Arete 18

I should start by saying that we have yet to fully test this pack in anger, so these are general observations.
The pack is very lightweight, which is a positive, but feels almost flimsy. I am assuming that, as a Camelbak product, it will prove durable despite this but I do worry about the comfort of the shoulder straps as they appear to have no real padding.
The litre capacity is enough for a basic day hike but you wouldn't want to be taking on anything too involved as there isn't room for much more than a few layers and trail snacks.
The reservoir is a Camelbak so I expect a level of quality and durability but again I worry slight about how well protected this is with the lightweight materials of the pack.
Reversing the pack so it essentially becomes a reservoir holder (insulator?) that can go inside another pack, is really a bit of a nonsense. The resulting holder to too big and bulky and you might as well just put the reservoir in by itself.
Having purchased this for my son to do the Exmoor challenge I wonder how much use it will really be but at least we got a Camelbak reservoir, so OK I guess.
