I hope this is the right forum for this.
I am so happy right now! Today my new Fishpond pack was delivered. It is awesome!!!
I purchased the Shooting Star system. It has a backpack and a chest pack and both have plenty of room. I was really hesitant to spend $180 on a pack, but found it on sale for around $140. I decided to go for it. I am pleased. Being a firefighter and spending many hours on wildland fires, I think I became kind of a pro on backpacks. All to often I would get a pack the stunk so I would have to buy a new one. This pack/chest pack from Fishpond is just like my favorite firefighting pack. It has lots of movement in the arms and chest yet it is not all over the place when moving. Mind you this is just from what I was able to do around the house today. Soon I will go out and get it dirty and will report back to you all.
