for once, i purchased a birthday gift for myself that was actually affordable!
in the ever-increasing costs of equipment, the $29 rei flash 18 bag catches my attention.
my first impressions?... i am immediately impressed by what i got for $29!
two particular thoughts...
because the shoulder straps sit far apart, the sternum strap is very long. therefore, when not used, it is very awkward.
and, the belt seems to be very unnecessary. and when not used, it too is awkward.
what have other owners done about these strange and possibly unnecessary straps?
