What was wrong with my review:
I've used mine several times now and am happy with it. I love the drawcord feature and find the lid very useful, it's deep/re-enforced so holds it's shape, that seems to stop gear falling out when you open it. Only small complaingt is the side pockets/wand pockets are a bit tight for water bottles, they hold them securely but I can't get them out without taking the pack off. A minor gripe and at least I know I won't loose one!
Thanks Steve :o)
Do you know if they have any plans for a larger pack at all? Could do with something in the 70 litre range...
Looks like it'd be a perfect summer Alpine pack.
As for your comment about light weight packs, you've obviously never noticed the Arc'teryx Cierzo 35 which is about 600gm.
I'm kinda torn between the two, but I think that the Montane despite the extra 300gms will probably be a slightly better pack in terms of comfort and features. Especially the small pouch on the hipbelt, I really like them, very useful.
