The Lightning has always been a very popular pack. Simple design, minimal features, low weight and a capacious volume.
The 2020 version is in short supply due to the updated features which are proving equally popular. It still keeps the simple roll top access and numerous compressions straps. However they have upgraded the lumbar support and strengthend the aluminium frame which will make it more comfortable as a long distance load lugger.
Once again the KISS principle is working well and as good as the previous version is, this will add just that little bit more to your outdoor enjoyment.
For those who like a large external front pocket, don't forget the Exped Flash Pocket accessory is designed to clip onto this pack.
