Finally, to give you some idea as to the size of the main pack, this is holding it up right and touching the measuring tape to its bottom. Generally speaking, the ratio of the volume and bearing weight is 1: Simply lay the pack down with these handles facing up.


Below 2nd pic you can see how one of these packs are included for easy drinking while on long hikes. We can see the metal bar of the pack which was designed and installed between bottom pocket cabin and the top of the pack after opening the pack.

This allows you to separate the compartment into a couple sections. Pic is taken of the top lip at the drawstring. They are one of my favorite pack systems and I think ikbe might highlight some of the reasons why.
