Used for two backpacking trips this summer: a 4 mile trip and a 6.5 mile intense trip. It holds more weight than I wanted to carry! The pack was very comfortable once I got the load distributed correctly. The frame adjusts to 3 different lengths and is easy to bungee the tent onto.
Love it.

    Bought two of these from STP, Great price BTW. Bottom line these packs get the job done, they are very adjustable and two boys aged 9 and 10 love their packs. They tell me they are comfortable and they hold plenty of gear. My boys were comfortable hiking into a back country shelter for an over night trip. The packs easily held the boys Sleeping bags, pads, change of clothes, water and the food for the whole family. No complaints about the weight or fit from either boy. I would reccomend these packs and I think they would even be good for smaller adults. STP price [...] was great as always.

    WE BOUGHT 2 OF THESE FOR OUR DAUGHTERS, AGES 13 AND 11, FOR WHEN WE GO BACKPACKING. THEY COMMENTED THAT THEY WERE COMFORTABLE. WE REALLY LIKED HOW U CAN ADFJUST THE EXTERNAL FRAME, ESPECIALLY SINCE OUR 11 YR OLD IS SMALL. THE PACK FIT OUR 13 YR OLD PERFECTLY, THE WAIST BELT WAS A BIT BIG FOR THE 11 YR OLD. FOR THE PRICE, THIS WAS AN AWESOME DEAL TO GET OUR KIDS STARTED BACKPACKING.

    Second of these packs I have bought for my boys. They are great for Boy Scout camping trips and allows them to pack all the need for a three day trip to include tent and sleeping bag. Highly recommend for a new Scout just starting out. It is at the right price.
