REI Flash 22 Pack
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $40
Lightweight day pack, with side water bottle holders.
- Removable back pad
- Padded straps
- The inside top cinch was a cooler design in the older
- Flash 18 model. (Miss it!)
This pack has light padding in the shoulder straps (perforated to breath better) a top zipper pouch with a key tether.
It also has inside back panel sleave that holds a removable sit pad and keeps items from poking you in the back, a inside mesh zippered pocket and a series of daisy chain loops sewn on the outside. It is hydration compatable, but I prefer water bottles, and it has the two mesh outside side pockets for this, one buckle has a emergency whistle built in to it.
