    While you have a valid point on weight distribution, it seems to me that it would be less reach to grab & stow the ice pick, as needed, if it is off to the side. Placed in the middle, as you suggest,it would be a chore getting to it without removing the bag each time you needed it.

    Thanks for this review, Based upon it I decided NOT to buy it due to the laptop sleeve. I've newer needed a place to stow a laptop on a canoe trip!

    The zipper location is not a problem, but actually right where it should be. There are two positions the pack is in when I unzip the zipper. Neither of the two positions allow the contents to slip out. When the pack is in an upright position, I unsnap the two buckles and lift the top flap to that it is vertical which orients the zipper to the top. Nothing will fall out when in this position. Simple. When the pack is horizontal on it's backside, the zipper is again oriented to the high side, thus when opened, nothing slips out. Simple.

    I was thinking exactly the same thing when I saw this pack, zipper needs to be on the back side of the top compartment, the zipper on my really old llbean pack was like this, and when it wasnt properly closed, or when it eventually broke, gravity happened to all my stuff. The old bigelow backpacks were like this (zipper on the back side of the comparment) and they were great

    I purchased my first klettersack in 1978 from a company that no longer exists. It would accommodate a 3-ring binder and heavy text books or a gallon jug of milk for shopping for groceries on a bicycle. The zipper was in the exact same place. Since then I have purchased no less than three other klettersacks from at least two different manufacturers and they all had the zipper located in the same place as the L.L. Bean rendition of the "classic" klettersack. As other commenters have mentioned, there is good reason why the zipper is placed there. Generally you take the klettersack off to access the pocket or have a buddy access it while on your back. I've never lost anything out of any of mine yet. Similarly the zippered "hand" pockets on current model jackets often unzip up instead of unzip down which is counter-intuitive and I must admit that one does somewhat perplex me.

    If the zipper were relocated to the top, then you would not be able to put the leather patches there for lashing. It would require moving them down further, off setting the weight of anything lashed on, pretty much making them useless, in my humble observation.

    My guess is that the zipper was put at the bottom of the top flap in case the bag were to be used in bad weather. That way water would roll down the flap and off the bag rather than through the zipper into the bag. Granted this is not a waterproof bag but it should have some water resistance.
