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.

Awesome service as always, item looks well made and ideal for added storage of a tarp or rain gear to the front of my hiking pack, time will tell but first impressions are very good.

Great Idea.
Monday, 21 December 2015  | 

I bought this to add an extra external pocket to my Osprey Kestrel 48 & 68 rucksacks. Bit of fiddling about tying some loops onto the rucksack but easy job. Big enough to store wet tarp or clothes.Minimal weight & great value.

Neat stash pocket
Friday, 16 October 2015  | 

This adds a handy stash pocket to my Lightning 60 (also bought from BackpackingLight). Easy to attach to the sack and saves faffing around with the compression cords (which are under tension if properly done up). This just makes it easier getting to your jacket and jumper quickly. Negligible weight difference. Good for the money I'd say.
