Dirtbag Dreams

I loved this pack, to the chagrin of the rest of my pack fleet. Somehow, despite having a bunch of other packs that I am familiar with and like, this one has become my go-to. I tend to consider myself somewhat of a skeptical grader, but I confidently give the Ortovox Peak Light 32 five stars.
