The supremely ventilated featured and durable Stratos Series receives a makeover that is more than skin deep for Spring 2017. Now featuring adjustable torso lengths for improved fit and comfort with updated aesthetics the Stratos 34 is the go-to choice for those who prefer panel-loading organization on everything from short day hikes to lightweight overnights in the backcountry no matter how far or near. When the weather turns fear not - Stratos keeps your gear and pack protected with an integrated raincover. Smartly organized pocketing keeps all your equipment where you need it when you need.
AIRSPEED SUSPENSION Incredibly comfortable and ventilated tensioned mesh backpanel with added adjustability for variations in torso length to provide fine-tuned customization fit for every hiker and backpacker.
SEAMLESS HIPBELT INTERFACE Users can't feel seams that don't exist and because there aren't any on the Stratos/Sirrus updated hipbelt hikers can focus on the journey instead of the pack on your back.
INTEGRATED RAINCOVER Hope for bluebird weather but know you're covered with our integrated and removable raincover that stows in its own pocket when the sun returns.

This is a very well thought out pack for the most part that is very comfortable. However, I have 3 issues that have cropped up over a few months of weekend day hiking 6-10 miles at a time with about 18lbs loaded. 1. When the load lifters are tightened and you are moving, the back panel is very noisy. 2. the small strap the holds the shoulder strap to the waist belt is fraying and coming off already. 3. The should strap tighteners do not keep their position well. I have to re-tighten often. I will need to modify the straps now...
