This comfortable backpack is ideal for all outdoor activities and is designed to be both comfortable and resourceful. Here are some of the activities that Liquid Agility works well with:
Cycle helmet connects to the backpack with a carry on front vertical strap. The front pocket works great to hold bicycle locks, and there is a hydration pocket to hold your water.
There is a rear access to the main compartment as well as front and side attachment straps for avalanche probes, skis, ice axe, crampons, or a snowboard. Liquid Agility features a tortoise shell protective top pocket for glasses.
Front pocket is perfect for wallets and the hook can serve as a key ring. Trekking poles can attach to the front of the bag and the bag is designed to adjust easily.
“I found none of the usual sore spots (shoulders, hips, upper back) when I loaded the Liquid Agility with 35 pounds for a 20-mile day, as compared to virtually any other traditional internal frame pack. I'm rather convinced that decoupling shoulder and hip belt movement from the load bearing suspension components has a significant impact on muscle fatigue when carrying weight for long days. The front pocket system, which is integrated with the suspension, greatly improves the maximum load carrying capacity of the Liquid Agility pack. It carries a 30 lb (14 kg) load in outstanding comfort relative to most 30 L-range internal frame packs on the market.”

“I am extraordinarily pleased with my Aarn Liquid Agility pack. I recently took a 6 mile / 5 hour hike that had an average slope of approximately 25 percent and a maximum slope of 60 plus percent. I was carrying roughly 17 pounds in the pack. At the completion of the hike when I removed the pack, I had no sore spots and no aches in the back or shoulders. During the steepest portions of the climb I was using my hands pretty much continuously. There was no binding or pulling from the pack on either my shoulders or arms.
I used the optional Balance Pockets on this hike. The convenience offered by being able to access my stuff (glasses, GPS, maps, snacks, etc.) without removing my pack was a huge plus. I took advantage of the internal pocket and zip opening for a hydration pack, carrying 3 liters of water with electrolytes with me. It was nice to have my fluids so easily available.
In summary, with the pack and Balance Pockets I was able to walk upright with an easy movement. I had uninhibited freedom to use my hands and arms. I arrived home unstressed from carrying the pack. As a bit of frosting on the cake, getting off and on with the pack was easier than with either my day pack or bike pack. The Balance Pockets on the front make on and off of the loaded pack a bit like putting on a coat.
