    Looks great and suppose that it is quite comfortable. How much did you pay?

    You're welcome. It's for attaching a hip belt and part of the emergency release system.

    There are better packs. If properly worn it's ok but far from comfortable.

    Well, at least it looks sturdy and well constructed. As someone who uses Austrian KAZ75 winter trousers this time of the year (A LOT), I have a special respect for Austrian quality.
