As has been said before, this pack needs some small outside pockets for the little things like sunscreen, bug spray, snacks etc.... That aside, this is the most comfortable backpack that I have ever used, very adjustable and the removable day pack is a nice touch. For the price you can't beat it.Read More
I boughtthis pack 4 weeks ago and I've hiked 19 miles on the Colorado Trail and 3.5 on the approach to a 14er. I'm very satisfied with the pack. The summit pack is a great feature. I used it to hike up to the summit of Mt of the Holy Cross. It was jut the right size.Read More
I bought this pack for a 5 day 50 miler with the Boy Scouts and it worked great. The U shaped zipper that allows you to access the pack without having to empty it was awesome. The detachable daypack is also a nice touch. My only complaint is that the water bottle holders are tough to reach if you have the pack on. Overall, well worth the price.Read More
This is an awesome packpack! I really love the fact that it is front and top loading. The fact that you can expand the pack volume is also really cool. One thing I don't like about this pack though, is that it has no pockets or anyway internally to organize your gear. The hip belt and suspension are really comfortable, and transfer the weight to your hips very well. I also like the ajustable torso length length length length length length too. A final icing on top of the cake was the included day pack that nicely straps to the front of the pack. All in all, this is a great pack for the money, especially if you want one that is front loading.Read More
