Great Pack so far..
Really like this pack for longer unsupported runs. I have two issues with the gear. First issue, I got the trekking pole hardware version (basically two bungee/plastic clip included) of the pack. I could not use them to secure two poles to one side of the pack because they would be too heavy and imbalance the pack and the cords are way to short to fit around both poles. Ok, so lets move one clip to each side. They fit around each pole fine enough, but now you have one secure point trying to hold a pole that is a foot and a half long. They basically flop everywhere. I ended up stuffing the ends into the outer pocket and securing the top of the pole which at least somewhat held them. After goofing around run after run, my solution is to come back and buy another set of trekking clips for $10. Long story short, for the cost of the pole upgrade, the pack should come standard with 4 clips to secure the poles at the top and bottom of the pack on the left and right.
The other minor deal is when running minus the bladder or anything in the back, it flops around quite a bit. There is a vertical cinching strap down the middle of the pack, but having another outer horizontal strap going across the middle of the pack could cinch it that much more so there would be no bounce or movement.
Other than those minor gripes, love the pack and all the other stuff from OM. Keep on innovating!
