    The LL3s look stitched on - no clips. I think you loosen them enough to unroll and open up the top but each side of the top closure is always attached to the lines that run though the LL3s. Then after you close and roll, you tighten the lines again.

    I have no idea but... permanently attached would mean they wouldn't fall into the dirt when you open the pack. I've never seem it done on a pack before, though. Has anyone?

    I can't see how that would work Mike, wouldn't the unrolling of the top would just tangle up the now long cords? Threading and un-threading each time can't be right either, I'm intrigued, so have emailed them :)

    I agree, but I wonder whether they think it's OK for the cords to tangle / untangle each time. Look close:

    The linelocs look permanently stitched on to me, and each end of the cord looks to be attached as well. Threading / unthreading would be a faff.

    Does one end of the cord attach to the cord system for the pad and the other end pulled to create tension? Maybe loop and mitten hook? Looks like a lot of cord flapping about loose (in the pocket) pivoting through the LL3 when unrolled perhaps?

    At risk of offending the milligram counters, anyone else think that having the white inner cord bare without a proper cord end is a bit much considering the cost of the thing?

    Will be interested to find out when Shewie gets his reply...

    Just noticed it now but the pictures of Joe wearing it seem to show one of the ends hanging down into the mesh pocket, I reckon it's a rethreading job having seen that, dropping the loose end back into the grossgrain loop it passes through

    I do kind of like the Nero. But can it play fiddle? ;)
