Thanks for posting the pic's, I should have my large Ohm by late next week?
I bought a MLD Arc last year, but have yet to use it. Then when I saw the Ohm, with its hooped frame, hip-belt, and shoulder strap load lifter straps, I knew it would carry very well in comparison to it relatively light weight.
I''m guessing it will probably carry a load better than most packs of comparable weight.
I have a 36" waist, so I should be good with the fit of the hip-belt.
I bought the large, because I have a large Circuit, which fits me well, so I figured the large Ohm would be a good fit too.
Casey at ULA, mentioned that the hip-belt is padded at 31". It would add extra weight, but......a hip-belt could be designed with a 2nd set of slider/adjuster buckles, back from the front buckles to accommodate smaller hips, and for dealing with long distance hikes and weight loss.
