/ Exped Mountain Pro 40 - Mountain Factor Bargain
Seconded, great pack. Probably the most comfortable and faff-free sack I've ever owned.
I've only ever seen the medium back length for sale. I'm 6ft and it fits me perfectly.
Nick and Chris, it's not obvious from the specs. I've read online but would this count as hand luggage for sleazyjet purposes?
I have also got a medium, fits me (5'9").
Mine has a reinforced base - newer model perhaps? Have to say, I haven't found issues with the shoulder straps or sternum strap yet either.
I use mine mainly for winter climbing in Scotland and find that when the pack is mostly empty on the route the lid tucks nicely into the pack with the drawcord pulled tight and the cordgrip locked under the haul loop. This creates a really compact sack and gives you plenty of headroom. See pic about halfway down this page... http://www.alexroddie.com/2013/01/bbc-out-of-doors-interview-on-location.html
I think you'd be pushing it if the sack was fully packed.
I've got a Black Ice atm and I'm under the impression there both the same size-ish and quality wise just as good as each other.
Can someone save me £77 and give me a bit of advice or shall I take the plunge?
It's just at that price its a cracking offer!
I bought mine to replace a Mutant and it's miles better. However, I probably wouldn't have bought one if I already had a Black Ice.
