Hi Roger, I enjoyed reading your blog and your review of the mountain magic 55. It was great to finally see an action photo of the pack. I do know what you mean about the annoyance of the attachment to the top strap as the current aarn pack i own has the same issue. I was planning about maybe putting a cable tie or thick rubber band to keep it up, but havent yet tested this.

Thanks Jeremy

The elastics are only really an issue if you overload the pockets (as I did) reducing the weight in the pockets improves the carry, though perhaps an overide "cable tie" to limit the stretch maybe useful. For trips of less than 5 days I do not see the elastics as a problem.
