It's an obsession but it's pleasin'
Yes! I forgot to include that in my review. The airflow is definitely improved with the FW8....the airflow upgrade...
Also, I remembered the other idea I had for iterative improvements, also relating to the pods:
What if the extra pod carrier had two sliding covers on the top and bottom sides? Then you wouldn't have to have a pod be upside down when placing it in the carrier. Plus, if you opened both sliders enough to reach a pod, you could gently push it out from one side and catch it coming out the other without having to tap on the carrier to dislodge it, thereby perhaps loosening your pack.
Like I said earlier, the FW8 is a most effective beast and makes my brain go to weird places.
