Would you get the standard lid or the long hunter with the DT 1? The pack is 7200, do I need the extra room?
I really like having a little extra storage up top. You can throw maps compass and other things you might want to access a lot. It all depends what you want but for a minor weight penalty the extra 1000 ci of storage on the longhunter sure is nice.
I use an E&E for a lid, in place of the standard lid and longhunter lid. Don't need the space, but the organization is nice. And I will be able to mount the lid to the bikini frame when I make camp. Also makes for the perfect stalking pack after your main pack is dropped.
I didn't care for the longhunter lid too much after I got to play around with it.
I went with standard since there is so much room in the DT1. If I were to get the DT2 or 3, I would probably upgrade on the lid.
