Can I ask you guys for an honest review/feedback on the SLS subject? I mean there is a ****load of generic "oh-wow" "reviews" on the matter which doesn't do any service to the community - all these look like a shamelessly generic sponsored material... What I mean is that after going through almost all North/Duotone models (Evo, Dice, Vegas+Neo) I'm looking for a really durable gear (Evo) that I will get old with (aborting my Vegas romance to make this happen
What I fished out from the marketing blurb keeps me questioning the durability of the SLS variant, hence questions
1. I can see Penta TX replacing Trinity TX - I think all good in the rip-stop department (5 filaments vs 3) - but the density had to be significantly lower (to achieve the advertised weight loss) - I guess age-related wear-and-tear, UV destruction and micro-damages will be faaaaar worse on the SLS?
2. Thinner bladders on the Evo SLS - is this true??? - this looks like an accident waiting to happen, right?
3. Any other comments on the subject of durability? Preferably some honest input from a rental with huge sample of ill-treated equipment (but I understand that it may be difficult to write openly).
