Hi y'all!

I picked up one of these sweet Burghaus Freeflow 40L packs from Mountain Designs yesterday for half price! I have an Osprey Kestrel 38L however on my last Camino I lost so much weight I was too thin for the waist straps, so I was carrying all my weight on my shoulders! And that was a Small sized pack! The Berghaus has a lot more room to tighten and keep the weight on my hips so it's perfect. The guy at the store said someone else had told him the same thing happened to them so I guess I'm not alone in this department. Anyways, here is the link to check out and grab a bargain:

Thanks for that. Have bee struggling to find a backpack for my son (a child - so most are too long) - but think I may have found one at Mountain Design, looking at their website. Not the one you linked - but your link helped!
