User Review: REI Men's Venturi 40 Pack
Design: internal toploader
Number of Pockets: 6+ main
Max. Load Carried: 30
Height of Owner: 6'6
Price Paid: $129
Plenty of space for long technical day hikes, where specialty gear is necessary, or for a UL weekend. The design of the pockets makes accessing gear at the spur of the moment a breeze!
The back panel is super comfortable compared to a traditional straight panel. but for all of the comfort some stability is sacrificed, as I found on a few very technical scrambles last weekend. Also, I don't think there are enough strap down points on the outside to really secure a bigger load.
But keep the weight under 25lbs and this has to be one of the best packs on the market! Highly recommended!
