Set out for an adventure with this durable Everest backpack. This 24-inch polyester backpack has a chest buckle strap and a padded shoulder strap for extra protection and comfort. It also has an adjustable waist strap and convenient key ring....more
I bought this pack to be used as a 72 hour emergency pack for my wife. She had been using a nylon duffle but had a hard time carrying it. We selected this pack because it appeared to be light weight, water resistant with outside pockets. The sholder straps are adjustable and the waist and chest straps help to stablize the sholder straps. I would like to see about 4-5 more small out side pockets. This pack is stored in the trunck of oour car for emergency use.
How accurate was the sizing? This pack hold all of the items needed for one person as a 72 hour kit.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The fabric is water resistant and appears to have good stiching.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No defects were noted
I purchase these for my non-profit www.lovepeopleproject.org. They are perfect for the price, size, and quality. They are basic old style mountaineering backpacks that have an internal size of 60+. I'm very happy I can get them here at O, I'm saving money, and providing more "Life Packs" for more people. Delivery is 2 days..insane. Happy shopper!
One of the straps with a buckle / attachment device on the end that is to fit into the other end of the buckle was reversed so when the buckle is connected the strap is not flat but had a roll / twist in it, if the strap is flat the buckle upside-down. I pulled the sowing out the end of the strap and turned over the buckle then re-sowed the end and its fine. Ended up being too large for what I got it for so I got a smaller one and kept this one for camping.
I ordered it for my 11 year old Scout to go on trips. Based my decision on other reviews. For the price, it matches the quality. The waist straps are not as cushioned as the pricey packs you purchase from the big outdoor stores. Big negative was the smell of the pack when we opened it. It smelled of gasoline. The smell went away after a weekend of backpacking out in the open.

The backpacks arrived (I ordered 2) for our pending trip to Europe and when they arrived they were larger then expected.. I guess I did not figure 24" to be an oversize backpack. i wanted it to be my large personal item on the plane but it is more like a carry on in size. Good for some but for me too large.. The dislike I have regarding the product is that it smells like gasoline.. I have aired it out.. frebreezed it.. and rinsed it off but still have not found a place to keep it because of the smell. I hope it goes away soon.
How accurate was the sizing? I guess they are accurate although they are larger then I expected..

Is this bag water proof or water resistant? Could you expain the difference between the two, if any? Thank you!loveodotco on May 31, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The bag is not water proof but water resistant. Water proof typically means that it will block out all water in nearly all wet conditions. Water resistant typically means that water will bead off the bag and not soak easily. However, it will soak and get wet in continued wet conditions. The item is made of thick 600 Denier Polyester and has an inner lining that assists with resisting water.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 5, 2012
