Ty Webb Please Read - Re: OWNER REVIEW - Inov-8 Race 22 Pro Pack -
- 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.

- Hello Ty,
Welcome to BackpackGearTest and thank you for your Owner Review, your initial edits will follow (below). They will take the following format;
EDIT: must be changed
Edit: should be changed but will be left to your discretion
Comment: just that or something to think about
When you have made the changes please repost here with REPOST added to the subject line. Put a revised HTML version in the Owner Review Test Folder also please.
Some very helpful information may be found here;
Please notice the form that the review should take in the "Examples", you may also wish to browse the reviews of other experienced members for examples of the proper form.
A helpful tool is the Mentoring Program that teams new reviewers with experienced veterans to help get them through their first review(s). If you'd like more assistance or guidance with the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to the mentor coordinator, Jenn, at mentor@...
***Height: 5 feet 7 inches
EDIT: you need Metric (or Imperial) conversions for all measurements, weights, distances, etc. Please go through the entire review as they are almost all missing.
***City, State, Country: Grand Junction, CO, USA
EDIT: please spell out the state for the benefit of our international readers
EDIT: "color" is the way that Americans spell it. (I know you took it from the web site.)
*** It has even a snow storm or two.
EDIT: it has what, even a snow storm? Been used in one, survived one, been lost in one ? ;-)
*** Overall I would estimate that I used the Race Pro Pack on over 30 day hikes.
Edit: to be proper this should be 30 day-hikes. (Or was it used over 30-day hikes? That would be a long time for a 22 L pack, huh?)
***This system has the hydration bladder located horizontally around the lumbar inside the waistbelt of the pack
EDIT: waist belt
***A foam pad that rests against the wearer's back offers support and can removed by a velcro sealed slot
EDIT: Velcro is a trademarked name and is thus capitalized. But unless you know that it is Velcro you should just call it "hook-and-loop" . So, "and can removed by way of a slot with a hook-and-loop closure".
*** The lid is not detachable but does latches to the pack
EDIT: but does "latch"
*** The packs is very adjustable with the fit
EDIT: The "pack"
