Incredibly powerful pack!

Decade ago I owned a MS lumbar pack very simillar design as this one--huge capacity,optional single/braces shoulder straps, side stretch water bottle pockets...while I was touring cycling in west China/Tibet border in summer, I never regret to have it on my back, it carrys 3 liters of water, energy bar, snacks, a Jetboil 1L suite, DC and spare battery, rain ware, down jacket, wallet and passport, and some other accessories. The most important thing is that the pack gives my upper back nice breath,and I fill a Platypus of hot water and slip it into the gap of the waistpad on coasting down from freezing 15000 feet mt pass, this set offers my extra warmth. Sometimes I can deposit my bike and have the lumbar pack for a day hike into the woods. Finally I traded it for a hand-made tibetan style leather pack with a T-cowboy.
Now I get this new version and still love it , materials evolved a lot, and seems stronger than the old one. I might have it for more day hiking and even trail running. Hey, is that "TLS" stands for " Tell Lovely Story"?
