Review by: mgoodro, 2005-05-07

Simple, functional, durable, and comfortable, this is simply the best pack I have ever used. The hip-belt supports more weight more comfortably than my Kelty or North Face packs. The straps are all extra long simplifying lashing on extra gear. Multiple panels offer great access to the main compartment. The removable hydration pocket holds a 70oz bladder easily and 100oz with a tall load. The waterproof bottom is ideal for setting the pack on snow or mud. The hip belt and shoulder straps are interchangable allowing for a more customized fit, essential for a tall skinny guy like me. This is a very roomy pack which I have comfortably loaded up to 55lbs, though a wider shoulder strap would be better for a load that size.
