    I generally prefer thumbnails, because it gives the reader power and control, rather than cramming big photos (that someone else likes) down his/her throat.

    I couldn't have explained it any better. I concur.

    Any pictures with it on your pack? I know you said it was OK for a pack cover, but it just seems to me it would be too loose and fall off?

    Let's see if this photo attachment works. As you can see, it works fine as a pack cover. We just tied a knot or two in the fabric itself to take up the slack. This was last weekend, at Land Between the Lakes, opening for bow-hunting season in Kentucky. The blaze orange worked! We weren't shot with a single arrow the whole weekend!

    The pack was a half-empty REI UL 45 (the model before they gave it a name). So, it's a small pack, too.

    I prefer thumbnails. If you do it right they are actively linked to the full size image. Click on it and you get the big. I have a slow broadband and the repeated loading of lots of full sized images get frustrating at times.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I found another photo, where the excess material was not tied up in knots. Enjoy!
