I have it on good authority from Mike that the seller of the OMM bags will accept £40 if you use the "Make Offer" link in eBay making this £47.50 delivered.

Super bargain so please don't post this on other forums or the seller will likely hike up the price!

Hopefully getting its first outing tomorrow but to date I'm really impressed. Can't for the life of me work out the best way to attach the chest pouch and the lacings round the outside are a bit of a mystery but other than that it seems great.

Naturally I had a nerdy test pack when it first arrived and with the basics of tent / sleeping bag / bivvy / cooking system / spare clothes / down vest / hat etc I reckon I was coming in at the 7kg mark so with food + extras I think that sub 10kg is definitely more than possible.

Whether it's comfy over distance or not I'll find out tomorrow..

If anyone's interested these guys to the chest pouch for £16.20 and free delivery:

It took me a few goes to get the compression right aswell. I found the best way to tackle it was to remove it completly clip it in at the base of the bag and work up. I alos clip the last bit over the top of the bag.........If that makes sense.

Does compressing it actually make much difference?
Also, is there any way to attach stuff like sleeping mats to the outside?

Just lash it to the compression cord a tighten it up. as with anything it personal pref. But It helps to stabilize the pack especially if it not full.

Did you make an offer or is there another retailer selling them?

There's at least 5 of us with this bag now. OMM should be paying us :)

made an offer of 43 hoping to get it delivered for 50 all in, but it was refused. So upped it to 45 and was accepted.  You know me, I love a bargain.
