    I wonder if that's ingress or soggy gear dripping a bit inside.

    Mine doesn't have any holes but then I've not had an issue with water pooling.

    here's a good review on the 35L with follow up article


    this was the guy that discovered Tom's measurements were out volume-wise & has apparently he's since changed them.
    so if you're evaluating your needs with a friends pre-summer 2020 pack it's probably smaller than they will be now.

    in my experience vx21 doesn't really outperform vx7 in any meaningful real world way and the sooner they drop the X pattern the better (don't hold your breath as it seems to be a marketing thing)
    if you do want the vx21 outer fabric but not the weight.. x21rc is the same weight as vx07 but i'm not sure Atom stock that (lots of other bag companies do though).
    woven dyneema is the dream product for me.

    I just ordered my first Atompack (and first real ultralight pack). Retail therapy works.
