Real Customer Reviews
- Great Backpack
Likes: Ample storage space; great for multi-day or thru hikes; Comfortable hip belt & shoulder straps
Dislikes: Water bottle pockets could be a little shorter for better re-entry
- Great size and features
Likes: Size is great, main compartment is just under 40L according to my measurements, data I couldn't find anywhere. Add pockets and cap and about 60L.
Nice hip belt with pockets.
Roll down top is easy to use.
Shoulder straps fits great, I am average/athletic build, 5'7".
Pack weight exactly as advertised.
Dislikes: Back panel is stiffer than expected and rubs a little on lower back. Have not used on long hike yet.
Tensioning straps on sides and over top are hard to pull through the buckles.
Not a fan of the two to one over the top strap, would rather it be two individual buckles.
- Excellent fit, quality construction, minimal testing
Likes: Good stitching
The fabric used on the pack feels sturdy and durable despite the weight.
With a 21.5" torso, the straps on the long size pack are at the right height relative to my shoulders.
Adjusting the waist belt was a breeze.
Dislikes: None so far. Short excursions have gone smoothly. Planning on through hiking this pack next summer to really text it.
- Love this pack
Likes: Ultralight(when stripped), very customizable, comfortable
Dislikes: None so far
- Light and Customizable
Likes: Light for the volume it has. Waist belt allows for the perfect sizing.
Dislikes: None so far.
- Excellent Lightweight Purpose Built Pack
Likes: I enjoyed using this pack last week as I hiked in the Appalachians. I used the pack with an early spring load-out (few warm items and an extra set of dry clothes) weighing in between 18-25 lbs depending on my trips. I love how light it is overall and it carries nice and close to the body. I used it to cross a roaring river 15-30 times and it clung to me like a little comfortable alien on my back! I love the lid because I need it for hygiene, maps, etc. Love it. Nice color too to blend in. Very well thought out.
Dislikes: The waist belt is fairly thin and wimpy, but this is a minimalist design. It was comfortable with the weight I had, but could perhaps go a little thicker there. Also the hip belt pockets are not waterproof so that would be a nice touch for valuables if they were.
