    I looked through every pocket and was kind of confused...

    Does it REALLY come with a whistle? Where is it?

    And I thought it came with some sort of water/camelback type of thing, but did not see that or the tube (which I figured must be purchased separately?)_.... what am I missing here.

    The whistle is part of the buckle on the chest strap. I didn't even know it was there until someone posted about it on here.

    I'm with you on the camelback thing though, not sure how that works. It looks like there is an opening on the back at the top where a tube could fit through.


    can only imagine the scenes across the world with people blowing this backpack in the wrong spot

    hahahaha

    Hehe^

    I'm not convinced there is a camelback place. I think that little hole at the top is for headphones to go through and you can have your ipod in the little zip pocket at the top.

    From what I remember reading, the place for the camel pack to go is the pocket the laptop fits in, you can use it for either, and the hole near the top is for the tube. They never said the camel pack was provided with it.

    And most of these fools will be framing the backpack and hanging it off a wall, never to be used.

    Or, being that youse are Americans, I assume youse aren't particularly good travellers, or get fuck all annual leave from work, so you just end up taking it to work. ;)

    How much does it hold anyway? I was vaguely interested, but anything less than 65litres would be useless as a backpack to last through a 3-4 week tour. Just can't trust something that's available for 80 bucks. It's like shopping at fucking Kathmandu. Besides... Patagonia? It's a clothing brand. Macpac and One Planet is where it's at. Ospreys is fair, too.

    :P
    115 bucks for half a haircut by a novice? I want my money back!

    my original backpack got waterlogged @ PJ20 on Saturday. I never could get the musty funk out of it. I thought this would be an appropriate replacement.

    I'm totally framing that shit up if it ever shows up. It will be my family heirloom along with the white BS vinyl

    Thanks, I will look for the whistle on the snap/band when I get home. :) Pretty fancy...

    So this thing is really waterproof? That's the feature I'm looking forward to. I was hiking in the rain in Hawaii for a few hours this summer and it was a challenge to keep the camera wrapped up INSIDE the backpack enough to keep it dry... everything got soaked.

    I just saw the same model Pantagonia backpack in another color at a store and now I am kicking myself for not ordering one :cry:. As you can tell by my post count I am obviously on here a lot and I am several hours to ponder over whether I needed one or not. I travel a lot and it would be great to have. I suck lol.

    well for future reference, always remember: when something EXXXCLUSIVE goes on sale in the goods. GET IT!!! If you decide not to use it, some freak up in here will HAPPILY take it off your hands!!! :lol:

    But then I would have been called a flipper :lol:.

    So I have now passed on this backup, Vault #3 vinyl, Sevens, and most other merch the last few years. I guess I am not as big of a fan as I thought :? :lol:.

    I use mine everyday. Not in bad shape, but used. I was so happy to see someone bring a beat up one to Wrigley to carry whatever into the show.

    Makes me sad to see people pay $300 or so for this.

    Reminds me of another thread, collectors rising a price of something people want to use. Not saying it's good or bad, but a back pack in plastic in your closet???

    Its no different than a sealed Benny or one of the studio albums kept sealed and in storage. Some peopl3 collect to build a museum some buy to use the merch. I see and dont mind what people do with the items. As long as they r happy its cool. Life is WAY to short to bug out about things like that. [ im not saying ur bugging out over this]
    Some words when spoken...Can't be taken back...

    Yea a backpack is not worth even the original price to me. Looks great and it got great reviews all around- just out of my budget for an item I could get for much cheaper.
