Comments about Mountainsmith Tour Recycled Waistpack - 2011 Closeout:
This pack is pretty awesome. Has top handles (2) and a shoulder strap for versatile carrying. Has bottom loop straps (I use to hold a sit pad). Plenty of straps for tightening the pack so it sits close to you. Two water bottle holders on either side, with a strap to hold it close to the pack and also a bungie strap just below it to hold it in as well (the upper strap pulls the pack in in general to keep the pack tight). Also has a bunch of loops everywhere that I find great for carabiners.There are only a con or two that I don't like about it, mainly that it doesn't sit entirely well on the hips and that I usually need to utilize the shoulder strap in some way to take the pressure off my waist (which puts added strain to one of my shoulders*; I guess strain is bound to happen somehow). I've also tried putting the shoulder strap just above my waist (around my stomach) and that actually isn't too bad. I guess I would say that the pack sits ok at the waist, just not the upper portion of the pack (feels less stable and not tight against you). My personal experience to avoid the majority of discomfort is not to eat before going on a hike with this pack.*I will add that I usually have my camera bag sitting on the other shoulder (but also clipped to my belt) whenever I hike, which can agitate any strain. Figured it should be noted.Regardless, I love this pack and it's definitely worth it for [@].
