Interesting, they're now introducing a 24L version, as well as a new color: blue. But you'll have to wait another year.

Well you can't purchase either Photohiker size at Cosyspeed so everybody who hasn't already ordered one will have to wait till next year :-(.

Have the prices increased also vs what you paid?

I'm trying out the Decathlon 30L that Chriss recommended first, should be arriving this week and then need to find a suitable ICU for that, I'll see how I get on with this cheaper route first.

Yes, prices have gone up quite a bit. I paid a little less than $300 for pack + XL cube. At least, the listing said it comes with an XL cube. I'll be mad if I only get the pack.

Yeah $300 is very reasonable but > $400 is getting a bit steep, especially when you can get the Vaude Brenta 44 + 6 (which seems to be fundamentally the same bag minus a few bells and whistles) for ~ $150 so even with an ICU added you're talking < $250 all in.

Hmm, it is not clear that the Brenta offers the same zippered access to the bottom where the ICU would be placed.
