User Review: Lowe Alpine Zepton 50
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $95
Awesome comfortable lightweight pack.
- Carries well
- Built very well
- Minimalist but adequate features.
- Hip belt could use a pocket
This pack is very comfortable and carries as well as a full feature pack. It is very lightweight and durable. The lid stretches on the sides and is very easy to cover the top of the main compartment with. Very adjustable waist and shoulder straps.
Compression straps are placed well on the pack and work well. The hydration bladder sleeve is a nice feature, and side pockets fit a 1L Nalgene Wide Mouth soft cantene very well if you take that route like I do. Gear loops and webbing are well placed, and the pole carry setup is very convenient.
My base weight is just under 12 lbs before food and only takes up about half the pack's volume even with my bear boxer contender bear can, so I haven't even come close to the limit of its carry capacity therefore I can't comment on how well it handles a heavy load.
