Hello, and welcome to the page of the 1st Massdrop made backpack called the Shadow.
First and foremost, the Shadow was designed with all day comfort in mind. Getting the fit just right with no need for a waist belt took over 8 months in the development process. In the end, the harnesses 3 dimensional body mapping shape fits perfectly while your body is on the move.
With the 2 attachment points on each side and the dual harness connections on sliders, the Shadow can dialed in for a very stable fit and suitable as a pack you can run with. With a light and fast approach, the pack can be filled with a weekends worth of fun! While most harness styled packs need to fit similar to a large running pack, the Shadows generous size can easily fit a dedicated ultralight overnight gear-list.
The Shadow doesn't stop here. With its attractive high-end looks, it works exceptionally well as a day pack, with the ability to pack in a long days worth of just about anything, and get you through the day in style and comfort.
The Shadow is made with a durable and strong 210 denier fabric, so it's built to last. There's also 6 pockets , so you're able to stow a variety of gear in easy to reach locations. You even have a bottom pocket for quick reach items without needing to take the pack off. With a wide variety of uses and stowage options, along with being the perfect size, the Shadow is ready to go anywhere and do anything. Along with an attractive price point, I hope you enjoy the many benefits and features of the Shadow.
Also, for sizing purposes, I'm 5' 11" with a 38" chest.
The Med/Large will fit me great for hiking, but would need the small/medium to be able to run with it. The small/ medium would be a much better fit for someone my size.
They will be updating the torso fit shortly, but for chest size, I would only go with the med/large if you have a 42 inches circumference chest or more.
Thank you, Aaron Sorensen

Thanks Eric, You can thank Massdrop for the price. Comparable packs that are using $30 a yard fabric are charging 5X the price. I even hit the purchase button as soon as I saw it for that price.

Of course you can run with it. I'm an Ultrarunner and wouldn't have it any other way.
I would only go with the Med/Lager with a 42" or more chest circumference.

It's very stable while running. With 2 adjustments on both the sides and across the sternum, you can dial in the fit well enough to run with the pack. As an ultrarunner myself, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Ok buddy, but you did say you couldn’t get the the large snug enough to run with. I was just checking. So you’d size down to make it compatible with running but then it wouldn’t be comfortable for hiking. Got it

No, I only had a Medium/Large to try out. The manufacturing was still working on the small\med.
The small/ med would fit me much better as I don't have a big enough torso/ chest to fit the Large/ Ex.
It was the Med/ Large that can fit while hiking, but it's sized too big for me.

Massdrop finished their smaller sized Small/Med and compared the larger size fit to other packs.
They went with a Med/Large instead of the Large/Ex as the fit was similar to other Med/Large sized packs.

Are there any updates to the pack in this new drop? I know people were concerned about the pockets.

I will not buy this pack solely because of the lack of response from Aaron Sorenen or Massdrop.
