Big back­pack, small back­pack

The Hamilton Spectator - - STYLE - JEFF BANOWETZ

This back­pack from Sierra De­signs de­serves a look on its name alone, the Flex Ca­pac­i­tor, hear­ken­ing back to ev­ery­one’s favourite time-travel movie from the 1980s. But the flex­i­ble ca­pac­ity this back­pack is re­fer­ring to is its abil­ity to tran­si­tion from a 40-litre pack to a 60 litre pack though an in­ge­nious sys­tem of cinch straps. Pack every­thing you need for ei­ther a short or long trip, keep­ing every­thing snug in the process. Of course, the con­cept only works if the rest of the pack’s fea­tures are up to par, and the Flex Ca­pac­i­tor hits all those marks as well.

The ul­tra­lightweight design (just two and a half pounds when empty) en­sures that you’re not car­ry­ing more ounces than nec­es­sary, while the Y-Flex sus­pen­sion sys­tem make car­ry­ing the weight as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble. $200, sier­rade­signs.com
