No More Back Packs For Me
Reviewed by Pack Leader from Ohio on Saturday, September 17, 2016
I am an older person who enjoys day hiking with my dogs. I have a bad shoulder and even though I only carry about ten pounds, a backpack becomes uncomfortable very quickly. I worried that this lumbar pack wouldn't be big enough for all that I like to have with me but it is actually very roomy and I have yet to fill it. I roll my raincoat and strap to the bottom of it with the straps provided. I have been out three times with it and never thought of it once...it is so comfortable. It allows your back to breathe....and the compression straps allow you to tighten it down so there is no flopping. Water bottle pockets have elastic cinches to tighten around whatever size bottle you like. I do wish it had pockets on the side that you could reach without taking it off....but that's the only improvement I can suggest. I debated between the Tour and the larger style....but the larger one would have been TOO big for my purposes. I am delighted with the Mountainsmith Tour Lumbar Pack....no more backpacks for me!
