    Got my WN Adventure Pack today. Looks good. Just waiting for some less wet weather to get out and use it.

    The order to delivery timeframe was looooooong...so be ready for that and don't expect to get one overnight for a trip.

    What king of bladder do you use for the Wingnut Hyper 2.5?
    Camelbak LR ?

    Looking at the picture I can't see where a regular .70 bladder would go

    What happened to Wingnut packs?

    Finally received my warranty Hyper 2.5 a couple weeks ago. Took a while but Scott came through. Answered emails and even the phone , so maybe things have come together.

    I got my WN pack after a long multi-month wait.

    Tried it out and the harness didn't fit me very well around the shoulder/neck area.

    Had a friend with sewing skills try and help me modify the harness, but the result wasn't any better.

    Started thinking about ordering a new harness or having somebody else local build me a harness to work with the pack.

    Then realized how much $$/time I had invested without getting a pack that worked for me so I just gave up and spent hr shopping locally and bought an off the shelf pack that fits great.

    The design of the WN pack looks good, but there were so many snafus in my experience I'd be hard pressed to recommend anyone buy one - unless you are able to find a store that stocks them and try on the one you are going to buy.

    I have never had fit issues with a pack before and my dimensions are normal so I can't explain the poor fit of the harness. I don't have a second one try on to see if it was a production mistake or if the WN packs just don't fit me.

    I can typically walk into an outdoor store and walk out with a comfortable pack in 10-15 mins so I'm not normally hard to fit.
    Safe riding,

    After reading about these great packs I ordered a hyper 2.5 and can't wait to start riding with it. What's the best blatter for the 2.5 these days? I see that the square ones people use to use isn't being used anymore. Thanks

    Thanks, I hadn't seen that one yet. It looks perfect for the hyper 2.5.
