    Squeaky pack

    Wrap a little tape around the end to bulk up whatever frame is shifting and making noise?

    hummm I should of mentioned its not a frame pack, and the noise comes form the where the pack rubs on my hips/lower back.

    Agree with Matt re materials, also if you have swapped out to tusx camo that can be fairly audible too when rubbed with certain materials, know of a few ppl that had to change pack brands when upgrading to schist.

    Silicone spray can be useful.
    The degree of satisfaction gained from the accomplishment of a goal is directly proportional to the hardships and challenges overcome in order to achieve it.

    I've had several packs "squeak" as well mate...tried adjusting, lubing, etc... nothing I tried worked.
    Also find that my leather chaps that Rhino made me squeak sometimes too!
