Comments about Bergans of Norway Skarstind 40 Pack:
-I have an older REI Polar Pod synthetic long sleeping bag. Its listed stuff sack volume is 26.5 liters and its stuff sack size is 11X17. Compressed with a Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil compression sack, size L, I am able to fit it, with some effort, in the sleeping bag compartment. Given that my sleeping bag is both the long version and synthetic and on the extreme end of size, I can't foresee any situation where a sleeping bag wouldn't fit in through the compartment at the bottom. Should be easy and convenient for just about every bag. Smaller to medium bags should fit in with ease.
-I've taken it out in some heavy storms with record rainfall and hard-driving, pouring rain. Contents managed to stay dry. It isn't waterproof, but the pack does a good job protecting things from the rain.
-The pack has just one main chamber. This makes it easier to pack and unpack. Separate major compartments not only reduce space, but cause more work switching between different compartments. I can more easily load and unload things from one main area, rather than zipping and unzipping from two to three different chambers, which wastes time. I just pull open the drawstring, empty the pack, and I'm done. No tedious zippers, and space is also maximized.
-Highly adjustable. I have had to loosen straps so sensitive electronics wouldn't be crushed from the pack being too tight. There are a wide variety of ways to adjust the pack to one's liking.
-Sleek Nordic design for the minimalist who wants to cut down on a bulky look.
