wow i am impressed. generally ive been messing around with low end packs, and i picked this up for 30 bucks. was expecting a decent pack but this is awsome.
built ford tuff. i mean this thing is good. double velcro like the high end packs, pod edjections, back padding. its got really high end features in this thing. very thick material, easily will last for YEARS. the 2 extra outside flaps are pretty tough/sturdy as well.
i got urban camo. thought it would look ok, WAY better in person. i am very happy with it. the invert I symbol is on each pod strap and it looks very nice.
with teh back padding it is very comfy back there. teh doubel strap keeps it very snug and sturdy, thing is isnt moving at all on you. my last pack(mantis) had a single strap. VERY comfy, alwoed easier movement and breathing, but teh pack would move/jiggle while fast running. for me a front/snake player i want security that A its not going anywhere, and B the pods are snug. the edjection both holds them in place, and helps removal. the mantis had no cover/support, so if teh pods slide up too high, there was room for the pod to open. with covered packs like NXE etc and this one, it cant happen.
the double strap is small/thin. i used my freinds redz which has a HUGE strap. this whole pack is very petite. great for all you little guys.
NOTE: invert makes 2 cheaper packs. this is the 08 model, NOT the other, cheaper, less good one. but if you wanta cheap pack, actionvillage sells the older one for 25 bucks with 4 free pods.
For 30 bucks i dont see how it gets better. i am blown away. i definitely think higher of invert because of this. this pack has features of high end packs but for 30 bucks. of course i would rather have a 80 dollar nxe etc, but if you dont feel like spending the cash its not going to get better if you want a cheaper pack.
