Pockets proliferate on the Airzone Pro+ 35:45, appearing on the inside and outside of the lid, on both sides of the waist belt, on the sides of the pack and inside the main compartment, the ideal location for your water bladder.
Access to the main compartment is in the conventional manner thru the lid and storm baffle, but can also be achieved thru a side zip that allows you to pull out stuff from the base of the pack without seeing everything above it spill out onto muddy ground. It also means you can more easily get at stuff without putting the pack down.
A waterproof cover is located in yet another zipped compartment at the base of the pack. Attached into the pocket by velcro so it won't fall out accidently it can be fully removed and used independantly as a dry layer to sit on, or as an emergency signalling flag thanks to its bright orange colour. The cover has an elasticated adjustable drawcord, that allows you to draw it tight around the bag no matter how full or empty it maybe. This is especially useful in windy conditions where other covers might be whipped off creating a real nuisance and nolonger perform their job.
The back system boasts a variable length that can be simply adjusted in moments by flipping up the Centro buckle cover on the back of the pack and moving the webbing thru the buckle, effectively raising or lowering the shoulder harness.
The 35 to 45 litre variable volume is achieved by the extending of straps at both the front and back of the 'floating' lid of the pack. This gives it a capacity greater than your average daysack, making it ideal if you're carrying for your partner or kids as well as yourself. It's also a good size for an overnight bivi.
A bungee spider plate is large enough to attach a bed roll or quickly stash a waterproof you want to shed when the sun breaks thru the clouds.
