WHY ACTIVE suspension?

WHY ACTIVE suspension?

Black Diamond packs built with our award-winning active suspension systems—ergoACTIV, ergoACTIV XP, reACTIV and reACTIV XP—are unparalleled in comfort, efficiency and load transfer. Because the shoulder straps and hipbelt move with you, friction and hot spots are eliminated. The pack’s load stays perfectly balanced at all times—without adjustment—and allows your body to move naturally in any direction. This results in a more efficient, comfortable, longer stride—meaning you can cover more ground, more quickly.

Elixir 45 Pack - Women's is rated 1.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Bag I've ever owned! I've had this bag for almost two years. I honestly wish I would have changed by now. The product review shows this bag "puffed" to display the features. The top cover of the pack will only remain in the same position when the pack is stuffed to the brim. Otherwise it literally falls off. I'm sorry, but it really does! The pack does hold quite a bit of equipment for the climbs that I have gone on. Holds multiple pairs of shoes, harness, rope, and food. I typically put my camera inside as well. The ice tool strap is very poorly made and fell apart after the second trip. Please next time work on the quality. I really do however like the swivel hip attachment! That makes long approach hikes very comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from shoulder straps seriously uncomfortable The Man and women's version purchased and each user found the pack's shoulder straps very uncomfortable. The yoke design when loaded caused significant pressure points on the neck the user should be aware of. Both packs were returned to Black Diamond.
