      PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL IN FULL. IT IS MOST IMPORTANT!

      Thanks for your Owner's Review. It has been added to the Owner
      Review Queue and will be picked up by an Edit Moderator soon. If you
      are new to BackpackGearTest.org, welcome to the community! The
      Editors will work with you, within their own time constraints, to
      get your first two Owner Reviews approved and upload in a timely
      manner. Do not worry if nothing happens with it for several days.
      All our Editors are volunteers and your report will be subject to an
      official edit within fourteen days. If you have not had a response
      from an Edit Moderator via the Yahoo Groups list within this
      timeframe, please let me know directly at jdeben(at)hotmail.com

      To assist in this process, if this is your first Owner Review we ask
      that you post only ONE Owner Review for edit at a time. Our
      experience is that it is more efficient for both the Editors and
      yourself, if you post your first review, have it edited, approved
      and uploaded before you post your second and subsequent reviews.

      Once your first two Owner Reviews have been approved and you have
      submitted your Tester Agreement you will be eligible to start
      applying for Tests. If you'd like more assistance or guidance with
      the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to Jenn K.,
      the mentor coordinator, at mentor (at) backpackgeartest.org.

      You may receive edits or comments from other members of the group.
      These edits and comments, while not official, should be considered
      carefully, and if you find them substantial, revise and re-post your
      review. Incorporating member edits and re-submitting to the list
      will usually result in a better review, as well as making things
      easier for the official Editor. Please put REVISED in the subject
      line of your re-submitted review if you take this route or make any
      changes to your review BEFORE the review has been taken by an Edit
      Moderator.

      Additionally, it is important for you to monitor the Yahoo Groups
      list to keep track of the progress of your Owner Review. Once an
      Editor has taken your OR and made the necessary edits they will post
      their comments to the list with EDIT in the subject line. Once you
      have incorporated these edits into your review please use REPOST in
      the subject line. When your OR has been approved by the Editor they
      will use APPROVED in the subject line.

      If you'd like to keep track of the progress of your OR while it's in
      the edit queue, the entire Owner Review Queue is posted to this
      yahoo group list on either Thursdays or Fridays.

      If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask via
      the list or contact me directly.

      Regards

        EDIT: GoLite Pinnacle Pack OR – Gail Staisil

        Hi Gail,

        Excellent detailed report as always. I have just a few Edits and a
        couple of comments for you. When you've made the changes to your
        satisfaction, please upload to the folder at:

        ******************************


        Actual Weight
        1 lb 8 oz (0.68 kg)

        ### Edit: Please add the manufacturer's stated weight, which appears
        available on the website.

        Product Description

        The Pinnacle Backpack is one of many packs manufactured by GoLite. It
        is one of
        three backpacks in their Ultra Series, the "packs for ultralite
        purists"
        according to the manufacturer. The Pinnacle is the largest pack of
        that series
        with a capacity of 3700 cu in (61 L) for a Women's size Medium (17.5
        in/44.5 cm
        to 19.5 in/50 cm torso). Some of its features include a zippered
        large front
        pocket, two side stretch pockets, two side compression straps and the
        ComPACKtor
        System for reducing the volume of the pack.

        ### Comment: You might let us know in this section that this is
        a `frameless' pack.


        The pack has already been used for a total of 18 days of backpacking
        on four
        different trips totally 185 mi (298 km).

        ### EDIT: "totally" should be "totaling" instead.

        Drinking tube ports are located on the backside above each shoulder
        strap.

        ### Comment: You might give us an idea of the size of the ports.


        Other features included ice axe loops with elastic cords and a haul
        loop. This
        pack is really amazing to have so many features in a lightweight
        package.

        ### Comment: You might include a few more details about the ice axe
        loops and haul loop (thickness, length, etc.) and whether you've
        found them adequate/useful.

        However, this is a minor issue is the realm of things.

        ### EDIT: …a minor issue *in* the realm…


        Care/Durability

        According to the manufacturer, the pack is best cared for my using a
        mild soap
        and a damp sponge to wipe the outside and inside of the pack.

        ### EDIT: …best cared for *by* using a mild soap…

        It's super comfort, support, versatility, volume, and its
        light weight are some of its best merits.

        ### EDIT: In this use, leave the apostrophe out of the word "Its" at
        the start of the sentence.
