User Review: The North Face Angstrom 30
Height of Owner: 5'8'
Price Paid: $89
I have been looking for a day pack that keeps most, if not all, of the weight on my hips while keeping the load close to my spine. I have shoulder problems and the Angstrom 30 is very comfortable. This pack spreads the load from the neck to the hips without bulging out as many packs do, which are nothing more than book bags.
The two water bottle pockets are nice. The included rain cover is a real nice addition, and it fits nicely over the pack. The zippered pocket for the rain cover could be used for something else. I do trail maintenance and the pack easily accommodates my 18" hand saw and short handled loppers.
This is the day pack that I have been looking for.
