WHY ACTIVE suspension?

WHY ACTIVE suspension?

Black Diamond packs built with our award-winning active suspension systems—ergoACTIV, ergoACTIV XP, reACTIV and reACTIV XP—are unparalleled in comfort, efficiency and load transfer. Because the shoulder straps and hipbelt move with you, friction and hot spots are eliminated. The pack’s load stays perfectly balanced at all times—without adjustment—and allows your body to move naturally in any direction. This results in a more efficient, comfortable, longer stride—meaning you can cover more ground, more quickly.

Onyx 65 Pack - Women's is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zippers keep falling apart. I brought this backpack few years ago and used it like twice before the zippers started to fall apart on the top part of the backpack. I didn't realize they separated and things fell out while I hiked. I had to get it repaired in emergency by a tailor but it still didn't work out well. I would recommend this backpack only if this issue has been fixed. Black Diamond is one of my to-go brand for outdoors and I try to buy their products as often as but if I were you, I'd look at another Black Diamond backpack with better top part, not this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from still undecided I just used this pack for the first time on a 60 mile 5 day hike. I got blisters on my shoulders and hips. Other wise it seemed to fit well. I got a med even though my measurements indicated a small. The small really did not feel comfortable. The biggest disappointment was the lack of pockets. It was a pain digging through the pack for frequently used items. The zipper on the top pack separated a couple times but for now is holding. I will have to play with the adjustments to see if I can prevent the blisters.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Zippers are terrible Something needs to be done about the zippers. This is a terrible design, the zippers do not work properly and they are all coming out of the seems. I only had this pack for a couple of months when I started having problems. The seems on the inside are falling apart. Pack has good potential if they would replace the zippers with a normal zipper!
