Reviewed by T from Wi on Wednesday, November 20, 2013I have not used my new pack yet, but it seems durable and well built. The inner layer that zips out to make 2 separate compartments out of the main compartment is a very cool feature! I will be retrofitting the bottom compartment to accommodate my camera and lenses on a 2 month backpacking trip in Turkey.
Reviewed by producejoedmoe from Utah on Friday, September 6, 2013This pack worked great for our trip around Europe. It was just the right size to fit as a carry-on on most of the planes we flew on, including Ryanair and EasyJet. Wizzair has smaller [free] carry-on dimensions, so it wasn't free on those flights. But we stuffed these bags, and they could still fly as a free carry-on.
I really like the compartment at the bottom and the way the access is to it -- it allows you to separate your gear, or make the main area even larger and accessible from the bottom. The side pockets that zip out larger also hold a considerable amount.
The pack is really comfortable.
The clips are a little thin, and can break easily. I had two of my clips (the belt clip & one of the clips that connects to the top flap) break on our month-long trip across Europe. It was when other people were handling my bag. I just sent the bag back for replacement, and I'll try to be more careful with my new pack.
The other issue is the internal frame, and how it sits within the pack. The frame is structured so that it keeps your pack/gear away from your back, which is nice if you're hiking in higher temperatures, since it will decrease the back sweat. However, the frame takes up a lot of the internal space. We removed the plastic clip that makes the frame bulge out, and that gave us a lot more internal space, and the pack was still really comfortable.
Overall, I really like the pack. It looks good, and it's really comfortable. The price was amazing. I did have the problem with the clips breaking, but I liked the pack enough to have it replaced instead of getting a refund, and I'll just be more careful with the new one (i.e. not letting other people handle my pack so much -- I'm pretty sure they slammed the clips in doors of cars/airplanes or something)
Reviewed by Steve - Just getting back into camping/hiking from Dayton, Ohio on Sunday, August 11, 2013I am getting back into camping and hiking after years away, and I only used this backpack once so far, but I was satisfied. It has plenty of room for my needs, but as I have already stated, I am only just returning to camping and hiking, and thus am not qualified to make an in-depth review.
Reviewed by Alex H from Connecticut on Wednesday, August 7, 2013I'm looking forward to using this product, it seems well built and well thought out. The only thing is it says it comes with a rescue whistle, while I don't know if I'd ever use it, there was no whistle to be found.
Reviewed by Bridgerunner from Bremerton Washingto0n on Monday, June 17, 2013Like the several outside pockets that can easily be opened to retrieve items without having to get into the main part of the bag. Have only used it on day hikes so far and found it convenient as had to put micro spikes on part way through the hike and they were readily available in an outside pocket. Bag is roomy without being bulky and is quite light weight yet can be expanded to hold many more items on longer hikes.
