      Absolutely Fantastic

      This is my second Aarn pack. I have the Featherlight Freedom as well, which I use for multi day trips. I bought the Natural Exhilaration for longer single day walks or overnight trips. The harness system with its independent movement from the pack is absolutely fantastic. The wide hip belt with two adjustment straps allows for quick adjustments to get the perfect fit as clothing layers change throughout a day. With a 15kg load factor, I would highly recommend this pack for anyone wanting to carry a bit of weight. It's brilliant!

      Used this pack with Fishing Balance pockets on recent Camino Portuguese-very comfortable for regular daily use and pockets were great for easy access to documents, camera etc Will definitely be using this pack on my next trek.

      Love this pack

      I have owned this pack for a couple of years now and use it with 10lt sports balance pockets. I can manage a 5 day trip with it, it can be tight but worth keeping weight down. My husband was with me last overnighter and we swapped packs for the last half of the day - he loved it as much as me we came home and brought him the same pack and pockets. Fits my back so well honestly feels like I don't have a pack on.
