“Hi, two questions for you because I couldn't tell from the two pictures:
-Are the "side mesh pockets" in addition to the waist belt pockets and the water bottle pockets?
-Does each front panel storage pocket have its own zipper?
And two more:
-Does the 610 Cordura HP have a DWR finish, or some water repellency on the in-side?
-Are you expecting to receive any more of these packs, maybe in a larger torso size? (>21" )
No answer after 15 days, so I found the first two answers elsewhere: https://sectionhiker.com/mountainsmith-scream-55-backpack-review/
-This review seems to say that the "side mesh pockets" ARE the water bottle pockets.
-Yes, each front panel pocket has its own side zipper.
-Unasked, but opinion given in above review: Max comfortable weight capacity 25-30 pounds, by reviewers experience. 35# according to designer, 45# according to mfg.
and another review: https://gearinstitute.com/gear-review/mountainsmith-scream-55/
The second review link I gave refers to a more recent model year Scream 55 than the one STP is selling. Sorry. [I don't know how to edit my previous answer.]
