View Full Version : XTL top

04-08-2013, 04:22 PM
I just got my new Timberline. It is a good looking pack. I chose the XTL top. Is there a way to take the top off and make it into a day pack at all? I thought I had read that you could do this? Anyone have any pictures of it set up as a day pack if so?

Mine didn't come with a strap, but I got it second hand. If you are facing the lid as it is on the pack look to the two tabs just above the cylinder lock for the skirt. Pull the tabs apart like you would the map pocket in the old lid of the Alice pack. There should be a strap in there. Otherwise, I have been told the padded strap, with or without the bandolier kit, is the way to go.
