REI Co-op Traverse 65 Hipbelt - Women's

(1/1)

I'm not into tiny day packs (rather just use my whole pack) and you can't remove the summit pack straps. For someone else this feature might be a plus, but I'd rather they weren't there.

Zipper

REI Co-op Traverse 65 Hipbelt - Women's

(1/1)

However, the interior volume is completely unstructured, without even a sleeping bag divider inside. There is a front J-zipper however, that provides panel style access to the main compartment so you can get gear buried deeply in the pack out without having to completely unpack it. I’m not sure why REI did not include a longer U-shaped zipper for panel access, because that would have made it easier to fully open the front panel, even when the pockets on its exterior are full.A J-Zip provides front panel access to gear buried deep in your backpack

Strap

REI Co-op Traverse 65 Hipbelt - Women's

(1/2)

Shoulder straps are comfortable, well-padded, curved to fit ergonomically and is covered with a breathable mesh material. Similar mesh back panel allowed for good ventilaton. There is a small whistle on the sternum strap that I've come to love on almost every pack I've ever owned. Hip belt distributed the weight comfortably
