The thing I like best about the 20 is that it rides high, off my lumbar. Does the 35 ride as high up as the 20? Or is it more of a traditional hiking pack fit that rides low on the back, resting on the sacrum? I have back issues that make it extremely uncomfortable sometimes to have a pack pressing against my sacrum unless it does it just right. Thank you!

So the price goes up depending on the color?

You could look at it that way, but they also increase in volume 😉
Would this be good for spring skiing? How waterproof is it?
I have the old 20L model, the harness make it very comfortable to wear, but when loaded for 3-4 days hike and the weight is closing in on 10 kg (or over 20 lbs for those who haven't adapted the measurements of the civilized world) I really wish I had a bigger bag and a hipbelt.
Seeing this massdrop it was a no-brainer to add a 45L to my connection of backpacks.

Collection, not connection. Auto correct...
Like the UD45. but exchange rate is not favourable at this point in time.
Is there some separation between the bag and body? The pictures remind a little of Deuter's aircomfort system.

No flat against the back. keeps things more stable.
Fastpacking + tenkara (well, nymphing with a seiryu rod to be more accurate). This is the previous generation 30L model. No, not the lightest stripped down UL pack, but it is good at it's intended niche - moving quickly and comfortably. If your backpacking includes some running and loads under 20 lb, it's worth a try. I find it very comfortable, and the pouches on the front are great for organization (i.e. water bottles, fly boxes/tippet, camera/phone, sunscreen, knife, headlight, TP - really, anything small that you might need quickly and don't want remove the pack). Aside from backpacking (3-4 day UL trips), this pack has worked great as a travel bag / carry-on, and fishing pack when a long approach hike is involved. Downside is your back will get sweaty.

you are right ! this pack is absolutelly amazing for fly fishing ... im however concerned about the total flatness on the back ... any thoughts ¿? ( using at the moment a Salomon s lab peak 20 ( 500 g )

I think the pack rides great, but your back will get a little sweaty. The perforated back panel fabric helps, but that's an issue with most any frameless pack. I got the old 30L to use as a multitasker that I could take out for a few days on the trail or cinch down for day use. I imagine the current smaller models (15 & 25 L) would make excellent fishing day packs when there's some hiking involved. Not the absolute lightest, but the easy-access organizational pockets on the front are outstanding for fishing.
looks like an interesting bag. Not sure I can look past the the giant brand name tag.

it will not last for long! The name that is.
is this left over merchandise from a boy band tour or something? otherwise too heavy for 25l.

Probably the funniest comment I’ve seen on massdrop. Well done sir! 😂
Are these packs considered waterproof? I see they have a waterproof zipper.

It weighs over a pound at and is called a "fastpack" for 25l? There are 50l bags that weigh less.

I thought the same thing but those are usually cuben packs and the pricing on that is waaaaaaaaaaay higher. I don't have one of these but tested one out the 35 that a friend has and I think the vest style harness is amazing. Is it worth the weight penalty, that's up to you.
This looks cool. Don't need one right now though.
When are you guys going to ship this thing?
Has anyone received a shipping notification yet?
Damn, I want to test out this 15l, think it would do well for dual-sport riding / adv crowd
geometry of the bag & lightweight materials are great, but...
I cannot get over the screaming "ultimate direction" wordage/advertising on the bag. I want to use your bag and support you, I do not want to be a liminal advertisement for your company (as much as I want you to succeed!). Really, If I ever came across this, I'd be modifying the bag to censor or remove the wordage, it could be waaay more discrete.
beyond that, great work, keep it up :)

Totally agree with you on that. I hate all the neon colours and vibrant colours on a lot of outdoor equipment.
It seems you either have to wear "tactical" or look like a billboard.
Why can't more manufactures just do subtle?
I do a fair amount of hiking/camping in forest where hunting season is very relevant to keep in mind - so having the bright colors is actually important. So it goes both ways, but setting is always key.
Is the fitment true, i currently have a nathans vapor air , it can carry up to 2L of water and some snacks , its a small, with this being a larger volume and could fill more, should i get a S/M or M/L

The storage has to do with what model you get, the small or large has to do with your chest size. The storage doesn't vary much for the respective model whether you get small or large.
