Reading Marian’s review of The North Face Patrol 34 Pack really struck a cord with me; I too have spent years trying to use a few backpacks for many purposes. I’ve always had one backpack for trail running and mountain biking and another pack for everything else (rock climbing, alpine climbing, hiking, ski touring). I’ve generally found that the smaller backpack was a good size for running, but too small for most mountain bike rides. Similarly, my larger pack was great for gear intensive pursuits such as rock climbing, but really was too large for most day hikes. Enter Camelbak’s L.U.X.E 2012.
