Re: Re: Flight 40
I'm loving the Flight 40. It doesn't take much to dial it in just perfect. Once you do, you can unclip the hip-belt and it still holds the gear on the shoulders so nicely. You can a...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Fusion 65 for Blaze?
I love the Flight 40. I've only loaded it up for a short hike once, but have loaded it up to what my max weight will be a few times just to try it out. My max weight I'll ever have in t...
