I ordered this as an alternative to my Kelty 5600 Red Cloud pack which I use on week (or longer) long trips. I wanted something in the 3500-4000 range. I saw this and read some reviews on other sites which were all encouraging. I ordered it an am impressed for the most part. Here is my take.Positives:- Well made- Lots of lash points- well padded back and straps- Ski compatible- Very light weight- Very nice strap adjustment systems, best I have worked with.Negatives:- No hydration compartment. Will need external chamber.- Adjustment of torso length not well designed but workable.- Only tunnel access.Over all I really like that pack and would recommend it for beginner to intermediate backpackers or someone looking for a inexpensive second pack. I am sold on this brand and would consider getting another by High Peak to compliment this one.
Works and fits very well. I bought it for a small backpack that I use on day trips. Fits securely and is quick and easy to put on. I even use it on my 'around town' bookpack. This takes a little adjusting as a bookpack has straps that attach at the top seam and there is little "pack" to wrap the top of the cover over, but it is doable.
