    I 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.

    It seems very durable, I really like the large size, side pockets and front compartment.

    The 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.

    The 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 needed a pack for SAR missions and this is it!

    This pack is a great value for the price and performance. It is a larger size but works very well. The exterior, vertical outside zippered pocket only allows a few items when bag packed, but that is very minor. Overall, an incredible find.

    I am glad that I finally pulled the trigger and picked this pack up. I had it in my cart many times, but the single mediocre review made me hesitate. The pack arrived today.. my first impression is that this is a high quality well built pack. It fits comfortably and all the fits and pieces are of the same premium quality as my expensive Thule day gear. I can't wait to get it loaded up and out on the trail this spring.

    So the first problem with this pack is the compression cord that goes around the side to the front covers the size zippered areas - on both sides. So getting to the last 1/3 of the side zipper area is difficult. If you are putting in something big, you will have to go through the top. The hole in the front where the cord comes out also makes a nice place for water to come into the bottom area. The fabric is ok, but pretty lightweight.
