Since having purchased this pack I feel that I have finally found the perfect pack for me. This pack is heavy, but it is also heavy duty. Construction is top notch and super tough. If you are looking for a very durable pack that will allow you to carry more than you really need, this might be the... Read More

    Had this Pack now for over a year and have carried it across rivers, valley's and up mountains. this pack is comfortable and very stable. Lots of bells and whistles in the form of straps to stabilize a properly loaded pack. The ice axe loops, floating lid, as well as straps inside the sleeping system carrying area to hold your sleeping bag/bivie bag are really nice extras. This pack can carry a 50kg load easily without a feeling of the frame flexing too much. Great rucksack, too bad it's not available anymore. If ever you find one get it. I am looking for another one for a reserve.

    Strongest backpack! Durable and top quality material!

    Anyone planning to leave Earth and never comes back, hesitate no more, this is the one!

    One flaw, pity on the person who is going to carry it.

    and the real flaw, stitching is single, lowe alpine could do triple stitching for this backpack, being their top model and cost this expensive.

    Overall, this is the best backpack ever! It is heavy, but will last for a long time with the durability. =D

    I bought the pack for long term survival to hold all of my gear and then some. I holds all I have with room to spare. After talking to and comparing stuff with survivalist friends, they brought to my attention that its a great pack for camping or very long term suvival as it holds so much. However, they also informed me that for immediate survival the whole pack was way to big and heavy with all of my gear. So the great thing about this pack is the two side pouches can be detached and put together to form the "immediate" survival pack. The combination of these two things makes this pack the perfect pack due to its versatility. Its very durable too with good zippers, lots of compression straps.

    As a survivalist I could not have found a better backpack when it comes to reliability,toughness, and also the ability to carry a large amount of gear. the side packs unzipping becoming a day pack with its own shoulder straps. the ability for the adjustment settings for the right person is easily done on this backpack. It will fit anyone. That is if you have the physical ability to carry this . You will never have to buy a long-distance pack again.
