Great pack , survived 10 day Philmont Trek
Reviewed by BSA Buffalo Scouter Mom from Nebraska on Saturday, April 7, 2018
Bought this pack for my son, and I bought the female version for myself. It is a fantastic option for youth that haven’t finished growing as it is so adjustable and grows with the kids. He was about 5’10” then and is now near 6’2” and after adjusting it, it still fits. It is a good weight and was the perfect size for a 10 day trek. We both DID strap on our tents below our bags. Notable, though, the tents had a thinner diameter that the straps on the pack could wrap around them. We experienced significant rain and used external rain covers not attached to the pack, it wasn’t a big deal. It is lightweight and had a good amount of room. The top expands vertically to accomomdate an extra 10L of space hence the “+10”. It has bladder compartment that worked well, you’ll need to buy your own water bladder. I would definitely recommend this pack.
