Here's a question for the masses: do you prefer a climbing pack to taper up (like the Deuter Guide 35+, say), or taper down (like most Mammut packs?)
Most important: WHY do you like your pack to taper the way you like your pack to taper?
Do you like your pack to taper horizontally \/ /\ ? Or do you like your pack to taper vertically? (also /\ \/, but this time viewed from the side).
Do you like to tack your paper with a stack of paper tacker?
Upward taper. I prefer to have more room at the bottom for bulky items like sleeping bags.
I also feel that weight is distributed better with this shape.
