Shock Cord Lashing 96"
The Shock Cord Lashing add-on can be used to hang items off your pack to dry, or to strap on additional items. The 3/32" shock cord is laced across the front of the backpack over the mesh pocket. The shock cord can be detached when not needed.
Made in the USA.
I have only tried it out on a moderate 5-mile hike with 20 pounds. The way the waistband wraps my hip bone, no wet shirt back, ingenious sizing system and weight transfer, I'm sold. Ok, it's a glorified plastic bag with tiny fittings and straps, but it's so well made and designed, both my companion and I commented that (at that weight) we occasionally forgot we were wearing a pack.
Cord is nice and stretchy. Able to throw a jacket for quick grabs or dry out your rainfly. Also if you aren’t using it doesn’t get in the way of the mesh.
Very practical, essential
