/ Revised Deuter Guide 35+ - Differences?
My question refers to the revised 2013 pack. UKC has a gear review commenting on the tweaks to the 2013 range, but I wonder if anyone has experience of old vs new Guide 35+ to comment on whether it is worth getting the new item.
I originally saw them at PyB, I have a preferred colour in the old range, and I can get it for about £20 less than the new one. Is it functionally better to go for the generic colour and extra price of the new pack?
I was going to post pics of the 2 items but they would be commercial links, I am guessing anyone who has tried both will know what they look like anyway.
also there is no compression strap on the bottom ski loop on the side of the bag (new version).
Quite frankly thats about it.
There was talk about the new pack being more figure hugging and stable. I wouldn't have thought the old pack was so well reviewed if it was "unstable" though.
