I began using/testing the Umpqua Ledges 500 Waist Pack in March of 2013. For me, a waist pack needs to be all-purpose. My initial thought around the aluminum stays that really set this pack apart from other waist packs was: “Hmmmm… not sure I like those aluminum bars.”
After using the Ledges 500 for three months I can report that this is probably the most comfortable pack I’ve used and also the easiest to access. I've also found some very solid design features that makes this pack stand out from the crowd.
