Friday about five o’clock is it and it’s a
beer and gear time. Beer o’clock review as some people like to
call it. So we’ll start with beer and we talk about
some gear. First of all the beer we have got a new one
sent to us courtesy of the Garage Project. I love you guys. We got a Turbine Pale Ale. Tell us about it. Citrusy. He’s very good on tasting notes. I saw the ads on TV it’s powered by wind. Exactly! Wellington wind. Onto the gear coz you could never have enough
ruck sacks in your life or backpacks pens where you come from in the world. We have brought Deuter into the store, German
brand really good packs we’ve got ladies these are ladies and we’ve got full range of men’s
and Dan himself is gonna run you through some of each of these fine packs okay Lots of different
capacities going on bro. Let’s look at the features on 2 of them. They’ve got Air Contact and Air Contact Light. Features do change accordingly though so obviously
heavy duty materials and a lighter pack. But if we could just look at the Air Contact
first Usual features you’d expect, places to put your poles or ice axe that sort of
thing nice foam comfortable harness is what this is all about and it’s adjustable as well. Hip pads that flex and move you’ve got foam
in there so when you squeeze it it’s pumping out you know some air through there gets this
one away and then you also have the ability to shift the harness up or down so if you’re
taller or shorter you can move it accordingly that’s as simple as undoing that velcro tab
there and then you’ve got this ladder in the back and you can move that up or down. If you’re shorter like me you can also even
undo the load straps and shift it down. On the front, you’ve got the normal top edge
reloading system but you’ve the front of the pack the ability to get into the middle also
so if you forgot it’s gonna rain and you got your jacket stuffed in there you can easily
get in there to the middle of the pack and get access. So you got top middle and bottom access and
at the very bottom you’ve got sleeping compartment as well, so you’ve got your sleeping bag compartment
there and you can unzip the central compartment make it a whole one big thing or you can keep
that division in the center there. Tucked in the bottom there there’s a little
extra you got your rain cover built in so that’s pretty cool nice feature. What else? pockets in the belt, pockets on the side little
pocket at the top so overall just like nice heavy-duty traditional pack comfortable to
use and tough material you can see there’s a zip on that nice heavy-duty gauge zipper
and then if we compare that to Air Contact Light it is kind of the same but not it’s
light materials but one of the big difference is you don’t have that entry panel at the
back there. They replaces it with a big stretchy pocket
there so you can throw a jacket in there but you still have sleeping bag access to the
bottom top entry access there and then again all the other features you’d expect. Now the back system is different so you lose
that flexibility that movement on the fins that this pack has. You can see how that really does flex in that
stationary. You still have the adjustability though so
you can fit this pack to most people pretty easily and then just a little bit less padding
so you got a different set. So there you have it that’s the Air Contact
and Air Contact Light and there’s lots of different sizes these are the 65 plus 10,
you’ve got 40 plus 10, 50 plus 10, 55 plus 10 and then like rocky said it earlier ladies
models as well they’re shorter torso so there’s different sizes so shorter torso slightly
different sizes for ladies models but if you got the same same ones so we’re looking at
the same features fantastic yeah great thank you
