Feather Pack First Look - 2012 2 Years, 1 Month ago
Most areas where I hike require a bear canister. I have my base weight down to about 11 pounds including the bear can. Any chance the feather pack would fit a solo Bear Vault 450? Preferably horizontally?
If not, what pack would you recommend?

The Feather Pack was designed for smaller capacity. For many UL'er and SUL'ers the Swift was too large. You can use a bear canister in the Swift. However, I don't know of any that would work in the Feather and still leave much room for gear.
The existing webbing belt would work just fine. However, doing a Wing Belt that small would be a bit of a problem. By the time you account for the width of the pack and the various required webbing pieces, there would be little room left for the pocket.
