Utility with comfort
Reviewed by BiPolar from Idaho on Wednesday, July 20, 2016
My son and I just did a 96 mile hike with this pack. Oh, where to start, it fits great (if you buy the right size), has very good space utilization, and hauls a 40 pound load with easy with no sway. I rained on us a few times, and the included cover pops right out and fits snugly. All of our items stayed dry through hours of rain. The shoulder padding and hip padding are great for under 45 pounds. The pack showed to be durable, no rips, tears or zipper problems. If I had a complaint, the lower portion that contacts your low back and hips is a little sparse on padding. If the pack is a little long, I could be a little uncomfortable on long hikes with weight over 30 pounds. We added a piece of high density foam and it worked great-I would definitely buy again despite that flaw.
