    I posted about my less than awesome Wingnut experiences earlier in this thread from my purchase of a larger WN Adventure pack. I have been looking for a smaller lumbar style pack for the last few years and came up with few options. I tried a Camelbak Skyline and while it gets marks for looks and construction details it's heavy and doesn't wrap around me for stability.

    I kept hunting around, but finally concluded it was worth trying Wingnut again despite my poor experience last time. I mentally wrote off the money so no matter what happened I wouldn't be unhappy.

    Anyways to make a long-story short:

    - I ordered a WN 3.0 on 27 Feb 2017
    - rec'd order confirmation promptly
    - rec'd a request for extra shipping $$ due to my being in Canada [ I'm okay with that.]
    - rec'd pack on 16 Mar 2017


    I have only done a quick test fit, but my problems with the previous harness not fitting are not apparent this time so I'll chalk that up to an improperly sewn harness. The bag looks good and I'm happy I gave WN another shot.

    I'll post some pics and review later. I just thought I should update my previous comments with the new data.

    Quick update on the WN 3.0 pack. I'm liking it better than the Camelbak Sykline 10R in most respects. It carries my gear more comfortably and it's more stable for techy AM riding. The main downside with the WN pack is the hose routing is goofy and doesn't seem well thought out for a dedicated hydropack, but I've got some ideas for DIY work arounds that should make me happy enough.
    Safe riding,
