Does anyone know if a BV450 canister will fit horizontally in the 48L? I couldn't find any definitive information online. Unfortunately there are no mediums in the 58L, otherwise I would pick that up.

It should - I have the size large 48L and can fit a BV500 horizontally. I can post a pic or two if it helps. The 450 should be no problem!

how do these work when they're only partially full? I'm looking for a lightweight pack that'll do well on light backpacking trips and heavy day hikes (lots of food for group picnics, etc).

Does the pack have a dwr or pu or other coating applied for waterproofing or anything else? Thanks.

I purchased the Optic 58 last year and used it this Easter to walk the Cape Wrath trail in Scotland over two weeks m y overall assessment is it's a great lightweight and very comfortable pack. However it's quality is in question, the hipbelt where it attaches to the lumber pad on the left side separated over half its length and the stitching of the gusset piece at the top of shoulder straps also had stitching come apart. I have returned it under warranty and it is being repaired,however i doubt if I would chance taking it on an extended trip again. I noticed the hip belt coming away on my last day so the bag overall only covered 250 miles from new and I am easy on my gear looking after it, a big disappointment as I found it really comfortable carrying 16kgs.

I have read that the stretch material on the back and side pockets is not very durable. Can anyone comment in more detail what they have experienced?

The stretch material is durable however the weak point is on both side pockets where they join the pack i found stuffing the side pockets could easily stress this area due to the small length of attachment near the front bottle access sit.

First I owned a Gregory Palisades pack, since I was the sherpa for my two younger boys, then the Baltoro, once they could carry their own. Now I am excited about getting a much lighter UL pack for a sweet price for my next trip in the Sierras. Wish I was backpacking with the Optic 58 sooner than this August.
