Okay, so one of the things i like about UL, is how good a simple, streamlined pack looks. Not cluttered with straps, buckles, ditties hanging everywhere, etc.
Hence my peave with most UL packs, all that mesh! I understand that mesh outer pockets make gear access more efficient and save weight. but a guy can look like a walking swap meet with those outer pockets filled.
I seek a day pack thats close to a pound, and does not use mesh outer pockets. The MB Balance Light 20 seems to be a good fit but I cant find any reviews on it. Very clean pack, no outer pockets or anything, but above all a pack has to do it's job well. Does anyone have any experience with this line of packs? Know of another pack I might be interested in?
