Reviewed by Connie from College Station on Wednesday, March 8, 2017I bought this backpack for my boyfriend, who had been using an external old-school backpack. He likes this one much better. Great for weekend hiking trips. Amazing price!!! Can't beat that.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Linda from Kansas on Friday, February 10, 2017It seems very durable, I really like the large size, side pockets and front compartment.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mike from Georgia on Wednesday, February 8, 2017The materials are high quality and the pack is easy to size. The side pockets are deep and stretchy, and the hip pockets are actually big enough to use.
Its compression system is interesting but I'm not sure how effective it is. But my biggest complaint is the weight. At 5lbs this pack is heavy for its capacity. This is due to the frame which are thick steel bars. They do however distribute weight well and help airflow to the lower back.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by docglj from Linville Gorge on Thursday, February 2, 2017The pack is made of quality materials and is sturdy enough but still relatively light-weight. The plastic internal frame is a nice design that fits well and avoids the complexity and potential difficulties (that I have experienced previously) of aluminum stays. Because of the comparatively small size, the pack lacks a lower entrance but I don't believe that this will be a difficulty considering that this is a pack for shorter trips, not necessarily designed for an extensive trek. I bought this on closeout and it was an exceptional value at a very low price.

“I'm thinking of ordering this backpack for my husband, but I am getting confused by the torso sizes. Would it fit a man with a size 36 inch waist? Thanks!”
Most backpack belts extend to about 50-55" around the waist. These are measured by torso length to be able to tell if it will fit height wise.
