Hi there, can anybody confirm if the AR2 model is hydration bladder compatible? The description here says it is but the description on the Vargo website doesn’t mention it. Thanks

I believe these packs all have a pfc based dwr applied? Is that right?

I see the beginning of a resurgence of retro external frame pack action...possibly...it is an interesting design, no?

People starting to see the benefits, as well as the uses of lightweight metals and such. Not lugging around a steel frame anymore, lol. I have an old Kelty Trekker frame and enjoy it's versatility but it definitely is a big boi. 65L and weights about 5 pounds I think. Works great when I need it, I just don't use it much anymore. Also it's a pain in the ass when you're trying to scramble over or under anything.

I just wanted to say that I picked this pack up on Massdrop in June ‘18 and its become a favorite go-to pack. Considering I’ve got over 30 packs, including packs like the Arc Haul and HMG Windrider, that’s saying a lot. It handles 30-35 lbs without an issue (I haven’t tried more). Despite its capacity rating of 46 liters it easily carries what fills my 50l+ packs. The side pockets are are completely inaccessible unless you stop and take the pack off, the rain cover doesn’t provide full coverage, and there aren’t any straps that come with the pack to connect additional gear to the bottom part of the frame, under the pack. If you’re getting this pack, I recommend adding shoulder strap pads from Zpacks, shoulder water bottle carriers from Justin’s UL (if you’re a bottle user), and Redpoint 3/4 24” adjustable webbing straps from REI.

This 2.0 frame is bomber. I broke two of the TiArc versions. I married a rucksack to this frame and suspension. It rides like a dream. I've carried it over 1,000 miles Northbound this year from Springer to Harpers Ferry. I'm flipping to Maine for the remaining 1200 AT miles, wouldn't trade my pack for any other. My pack weight is 30-40 pounds depending upon food/water. I fell hard last week, the frame developed a small kink but is strong as ever; I'm even more confident in its longevity now. I've had to reinforce the back/ bottom of the waist belt from abrasions at 750 miles. Broke a load lifter strap at about 300 miles. Just broke the sternum buckle. Again, wouldn't trade this setup for any other.

While I agree with you that its not the "most" durable pack, I think what's only been said - and proven with experience as much as yours - is that's its durable enough. Clearly for a weekender like me, it should be. Having used an external pack early on, then finding no way to replace it as I got older (not a lightweight one anyway), its clearly a viable solution and not necessarily junk. If its technical gear that requires some babying, I think that would be something fair to say. Not everybody wants a Gregory to lug around.

What is the maximum weight that can be comfortably carried on this frame,? Maybe I missed it, my biggest issue with the original was the low weight limit.

For me, the max happy weight is somewhere in the 18-22 pound range, total pack weight. Not that I like to carry that much weight, but that was where my body max'ed out with this pack+gear. It can certainly carry more, and do so comfortable, all just depends on your body and what you are use to carrying.

My request is specifically being thrown in for the AR2. Massdrop make sure Vargo allows you to sell at LEAST a dozen this time?!

What’s up with the pack cover option? I requested it along with the pack (AR-2) but didn’t see an upcharge.

I was not charged for it, but did select it and it was in my cart. Hope it is in the box with the backpack when we all receive our packs.

11 purchased and already no AR2 packs left? Would've gotten one...guess I'll have to wait until the next drop?

Any women have this pack? If so, what's the fit like? Seriously thinking about buying the AR2.
