Does anyone have experience with this pack? I'm considering this and the Jam2. I'm concerned the Jam2 wouldn't swallow a bear can; and, while larger, the Odyssey (like the Jam2) does have this compacting system, which could keep it appropriate for shorter (3-day) trips.
Currently, I'm stuck between a big pack (Gregory Shasta) and one whose packbag, given my current (low) level of experience, is a bit small even for, say, 3-day trips. The latter is the Osprey Atmos 35. Great suspension but a little heavy in light of the smallish 2100 cu. in. packbag.
I'm thinking that the Odyssey -- or, as I better figure out this ultralight thing, the Jam2 -- could, for most trips I'm likely to do, substitute for and improve upon the Shasta and the Atmos.
But I know: Experience first, change packs last! :-) I'll follow that course, but thought I'd get folks' input. It will help as I move forward and weigh options.
Many thanks for whatever thoughts you may have.
All the best,
