Two uses for the lumbar pack for me.......well, this is what i'm 'hoping' it will be like
Hunting, i hunt on foot using night vision most of the time. I like to take a flask and polish poncho when its cold. Rucksacks are a little restrictive at times and wont to catch on branches and stuff.
Hopefully this will ride out of the way and maybe even allow me to reach into the main compartment without taking it off
Hiking, more ventilation and freedom of movement. Plus i'v been meaning to get a smaller pack for ages, my 35ltr daysacks are just too much bother for a day walk. Large, giving me a sweaty back, and again just a bit more cumbersome than required for the job
Theres also a little challenge and reward in using such a small pack for overnighters
Nice pack sunndog. good choice.
