    Default Paradox packs

    Howdy, have any of you had any experience with Paradox packs? Look like another entry into the external frame modular pack design market. I like the idea of an external frame with a load shelf option, and wonder if anyone has had a chance to check these out. Any comparisons to kuiu, tenzing, etc?

    Lanche, what are your thoughts? Looks like a pretty nifty system, light and very adjustable. That day pack talon looks like a good idea, too.

    I would take a hard look at Stone Glacier packs..... my buddies and I packed out Moose, Bear, Sheep, Bou, and goats with Stone Glacier packs this year....they work very well!

    Having used both I would agree with that 100%

    I am going to wait for the multiple pack testing review to be published in december on 24HCF before deciding on either of these packs.

    I need one that puts as little pressure on the lumbar as possible. It sounds like SG can provide that with removal of the pad or a real thin pad. With paradox being an old school belt system like the Barney's or camp trails that may be more pleasant on my back. Sucks getting old.

    Osprey makes some good stuff. Ergonomic, and comfortable, but no external frame options that I know of. That being said they have all kinds of attachment points and accessories that you can put on them. I use an 85 litre for long trips. You could pack out just about anything with that, and probably overpack it to the point it would be hard for a guy my size to manage.

    Just a thought. Good luck with your purchase.

    Ramhunter and Lanche, thanks for that info. I was just about to press Buy on Schnee's when I saw mention of the Paradox packs in another forum. Good to know the SG perform well here in AK.
