Size

REI Co-op Flash 18 Print Pack

(1/1)

I should also mention I'm bigger than most people, 6'3, 190 lbs, and this fits great.

Commute

REI Co-op Flash 18 Print Pack

(1/1)

I use this pack for commuting by bike. I had last year's and had to exchange it because the Velcro that held the back pad in just fell apart and every time I reached in my hand went back to no hands land. They fixed that with this one, and added an even easier (!) drawstring top, outside pocket, and two inner slip pockets. It's such a great size and is so lightweight

Compartment

REI Co-op Flash 18 Print Pack

(1/1)

We like it as it is light, for the dimensions, for the comfort as it is renforced in the back and for his inside pocket with a zip . The zip pocket is well placed because when you carry your backpack on your back, you can carry your day pack in the front and have easy acces to your keys or money in the zip pocket.

Strap

REI Co-op Flash 18 Print Pack

(1/1)

Also there is a reinforcement patch at the top of each shoulder strap which helps spread the seam pressure, but the lack of any reinforcing narrow strap from top to bottom of each strap (found on competitors) means the seam bindings on the edges of the shoulder straps are doing the heavy lifting, since the mesh in the center of the straps is comfortable but not strong.
