      ### 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.
