    I have both, and I have to say that I much prefer the halcyon to the ballistic. I think the halcyon material sets the backpack more apart from other bags out there, and although I love the feel of...

    I received the SN30 on Friday, and today I got to try it out on a short hike for the first time. It felt really good on my back, and the straps really are excellent. I had it loaded up quite a bit...

    I agree. Honestly, even though the first photos were less than ideal, the color was not that far off how I perceived it last night. The sunlight changes it much more than I expected.

    Thanks, @G42 and @melminimalist. It’s more of a dark/deep blue, so it’s probably original nordic then, although it is not as vibrant a blue as the one in @pammy’s post. Maybe it looks like that in...

    What color is this Smart Alec?

    I picked up a used Smart Alec, and I am wondering what color it is. Iím afraid the pictures arenít a great representation, but is this Nordic, or was it perhaps made in another shade of blue?

    The slash pocket’s funcionality in the GR1 can be improved by adding an O-ring inside and using TB keystraps and pouches to get to stuff, but it is still pretty bad.

    To me it is not that I constantly need full access to the main pocket, in fact I rarely open it up all the way, but that the times that I do need it, I have it. If I am packing so much stuff that it...

    I suppose you're asking natemic, but here is my reason: I had looked at the Evergoods a while back, but it didn't appeal to me at all. Too similar to the GR1, and I don't want a smaller pack. I'm not...

    Great review. I’m coming from the Goruck GR1 as well, so that was a particularly interesting perspective for me. The Synik tics all my boxes, and I can’t wait to get it. Thanks!

    Another question about the straps (sorry if you have already adressed this): how wide are they at the widest point? I am hoping the Synik can replace my Goruck, and the thick and wide straps on it...

    Thanks! I can’t take too much credit, since most of these are ideas I’ve picked up from the forum.

    I paid $75, which is a not bad for this kind of work in Norway, where I live.
