...too big for me and not really enough adjustment in the stiff straps to make it really work. The pack was a bit heavier than I expected as well. The material is definitely burly and should hold up to lots of abuse. It just wasn't going to work for canyoneering as well as I thought but a different model may.

For those who are curious, this is a US Army assault pack. It is a part of the MOLLE II system and can be attached to a frame which is part of that system. However, it is also designed to be used alone. and works great in that capacity. The volume is 2000 cu. in. or 32.7 liters. In the Q&A of this item, someone asked about the white straps and green strap loop that can be deployed out of slots. While, as STP replied, they can be used as load securing straps, in actuality, they were originally intended for airborne troop use. The white straps attach this pack to a parachute pack and the loop is for lowering the pack as a drop bag by a parachutist. This should give you some idea of just how amazingly sturdy this pack is. While it is frameless, there is a removable foam pad and plastic panel for back protection. Also, the face and sides of the pack have numerous MOLLE straps which are for attaching auxiliary pouches (not included) or just about anything you can fasten on for that matter. For what this is, the price makes it a great value.

Having served during the very early 70's, the new mil spec equipment is remarkable. We where using Korean War back gear then.
If you want a piece of equipment that will last who knows how long. Rigged for ground born troops and airborne troops.
Go for it. You will not be disappointed when you get familiar with the equipment.

There are some 18" long or so webbing straps that are designed to thread through some openings in the top of the pack.
At first this appeared to be a disadvantage and I was thinking the pack should be returned, until I realized the webbing could be shortened and the holes would facilitate carrying a two piece fishing pole by letting the end of the fishing pole extend through the top of the pack.
This is a convenient solution to carrying a fishing pole to the fishing spot; most packs make no provision for carrying a two piece fishing pole and this pack looks like it would work for that.
