Reviewers like these things about the Exped Summit

  • Reviewers thought that the Exped Summit pack is surprisingly comfortable, even when it’s full, with nicely padded shoulder straps and auxiliary bands that buckle around the chest and hips to keep the pack in place.

  • Users noted that the bag is water repellant.
  • They also noted that it is amazingly light.

  • Other users noted that the bag features two daisy chains run the length of the pack for lashing extra gear to.
  • Testers found that stowing the whole thing back inside the lid is easy enough although most people will probably just bundle it away somewhere convenient when not in use.

  • Another reviewer noted that it has no compression straps to hold the load in place. Thus it swings around when moving.
