This compression pack set helps me limit what I bring on my trips. A blessing because like you I often overpack and then end up shedding things while traveling.
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.
Absolutely perfect!!! Was used on a mission trip to Peru and was ideal for numerous outings there. Held everything to be used for a whole weeks trip in one backpack.
