So I didn’t realize that S.O.TECH had updated its Go Pack from a single, sling strap to its new double-strap design. The new design gives you a choice of carrying it like a backpack with two traditional pack straps or as a single, cross-body sling-style strap.
I’ve never really cared for sling-bag style bags. To me, backpack straps just make more sense. The padded, contoured single/double shoulder strap features a side locking buckle for joining the two straps into one.
The Go Pack looks like a great pack for carrying a hydration bladder (not included) and a ton of gear. I like packs with a lot of pockets.
It’s made from 1000 Denier Cordura , weighs 2.6 pounds and holds 1,482 cubic inches of gear.
The internal main compartment is 20.75 inches x 5.5 inches x 6 inches and holds 702 cubic inches. The small upper center pocket is 6 inches x 5 inches x 3.5 inches and holds 105 cubic inches.
I have more packs and bags than I know what to do with, but I kinda want one of these. The redesigned Go Pack comes in MultiCam, coyote brown or black and retails for $170. What do you guys think -- too much?
