High quality, comfortable, and highly functional
I have a red and black Syndicate 5+4. The pack is built extremely well. The sewing is very durable and the embossed Misfit logos are a nice touch. The rubber straps that hold the pods ion are very comfortable and the pods go in for a really tight fit but when you pull on the straps to get a full pod out and the pod comes out to where it is barely in there for you to pull out is just lets you know how much thought Syndicate put into the functionality of the harness. It is extremely comfortable due to the freezable gel pack in lower back portion of the pack. You just have to try it to really appreciate how comfortable it really is. Everything about the Misfit harnesses are quality and for the price there really isn't a pack out there that has as good of a functionality over price ratio.
Buy this harness and you won't regret it. It is like the Rolls Royce of packs because it looks sick and its also the most comfortable harness by far I have ever used. Also the guys from Syndicate are really good about customer service because when I was researching packs to buy I actually called them and they gave me a breakdown of every piece of the harness and why that particular piece is better than the same piece on another harness. I'm usually not one to encourage not trying before you buy but with the Syndicate harness you absolutely can't go wrong no matter how you get it...
