It was looking shaky for a minute, but the new LIM 45 pack has arrived in time for the WHW. I’ve been using OMM packs almost exclusively for a couple of years and the thought of getting to grips with something so completely different is a little daunting.
We saw a pre production model last year and it left us with a finger to pursed lips, what would this be like in use?
It’s a roll top closure, the hipbelt is low profile and unexpectedly shaped with an ingenius buckling system, it’s got four pockets that are accessible on the move, a huge external stretch pocket, clever compression, a nice simple length adjustable back system and lots of wee quirks, or should I say attentions to detail.
The main compartment is devoid of features, it’s just a simple tube, the bladder sleeve having an external pocket. This I like: faffless easy packing. I’ve had a couple of quick excursions with it filled to the gunnels and it’s looking good. I’ll doing a 30 miler in the next couple of days with my WHW kit in it, and I’m not worried at all.
Different, aye. But refereshingly so.
