water bottle pocket
The back of the pack is covered in egg crate foam stuff which is then covered in mesh. On my old packs, this was the part that got so stinky from sweat. This foam will not absorb the moisture so I guess it’ll dry faster since only the surface is wet and be easy to clean. The label claims this material is cooler. It does seem to be better ventilated and it is very comfortable against my back.

There are a lot of packs out there from which to choose. What you select really depends on your hiking style. Just like buying a pair of shoes or an RV--decide what you want to use it for then shop for something that will accommodate that use. For hiking gear, good outfitters or REI have salespeople that know their products and can really help answer your questions. They also carry quality (and usually more expensive) products. You don’t usually get the knowledgeable sales personnel or the quality products at the big box stores.
