Re: REI Flash 62
My husband and I switched from our old, heavy packs for the Flash 62 (for him) and the Flash 52 (for me) last year and we both loved them. Carrying 9 days of supplies for the High Sierra Trail was easy and we both appreciated the entries to the pack and the pocket set up, especially the expandable outer pocket. They were comfortable and we didn't have any complaints. We're trying to go lighter but I'm not quite to my ideal yet & we carried about the same amount of weight: about 22 lbs base weight and 30 lbs fully loaded with food and water. I wrote a short article with a photo of me carrying the pack. http://voices.yahoo.com/the-journey-ultralight-backpacking-11731500.html?cat=11 Good luck. ~Inga

Can anyone give their thoughts on the new Flash 62 from REI? I haven't heard much talk about it, but it is on my list of considerations or a new pack. My wallet would be especially happy with this one...
