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.
No complaints with the pack, but Overstock sent a different color than the one pictured. The color they sent I could've bought cheaper elsewhere. First time buyer from Overstock and they ruin it from the start. Nice going.
