problem with one of my rucksacks but it fixed it's self during use (I think the semi rigid frame bent a bit)
Regarding the version with the non floating lid is this any better?
I found his as well mate - caused me to sell it. Shame because I really liked it otherwise.
My berghaus extrem alpine did exactly the same thing due to the aluminium backframe.
I ended up bending it away from my head to solve the problem.
At the bottom of the route take the floating lid off and stuff it in yr now empty rucksack - Your 55l load hauler is now a 35l no frills climbing sac with nothing flapping about :)
The problem isn't actually the lid, its the frame of the rucksack.
Yeah they look nice, bit heavy un-stripped, considering I'd be likely using it that way mostly. Still I guess you probably get that back in comfort and durability.
