User Review: REI Men's Flash 50 Pack
I have had the Flash 50 for a little over a year now. Honestly, I have no big complaints with the pack's performance. The size is perfect. You think you will overpack it, but are pleasantly surprised to have plenty of spare room at the spacious top.
I am normally pretty rough on gear and the flash has held up extremely well. I can't say enough about the snug fit. I have loaded the thing several different ways and weights, and always the pack successfully positions the balanced load on my lower back and hips perfectly. The adjustability is great.
As with any pack, it's essential to get an appropriate sizing to your torso. I purchased the medium, having close to a 19 in. torso, and sometimes regret not opting to the large.
Overall, an awesome and dependable pack that has not let me down yet. I will definitely be purchasing additional REI packs and equipment in the future.
