Thank you Gail S - Re: OR - GoLite Pinnacle Backpack -
- 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
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.

- EDIT: GoLite Pinnacle Pack OR Gail Staisil
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:
1 lb 8 oz (0.68 kg)
### Edit: Please add the manufacturer's stated weight, which appears
available on the website.
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
according to the manufacturer. The Pinnacle is the largest pack of
with a capacity of 3700 cu in (61 L) for a Women's size Medium (17.5
to 19.5 in/50 cm torso). Some of its features include a zippered
pocket, two side stretch pockets, two side compression straps and the
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
different trips totally 185 mi (298 km).
### EDIT: "totally" should be "totaling" instead.
Drinking tube ports are located on the backside above each shoulder
### 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
pack is really amazing to have so many features in a lightweight
### 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
According to the manufacturer, the pack is best cared for my using a
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.
