I rememeber this one...thought it was a good idea, at first, but later gave it some thought.



  This guy is really packing it in, he is going to give MountainDocDanny a run for his reputation.

Stay thirsty, my friends.

"Didn't we have this discussion already?"  :eusa_think:

It actually appears to be an improvement over the Dixon roller pack, the handles in addition to the hip belt would add some control, a suspension to ease the bumps, and a disk brake for going down hill. I think a quick release mechanism/buckle would be desirable at the front of the hip belt.
 I'm not sure if its a good idea, but it seems to be an improvement over the rollerpack.

It's expensive (by my standards) 755 euros = 989.2765 US dollars.  :eusa_hand:
