Purchased in 2011 for $189 plus tax, the club obtained a German-designed backpack that has load compression – like an internal frame, but a more open back ventilation system like an external – which is important for our hot summer days. Its carrying volume is reasonable for a 30 pound baseload plus the lid collar expands to provide collaspible space for food and consumables. With the same load capacity, its weight of 4 lb, 10 oz is right at the Kelty Tornado (HB-2/3) and 3/4th lb lighter than the Vaude Accept (HB-31/32) backpacks. The frame is easily adjusted to fit 15″-22″ torsos using a Velco strap along the main spine. An on-line video about this specific backpack can be seen here. So enjoy!
