Poco Safety Notices – Featuring Viva 50 – July 3, 2013

The Viva series is advertised as being without all the bells and whistles but I would argue that it is chocked full of features which, for the most part, increase functionality but do not add significantly to the weight. An ultra-lightweight it is not, but at 3 lbs., 8 oz., it’s a respectably light pack with a high level of comfort and durability.

Attention to small details in functionality will delight users and help make this pack a top choice; though, the ease-of-adjustability features found in the Viva series may not be as strong of a selling point for everyone. In addition to being suitable for a wide range of women’s figures, I would recommend the Viva for multi-user situations or as a child/teenager’s pack, as it has the ability to grow as they do.
