I finally posted my pics.

Humm, Why I like it better than the Exos? The ridged frame on the Exos bugs me and it doesn't conform as well to my back & shoulders as the Hornet. I have a very short torso and I'm small. I am always challenged to find the right pack that fits, so if you have a long torso it may not suit you. So far the Hornet is my Go-To and I didn't even try it on before I acquired it. It was gifted to me by a friend and he had added some closed cell foam from a blue pad into the hip pockets for more cushioning. It takes up the extra room in them but helps with the comfort.
Hope to see you at the Florida hang in Jan.

Thanks ldcakes! I can make it out to the Florida hang Friday and Saturday, but have to leave Saturday evening. I have a business conference to go to on Sunday morning (I know, Sunday, right!?).
