Cilogear is offering 30% of any pack for active/reserve/retired military vets. That 30% off makes the packs very competitive with similarly sized light mountaineering packs. Offer is good for a few more days, until the 4th of June I believe.
I ordered the 45Liter worksack, and I will report back. I have heard many good things about these second generation packs. Frankly I did not decide to order the previous gen. 1; but the issues seem to be addressed now.
