Quality Product & Service
Friday, 28 April 2017  | 

This product looks to be fantastic quality, even the zip bag it's supplied in. It fits my Lightwave Fastpack 50 beautifully and consumes all but the pole tips of my TarpTent Stratospire 1. Service as always from backpacking light 5 star.
Wot no Skittles Bob!!!!!!

I've not tried the flash pocket yet plus I dont have a exped sack but I can make it fit my crux ak47 no probs,the hooks on the ends of the four elastictcated ties will fit most bits,I reckon I could even sew a few plastic rings without adding any real weight if I had to.ceetainly a good place to stash waterproofs freeing up space in my 47ltrs,a blessing,a good 2 or more litres extra.a good plus is it has a mesh side and a nylon side,so damp proofs get an airing or when raining simply face the pocket about face and you have a good protection from the elements.how long it will last will be in its use,time will tell but it looks very well made to me.

Brilliant...almost. Or is it even better?!
Monday, 23 January 2017  | 

Maybe it's BECAUSE it's EXPED,

your expectations are set so extremely high you just get "a little disappointed"?

If it where another brand with the ambition to be a "universal pocket" to fit any brand, then it would be 5 star hesitation less, but now you expect it to "fit like a glove" to my EXPED Lightning 60. And it doesn't.

But, it's somewhat understandable, because in the land of UL, NOTHING sells even 20 gr overweight anymore.

The problem really is that it feels restricting when packing an empty bag since it's attached with shock chords and "moves all over" during packing.

My next move would be to exchange the bungies to straps in the top and use Dyneema in the bottom, that way it will stay in place, but not tighten after I've taken something out.


K.I.S.S.
Keep It Simple Stupid - The easiest/best solution is to unhook all, or the top, bungies while packing, attach, move on, no problem.

Why do it get 5 stars? Think of the versatility this pocket brings to a lot of UL packs, the material quality is still EXPED-ish and at that price it's the sale of a century!!

I'll buy another one and make this one "Lightning 60 Specific, Mattias edt."...

Conclusion: buy twice without thinking.

It's really useful a great addition, I had candles in mine, then after camping I had the wet tent fly in it, I clips on and off the pack easily, yet there seems no way it would fall off.
