    Very nice packs. The Prospector looks interesting, framed VX21 at less than 700 grams.

    Not bad pricing, and no customs charges.

    I haven't got any rucksack problems and I also want it. A lot.

    Looks nice, pallante bottom pocket and interesting to see the top strap buckle moved to top of back panel rather than above the front mesh pocket. The x PAC looks cool in black.

    As long as the buckle stays of your back I guess it’s a good idea.

    I didn't know you had rucksack problems. Thought you had a Prohet... ;)

    Kind of want the Atom, not as practical as the Prospector but so cute. Can someone give me a load of money so I can go on a spending spree please? :D :bear:

    The stretchy pocket on the bottom of the Prospector is just plain daft.

    I don't need a new pack so why do i keep looking at this thread...?

    Because packs are addictive. :D

    I agree; why us VX21 then put mesh over it?

    Perhaps because there are no hip belt pockets? I find a palante pocket useful on my beltless packs.

    But since there is a hip belt, why not put the pockets there where they'll be much less vulnerable to abrasion?

    I'm curious: what exactly do you put there that is compatible with putting the pack down on wet, muddy ground or dry rocky ground?

    Honest question, no trolling here. ;)

    Yes me too...bit of a fad/fashion maybe; unless you are into FKT and the ilk?

    I think the idea is that you don't put it down, at least during the day, because you hike 24/7. Not that applicable to the UK necessarily...

    So it's a food bag for on-the-go hand-to-mouth feeding. That explains the Snicker bar. ;)

    I asked the very same question about the Palante packs ………. :rolleyes:

    I can see that with the Palante Simple, less so with the Atom Prospector.
