Cons Stiffer foam geared towards heavier loads and is less "cushy"Tiny buckles hard to operate with glovesNo lid, back-panel lacks ventilationlacks durabillity, not made for heavy loadsPoor support under heavy loads, fixed torso and waist belt
Bottom Line This pack's robust suspension, top-tier ergonomics, and one of our favorite all-around pack designs are geared towards long treks in the backcountryThis super-light pack caries loads like a pro and has just about every feature you could ever wantThis comfortable yet supportive pack has an extremely functional set of features and is one of the lightest in our testThe Features on the Flash 55 are some of the best and most versatile of all the packs in our testThis lightweight pack performs really well unless it gets overloaded with too much weight
