Strap

Timbuk2 The Division Pack

(1/10)

TImbuk2 bags are great looking bags and some of them are decent quality. However the one I got is "Storm" and fabric feels too harsh, the straps are not comfortable whatsoever.

REI Co-op Flash 22 Print Pack

(1/1)

Let's talk more about storage and lashing. The Flash 22 has an additional front zipper pocket with a flat profile that's great for keys, maps, or snacks. One set of stashable high and low tool loops grip trekking poles or even a light ice axe when not in use, and additional lashing loops on the sides of the pack make adding compression cord or attaching items (via carabiner or rope) a breeze.

Size

Timbuk2 The Division Pack

(1/7)

The bag seems too tall, and not deep enough (from front to back). I don't carry that much stuff, and I struggle to get it all to fit. The annoying part, is there's plenty of room on top of my stuff. It seems this space should be allocated to make the bag half an inch deeper

REI Co-op Flash 22 Print Pack

(1/1)

And, to be clear, the high star rating is specific to the weight range I list above. If you try to carry 20 pounds in this pack, it will not be comfortable.

Comfort

Timbuk2 The Division Pack

(1/3)

Was able to get this on sale after eyeing it up for a couple weeks and diligent research. This backpack is incredibly comfortable and well built! I’ve taken it to the Caribbean, including beaches, all day treks and the padding on the straps kept it comfortable all day! Will easily fit a 15” laptop in the pocket, and the main pocket has plenty of room for other things such as books or equipment. Is on the smaller size as backpacks go, but that’s what I was looking for.

REI Co-op Flash 22 Print Pack

(1/3)

The back panel has sewn-in foam panels for comfort and breathability, but in a unique design move, there's a removable foam panel that adds support and cushion from rigid items and acts as a sit pad. I removed the pad when backpacking to reduce weight and increase packability, but I was glad to have it on forested day hikes when every surface is wet and not particularly comfortable.
